Welcome to our Bundesliga season preview, as the German football championship kicks off this weekend.

The 2019-20 Bundesliga campaign starts tonight with the encounter between Bayern Munich and Hertha BSC at the Allianz Arena.

Traditionally, there are 18 teams that will compete for the ultimate football prize in German football – the prestigious Meisterschale trophy.

VfB Stuttgart, Hanover and Nuremberg suffered relegation to the second-tier division last season, while Cologne and Paderborn returned, alongside Union Berlin, who were promoted to the Bundesliga for the first time in history.
