See results

FC Bayern Munchen 3-1 VfL Borussia Monchengladbach

Here we are, finally one of the big three leagues have kicked off their season. Germany along with Spain and England are considered the big three when in comes to UEFA. Those clubs are always the top three clubs every year. Germany finished last year ranked third in UEFA's Country Coefficient rankings but closed the gap on both Spain and England as FC Bayern Munchen won the Champions league over fellow German club Borussia Dortmund.

FC Bayern Munchen kicked off the season with the only match on August 9th. Bayern got goals from Arjen Robben(12th), Mario Mandzukie(16th) and David Alaba(69th P) to defeat VfL Borussia Monchengladbach 3-1. Bayern's Dante scored an own goal in 40th minute for Borussia.

Saturday Action: Borussia Dortmund 4-0 FC Augsburg

Six matches were played on Saturday August 10th with Hertha BSC Berlin getting a big 6-1 win over Eintracht Frankfurt. Adrian Ramos(18th,72nd), J.A. Brooks(32nd), Sami Allagui(58th,60th) and Ronny(90th) all scored for Hertha. Alexander Meier scored in 36th minute from penalty spot for Eintracht. Borussia Dortmund was one of two clubs to win on the road to start the season as they defeated FC Augsburg 4-0. Aubameyang scored three times for Dortmund in 24th, 66th and 79th minutes to pace the club. R. Lewandowski converted in the 86th minute on his penalty shot to make it 4-0.

SV Werder Bremen got a late goal from Zlatko Junuzovic to win on the road over TSV Eintracht Braunschweig 1-0. Bayer 04 Leverkusen started the season on a postive note as they defeated SC Freiburg 3-1 behind goals from Stefan Kiessling(22nd), Heung-Min Son(47th) and Sidney Sam(53rd). Mike Hanke(40th) scored the only goal for Freiburg who had a chance to get a second goal in 67th minute but J. Schmiel missed from the spot. Hannover 96 got goals from Leon Andreason(17th) and Szabolez Huszti(84th) to beat VfL Wolfsburg 2-0. Wolfsburg lost M. Arnold in 32nd minute with a direct Red Card and Timm Klose in 52nd minute when he collected his second yellow card of the night. In the lone other match TSg 1899 Hoffenheim and 1. FC Numberg played to a 2-2 draw. TSG was up 2-0 with goals from David Abraham(34th) and Anthony Modeste(52nd) but within five minutes of Modeste's goal it was leveled. Mike Frantz(54th) scored first for Numberg, he was followed by Daniel Ginczek(57th).

Sunday Action: FSV Mainz 05 3-2 VfB Stuttgart

Two matches took place on Sunday August 11th. 1. FSv Mainz 05 defeated VfB Stuttgart 3-2 behind goals from Nicolai Muller(14th, 78th) and Shinji Okazaki(65th). Stuttgart got a goal from Vedad Ibisevie early in 16th minute but had to wait until 82nd minute for next one as Martin Harnik scored. A late goal from Adam Szalai of FC Schalke 04 leveled the match at 3-3 as the home club avoided the defeat. K. Jan Huntelaar scored twice for Schalke in the second minute and 45th minute. Hamburger SV got a goal from the spot in 12th minute from R. van der Vaart to level score a 1-1. M. Beisler put them ahead with his goal in the 24th minute. Lasse Sabiech scored in 49th minute to put them back up at 3-2 before Szalai leveled the match.

It was great to have some of the biggest clubs in the World playing again and having One of the best leagues playing again. This season will have lots of ups and downs for most clubs but look for Bayern Munchen, Borussia Dortmund and Bayer 04 Leverkusen to battle for the title till the end.

Week One: What it means

So week one is in the books. What does it mean? The season is way to early for any club to think they are in jeopardy of being relegated or in position for a championship. But a good start to the new season can only be a plus in a clubs quest. The three clubs that are the favorites for the title all had good wins. Hertha had a very good start, hopefully they can keep this momentum going in the future weeks. Mainz got a good quality win over Stuttgart.

I still like Bayern Munchen to defend their title and win the league again but I can easily see Borussia Dortmund fighting them to the end. Let's see what will happen during the second weekend of the season and see how it will help or hurt clubs in their quest for a title.
