Excited about the return of the Bundesliga season, but never really dabbled in German football before?
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
Current Position: 14th
Pick them if... you love telling everyone how terrible the ‘good old days’ were in the lower leagues.
Current Position: 13th
Pick them if… you live for the chaos and happily go along for the ride whatever life throws at you.
Current Position: 11th
Pick them if… you’re a little bit alternative and not worried who knows it.
Current Position: 17th
Pick them if… you’re ready to live a little dangerously after years of treading water.
Current Position: 2nd
Pick them if… style and swagger always trumps success for you. And you really like the colour yellow.
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.
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.
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.
Current Position: 9th
Pick them if… you suddenly feel a huge case of imposter syndrome after initially flying at work.
Current Position: 10th
Pick them if… you’ve always secretly dreamed of owning a little paddock filled with pet goats.
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.
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.
Current Position: 15th
Pick them if… you liked Jurgen Klopp before he was even a thing.
Current Position: 4th
Pick them if… you were the Year 7 spelling bee champion at school.
Current Position: 1st
Pick them if… you like to crush your opponents like a grape, even if it gets a tad boring.
Current Position: 18th
Pick them if… your token response at the end of a Premier League season is “you always preferred the Championship anyway.”
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…
Current Position: 7th
Pick them if… the only car you’d ever buy is a VW. Better to be safe than sorry.
