THE Bundesliga is back and Wolfsburg are looking to fly out the traps after last season's admirable sixth-place finish.
After ending the campaign with five a fine run of home form – five wins and two draws including an 8-1 final-day shellacking of Augsburg – they can start in style this afternoon.
The visitors are newly-promoted Cologne who will be happy just to avoid the drop this season and I'm backing the Wolves at 19-20 with bet365.
Double it with Villarreal to win their La Liga opener at home to another promoted side, Granada.
Last season's 14th-placed finish was a huge disappointment by Villarreal's usual high standards – they hadn't ended lower than sixth since returning to the top flight in 2012.
Granada were runners-up in the second tier last term but face a daunting start and Villarreal can be backed at 4-6 with BetVictor.
