Bayern Munich's 2019-20 Bundesliga fixtures in full

Bayern Munich will start the defence of their Bundesliga title at home to Hertha Berlin, while they face Borussia Dortmund on matchdays 11 and 28.

After a difficult start to his Bayern tenure, Niko Kovac heads into his second season at Allianz Arena having led the club to a domestic double in 2018-19.

After taking on Dortmund in the DFL-Supercup on August 3, Bayern face lower-league side Energie Cottbus in the DFB-Pokal before kicking off the Bundesliga season with a home clash against Hertha, who finished 11th last term and are now under the tutelage of Ante Covic.

Dortmund led the way for much of the Bundesliga campaign, only to be overtaken in the end by Bayern, and Lucien Favre's side visit Munich in the first Der Klassiker of the season in November, with the return fixture scheduled for early April - a clash that could well prove pivotal in the title race.
