After Germany's humbling in the World Cup, the Bundesliga begins on Friday with lots of question marks.
The Bundesliga kicked off with a bang as Borussia Dortmund took advantage of Bayern's slipup on opening night. There was also a baptism of fire for Union Berlin as they hosted Bundesliga football for the first time.
Bayern Munich's title defense wasn't meant to begin with a score draw at home to Hertha Berlin. The performance of Niko Kovac's side might leave Borussia Dortmund feeling very optimistic about their chances this season.
Bayern Munich's title hopes have been boosted by the capture of Philippe Coutinho on a loan deal from Barcelona. The playmaker takes over the No.10 jersey previously worn by Bayern legend Arjen Robben.
The confidence surrounding Borussia Dortmund proved well-placed as the Black and Yellows blew Augsburg away. But, on a day of novelties in Dortmund, more changes are necessary.
