Hitzfeld sees two-horse race
Former Bayern Munich boss Ottmar Hitzfeld believes Borussia Dortmund will be the Bavarians' biggest rivals in the upcoming campaign.
Bayern are desperate to win back the title this season having played second fiddle to Dortmund for the past two campaigns.
They began last season in tremendous form only to suffer a dip and see BVB pull away to land the spoils.
Hitzfeld feels the big two German clubs will, once again, be the sides to catch at the top of the table and believes the capture of Marco Reus could be significant.
"The race for the Bundesliga title will go between Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund again. These two teams have the most potential and have very strong teams," he told Sky Sports. "Dortmund's squad has not changed much. They brought in Reus for Shinji Kagawa, and Lucas Barrios left the club.
"I believe that the signing of Reus was a great deal, though. And that is one of the reasons why Dortmund will make life difficult for Bayern once more this season."
