The Bundesliga is (almost) back, so let's take a look at each of the 18 clubs.
The new 2. Bundesliga season is just around the corner, but Werder Bremen have yet to really address their squad's shortcomings. Their inertia could prove to be costly.
Leroy Sané's sophomore campaign at Bayern is shaping up to be the most important of his career. The pressure is on and another mediocre season won't be tolerated.
Once a vibrant, conspicuous member of the Bundesliga, MSV Duisburg are now teetering on the verge of irrelevance. Their demise has been nothing short of tragic.
Wuppertaler SV are relative minnows in the grand scheme of European football, but back in the 1970s, they embarked on a Bundesliga adventure that went down in history.
SSV Ulm is both a sleeping giant and a provincial minnow. The club is proof that you can make headlines even if success eludes you.
The Bundesliga has a proper title race again, but there's more at stake than just a championship: the league's integrity.
Few clubs have endured as tragic a fall from grace as Kaiserslautern. The club went from the top of the world to insolvency in the blink of an eye.
The cities of Mainz and Wiesbaden are only separated by a few hundred meters, but on the football pitch, the two are worlds apart.
After a decade spent laboring in the fourth tier, former German champions Rot-Weiss Essen are finally a club on the up again.
