Bayern Munich Annihilate Schalke

Bayern Munich opened the Bundesliga campaign against Schalke with a banger, showing that they’re here to stay. The reigning champions humiliated their opponents 8-0, showing no signs of stopping in a lopsided Bundesliga betting match.

Sergio Aguero is Out for Premier League Opening Games
Pep Guardiola announced that Argentinian star player, Sergio Aguero, could miss the first two months of the Premier League season. Aguero suffered a severe knee injury in June and is still recovering.

However, the striker hasn’t had any practices with the team yet. They’re focusing on his recovery and getting his fitness levels back up. Guardiola also stated that Aguero isn’t the type of player that can quickly regain his physical condition.

He reckons that Aguero will only be ready to join on the field in a month or two. That means he’ll miss the matches against Leicester and Arsenal. He could quite possibly miss the home game against Liverpool too.

Manchester City will play their opening EPL game against the Wolves on Monday, September 21.

Australia’s head coach, Dave Rennie, announced that Geoff Parling would be joining the Wallabies as the forwards coach for the upcoming season. He’s already been coaching a regional side Down-Under, where he’s been assisting the Melbourne Rebels for the past three years.
