These five players will be worth watching in Germany this coming season.

The 2018-19 Bundesliga season gets underway this Friday evening when reigning champions Bayern Munich host Hoffenheim at the Allianz Arena.

Bayern won the league by 21 points last season, with Schalke second, Hoffenheim third and Borussia Dortmund fourth, ahead of Bayer Leverkusen only on goal difference.

Robert Lewandowski scored a hat-trick as Bayern beat Eintracht Frankfurt 5-0 in the German Super Cup, with Kingsley Coman and Thiago Alcantara also on target, but the league fixtures are where the real interest lies.

These five players will be ones to watch when the Bundesliga begins.

Jadon Sancho (Borussia Dortmund)

Born in 2000, former Manchester City youth player Jadon Sancho has so far been justified in his decision to move to Germany to improve his first-team chances.

He became the first English player to represent Borussia Dortmund, and also the first player born this millennium, as he made 12 league appearances last season.

In the coming season, despite being just 18, he will be able to better last season’s total of 685 league minutes he managed last year.

Exciting and fast, Sancho might begin the season on the bench, but coming on late in games to terrorize tired legs will make him an interesting player to keep an eye on.

Don’t bet against him making his senior England debut by the end of the season, with Gareth Southgate amongst those tracking his progress closely.
