We wanted the five big questions that fans will be asking themselves ahead of the big kick-off.
First up it is the turn of the Bundesliga, which last season supplied the two Champions League finalists and over the summer has seen its profile rise ever higher with a rather notable coaching appointment...
1. Will Bayern Munich keep on winning?
Yes, it looks very much like it, but if there is a team that can stop Bayern it's Borussia Dortmund. We all hope that it's not going to become a boring season after Bayern's success in winning the treble last season.
2. How strong are Borussia Dortmund?
Maybe as strong as last season. They have lost Mario Goetze to Bayern but have signed Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrik Mkhitaryan instead and - importantly - still have Robert Lewandowski. If Bayern struggle, Dortmund can make it happen. So the overall question is how close Bayern can get to their remarkable performance in 2012/2013 which saw the following records fall:
Most points at the end of a season: 91
Most wins in a single season: 29
Fewest defeats in a single season: 1
Biggest margin of victory: 25 points
Fewest goals against in a single season: 18
Most clean sheets in a single season: 21
Most consecutive victories at start of season: 8
Fastest time to clinch the title: 28 games
Top of the table: 34 matchdays
3. Robert Lewandowski: Reluctant striker or goal-getter?
Dortmund's general manager, Hans-Joachim Watzke, has insisted striker Lewandowski will not be moving abroad this summer, having already ruled out a move to their chief domestic rival Bayern Munich. Lewandowski's view is professional: he remains focused on his job and maybe he will perform like last season (24 goals and seven assists in 31 Bundesliga matches; 10 goals and two assists in 13 Champions League matches).
4. Will Braunschweig become a second Greuther Fuerth?
After 28 years Eintracht Braunschweig were promoted to the Bundesliga again - but this time it came as a big surprise. It will be hard for them to avoid relegation. Last season we had Greuther Fuerth in the same situation but they only managed to get 21 points in 34 Bundesliga matches - and didn't win at home in 17 matches. But we expect Braunschweig to be stronger (last season: 17 home matches with 10 wins and 6 draws). At the end, this could make the difference.
5. Can Pep Guardiola coach a team that isn't Barcelona?
Bayern signed probably the world's best coach this summer and now Pep Guardiola has to deal with another great team. It will be interesting to see how they cope with each other. Of course, president Uli Hoeness and boss Karl-Heinz Rummenigge will observe everything in detail.
The pressure is high, especially after Bayern's treble last season. Bayern officials said they want the Bundesliga title - no more than this. But Guardiola is surely going to succeed and show everyone in the world that he can win titles outside of Catalunya. We won't experience a second Juergen Klinsmann, who started with similar expectations in July 2008 and had to leave the club with no title in April 2009.
