Bayern face Moenchengladbach in Bundesliga opener

By Football News



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.
