Reigning champions Bayern Munich will again be hot favourites for this season's Bundesliga crown as it returns to Australian TV screens in August. Bayern won its 31st crown last season, which is the best record of any German domestic team, and its 9th title in a row.

Bayern's biggest rivals will again be Borussia Dortmund, led by star striker Erling Braut Haaland. Haaland is one of a number of young stars Dortmund have produced in recent seasons, the team noted for its ability to play attacking, exciting football. RB Leipzig and Borussia Monchengladbach will also chase silverware.

Monchengladbach hosts Bayern in the first match of the season, which begins Australian time on Saturday 14 August with matches starting from 4:20am AEST.

This will be the 59th Bundesliga season, with 18 teams playing a total of 34 matches each across the campaign.
