And in hamburg, a crisis summit is about to take place: the start of the 55th soccer season. Bundesliga season will be anything but quiet.
The 55. Bundesliga season started like the four previous ones: bayern munchen played the opening match as german soccer champion and set a first sign to the competitors like borussia dortmund or RB leipzig with the 3:1 victory against bayer leverkusen.
Dutchman peter bosz will start for dortmunder on saturday (15 p.M.).30 p.M.) will make his bundesliga debut as one of four coaches at the match against vfl wolfsburg. In the top match this evening (18.30 p.M.), runners-up leipzig will take on FC schalke 04, who, like their rivals BVB in the ruhr, want to return to the top with a newcomer to the first division on the coaching staff.
Debuts: four coaches take on the bundesliga adventure for the first time: peter bosz succeeds the ousted thomas tuchel at cup winners borussia dortmund, but before his premiere he first had to deal with the swirl surrounding ousmane dembele, who is willing to switch clubs. Schalke 04 relies on 31-year-old domenico tedesco, who plays host to runners-up RB leipzig in the season opener. Hannes wolf has led vfb stuttgart back into the elite league and is making his debut at the beletage in berlin. After his promotion from the 2. Team to head coach of the professionals at FSV mainz 05, sandro schwarz is expected to bring a calmer season to the rhinelanders as martin schmidt’s successor, starting with a win against hannover 96.
COMEBACK: the world champion is back at last. After more than half a year, mario gotze plays a mandatory match for borussia dortmund again. The 25-year-old is firmly scheduled to play in wolfsburg. "Mario has been through it all. Things are looking good for him," said trainer bosz. The scorer of the winning goal in the 2014 world cup final made his last compulsory appearance for dortmunder on 29 january 2014. January in mainz. Gotze then dropped out due to a metabolic disorder.
CRISIS CLUBS: the bundesliga season hasn’t even really started yet, and there’s already a lot of unrest at hamburger SV and FC augsburg. The embarrassing cup defeats of HSV in osnabruck and FCA in magdeburg have put a damper on the anticipation of the start for the clubs and their fans. In hamburg, investor klaus-michael kuhne’s criticism of coach markus gisdol, the club’s top management, and sporting director jens todt is also shooting across the club’s board of directors. Augsburg had to cope with the surprising departure of striker raul bobadilla to gladbach this week. Now HSV and FCA meet right at the start – and only the winner can hope for some peace of mind.
