Bayern face Moenchengladbach in Bundesliga opener

21 June 2013 12:46

Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich will begin the defence of their title with a home fixture against Borussia Moenchengladbach on August 9.

Munich, who completed an unprecedented treble in German football last season, lost just once in the league in 2012-13, and finished 25 points clear of Borussia Dortmund in second.

The match against Moenchengladbach will be new manager Pep Guardiola's first league fixture in charge of the Bavarian giants.

Dortmund, who won the league in 2012, start their campaign with an away fixture at Augsburg as they look to reclaim their title.

Jurgen Klopp will have to regalvanise his side, following defeat in the UEFA Champions League final to rivals Bayern.

The two will go head-to-head on the weekend of November 22-24 at the Westfalenstadion, with the return fixture scheduled for the weekend of April 11-13, 2014.

Dortmund's first home league fixture will be against Bundesliga new boys Eintracht Braunschweig.

Braunschweigh return to the top-flight for the first time in 28 years and will start the season at home to Werder Bremen.

Fellow promoted side Hertha Berlin have been handed a difficult opening fixture, as they entertain Frankfurt.

Manager Sami Hyypia will hope his side can mount another challenge for Europe, and perhaps even a bid for the title.

Elsewhere on the opening day, Hamburg face a difficult trip to the Veltins-Arena to face Schalke, while Hannover host Wolfsburg- who will be looking to build on a disappointing 11th-placed finish last season.

Hoffenheim survived a relegation play-off against Kaiserslautern to retain their place in the Bundesliga. They welcome Nuremberg to the Wirsol Rhein-Neckar-Arena on the first weekend.

At the Coface Arena, Mainz will start their season by hosting Stuttgart.
