Bundesliga Matchday 1 Betting Tips – 1.FC Köln

This could be a much more challenging season for manager Steffen Baumgart and Köln has already been knocked out of the DFB-Pokal in the 1st Round.

The club has been quite active during the off-season as it tries to gather a large enough squad to cope with the added rigours of midweek European matches. Marvin Schwäbe should be the no.1 choice between the posts although Timo Horn started the last match. Timo Hübers and Luca Kilian will form the central-defensive pairing with skipper Jonas Hector as the left-back and Benno Schmitz on the right-side of the backline.

Salih Özcan left the club in the transfer-window therefore Ellyes Skhiri will be the anchorman in the centre of the park with Florian Kainz and Dejan Ljubicic being the other central-midfielders on either side. Mark Uth will operate in a no.10 role while the new signing Sargis Adamyan will possibly link up with Anthony Modeste in the centre-forward partnership.

Bundesliga Matchday 1 Betting Tips – FC Schalke 04

Schalke had appointed Frank Kramer as its new manager at the start of the season who was relegated from the Bundesliga with Arminia Bielefeld last season.

The club has brought in a large number of players over the summer in order to bolster the squad for its battle to stay in the top-flight. Alexander Schwolow is one of the new arrivals and is slated to be the first-choice keeper of the side. Maya Yoshida and Marcin Kaminski will be the centre-back partnership while Cédric Brunner and Thomas Ouwejan are likely to take the full-back positions.

Another fresh arrival, Alex Kral, is going to take up a defensive-midfield role with Tom Krauß and Rodrigo Zalazar playing just in front of him in the centre of the park. Dominik Drexler is one of the few remaining survivors from the previous team and he will start on the right-wing with Tobias Mohr on the left and Sebastian Polter joining the club in the summer to be the main centre-forward of the team.
