At the start of the Bundesliga season, European Cup winner Frankfurt welcomes champions Bayern. The line-ups of the teams hold surprises.
Star newcomer Sadio Mane is in the starting XI of Bayern Munich at the start of the Bundesliga. After the departure of Robert Lewandowski, the former Liverpool player forms the new double leadership of the record champions together with Serge Gnabry. National keeper Manuel Neuer is also part of the starting line-up despite his break in training due to gastrointestinal problems against Eintracht Frankfurt.
Coach Julian Nagelsmann trusts the winning team from the Supercup against RB Leipzig (5:3). The other newcomers Matthijs de Ligt, Ryan Gravenberch, Noussair Mazraoui and Mathis Tel are all on the bench at the start. Ex-Munich Mario Götze is in the starting XI for the Bundesliga comeback.
This is the starting lineup of the European Cup winner Eintracht Frankfurt: Trapp – Ndicka, Toure, Tuta – Kostic, Sow, Rode, Lindström, Borre, Knauff – Götze.
This is how Munich start the first game of the season: Neuer – Pavard, Upamecano, Hernandez, Davies – Musiala, Sabitzer, Kimmich, Müller, Gnabry – Mane.
