The new Bundesliga season begins in a week’s time, and the big question remains what it’s been for most of this decade- is anybody capable of stopping the Bayern Munich juggernaut?
The Bavarian giants won their 26th Bundesliga title in 2016/17, thus becoming the first German side to win five domestic titles in a row. While the rest of the spots for the Champions League and Europa League were tightly contested, Bayern won the title at a canter- they finished a good 15 points ahead of surprise packages Leipzig, who managed to get an automatic spot in the Champions League in their first season after promotion.

There will be some major kit changes in the Bundesliga for 2018/19, with Schalke leaving Adidas for Umbro, Borussia Monchengladbach parting ways with Kappa and joining hands with Puma and Koln expected to ink a deal with Uhlsport, but here is a look at the clubs and their kit makers for 17/18.
