Fear not, as we’ve made life simple for you with our quickfire guide to which club you should be cheering on this weekend…

Bundesliga – It’s Time To Pick Your Side

FC Koln – for the animal lover.


FC Augsburg     

Current Position: 14th

Pick them if... you love telling everyone how terrible the ‘good old days’ were in the lower leagues.


Hertha BSC      

Current Position: 13th

Pick them if… you live for the chaos and happily go along for the ride whatever life throws at you.


Union Berlin     

Current Position: 11th

Pick them if… you’re a little bit alternative and not worried who knows it.


Werder Bremen       

Current Position: 17th

Pick them if… you’re ready to live a little dangerously after years of treading water.


Borussia Dortmund      

Current Position: 2nd

Pick them if… style and swagger always trumps success for you. And you really like the colour yellow.


Fortuna Düsseldorf       

Current Position: 16th

Pick them if… you love a bit of play-off drama. As that looks as if it could be heading down the tracks.



Eintracht Frankfurt        

Current Position: 12th

Pick them if… you really can’t handle squeaky bum time at the end of a season. Anything for some peace and quiet.


SC Freiburg       

Current Position: 8th

Pick them if… “Life Is A Rollercoaster” by Ronan Keating is not just a banger on Magic for you, it’s a mantra.



1899 Hoffenheim          

Current Position: 9th

Pick them if… you suddenly feel a huge case of imposter syndrome after initially flying at work.


  1. FC Köln

Current Position: 10th

Pick them if… you’ve always secretly dreamed of owning a little paddock filled with pet goats.


RB Leipzig

Current Position: 3rd

Pick them if… you’re the gobby one of your mates that tends to rub the rest of the group up the wrong way.



Bayer Leverkusen     

Current Position: 5th

Pick them if… you always get the back-up bridesmaid or usher gig at weddings. While you’re secretly heartbroken, it’s probably the best you can hope for.



Mainz 05          

Current Position: 15th

Pick them if… you liked Jurgen Klopp before he was even a thing.



Borussia Mönchengladbach

Current Position: 4th

Pick them if… you were the Year 7 spelling bee champion at school.


Bayern Munich

Current Position: 1st

Pick them if… you like to crush your opponents like a grape, even if it gets a tad boring.


SC Paderborn

Current Position: 18th

Pick them if… your token response at the end of a Premier League season is “you always preferred the Championship anyway.”



Schalke 04

Current Position: 6th

Pick them if… you love the idea of a Premier League ‘Expendables’ franchise. David Wagner, Jonjoe Kenny, Benjamin Stambouli, Matija Nastasić for starters…


VfL Wolfsburg

Current Position: 7th

Pick them if… the only car you’d ever buy is a VW. Better to be safe than sorry.
