Wolfsburg had to play the match against the third best team in Bundesliga 2 to avoid relegation. They had a terrible season and after that decided to renovate the team completely - they sold Rodriguez, Luiz Gustavo and returned Borja Mayoral to Real Madrid. Among others, they bought Brooks from Hertha and Ignacio Camacho from Malaga, but it seems they won't be able to fight for the place in the European competitions.

Borussia Dortmund starts the season with the highest ambitions again. However, Bayern Munich won the last five Bundesliga editions, and it is hard to tell if Dortmund is stronger than they were in the previous season when they finished 3rd in the league.
