Robert Lewandowski-the striker who scored 34 goals last season-when champion Bayern Munich welcomes Schalke into the Allianz Arena to start the 2020/21 season.
Bayern won their 30th top league title last season and will continue to maintain their dominance in German football this season as well, while Schalke will be determined to improve in the disappointing 2019-20 season. Less than a month ago, Bayern Munich won the treble, but football is waiting for no team. The achievements of last season allowed the Bundesliga champions to prepare for the opener.

Bundesliga form (2019-20)
Munich form: W-W-W-W-W-W
Schalke form: L-D-D-L-L-L
Possible Lineups: Bayern Munich vs Schalke
Bayern Munich:Neuer; Pavard, Sule, Alaba, Davies; Kimmich, Goretzka; Gnabry, Muller, Sane; Lewandowski
Schalke: Fahrmann; Rudy, Kabak, Nastasic, Oczipka; Serdar, Stambouli, Bentaleb; Harit, Uth, Ibisevic
It is still early, but Bayern Munich this season feels weaker than the previous one. Although the core of the team is basically intact, after Thiago Alcantara joined Liverpool, Hansi Flick lost one of the best midfielders in the world.
Schalke: At the same time, Schalke will not have Salif Sane due to a knee injury, but the visitors will have a perfectly suitable line-up for the Munich game.
