Bayern Munich

Undoubtedly, the defending champion Bayern Munich is expected to win the Bundesliga trophy for the three consecutive years though the team dropped of their imperious form at the end of last campaign. But in the new season of 2015-16, Bayern is facing a lot of challenges as for the first time they are expecting to win the league for four consecutive years. They have boosted their chances with the new signing of midfielder Arturo Vidal (Juventus FC), speedy winger Douglas Costa (Shakhtar Donetsk) and young Kimmich.


The nearest title challenger for Bayern is Wolfsburg as this last year’s runners-up has made some shrewd moves in order to overcome from the runners-up position to the champion’s place. Coach Dieter Hecking is expecting a lot from Germany’s player of the year Kevin de Bruyne who will get the support from the new point man, Max Kruse who has joined from Borussia Monchengladbach to Wolves. In order to handle the defensive side the coach depends on Luiz Gustavo, Naldo, Timm Klose, Ricardo Rodriguez and captain Diego Benaglio.
