Bayern Munich, Bayer Leverkusen, Borussia Dortmund, Eintracht Frankfurt, and RB Leipzig - these are the five Bundesliga teams participating in the 2022/23 UEFA Champions League. Here are the team's matches scheduled for Matchday 1:
• Inter Milan vs Bayern Munich (Group C)
• Bayer Leverkusen vs Atletico Madrid (Group B)
• Borussia Dortmund vs Copenhagen (Group G)
• Eintracht Frankfurt vs Sporting Lisbon (Group D)
• RB Leipzig vs Shakhtar Donetsk (Group F)
Inter Milan vs Bayern Munich (Group C)
Bayern Munich is in a strong position in the Bundesliga going into its Champions League tussle with Italian heavyweights Inter. The Bavarian giants have won three and drawn two in their first five Bundesliga matches, and are favorites to top Group C.
Club Brugge vs Bayer Leverkusen (Group B)
Bayer Leverkusen will be worried ahead of its face-off against Belgium's Club Brugge as the club has struggled so far in its Bundesliga campaign. After five games, Bayer has a dismal record of only one win and four losses. The club is currently sitting in 14th position in the Bundesliga table.
Borussia Dortmund vs Copenhagen (Group G)
Borussia Dortmund will be confident of getting a result at home against Denmark's FC Copenhagen. Dortmund has been setting the pace in the Bundesliga and is in imperious form, having recorded four wins and one loss in their five games so far.
Eintracht Frankfurt vs Sporting Lisbon (Group D)
Eintracht Frankfurt's place in the Champions League has been a result of its Europa League triumph last year. However, the Europa League champions aren't expected to go far in Europe's elite club competition. The club's Bundesliga start has been slow as well, and it currently sits at 10th place in the Bundesliga table.
RB Leipzig vs Shakhtar Donetsk (Group F)
Leipzig, similar to Frankfurt, has so far endured a difficult start to the new season. It has only managed to win one game in the Bundesliga so far and sits uncomfortably in 11th place, just behind Frankfurt.
