Germany Championship is restarting this weekend

First of all it is worth paying attention to the confrontation between Dortmund “Borussia” and “Schalke”: this derby is promising to be hot even with no spectators present. Host team is still trying to catch the leading “Bavaria”, and guests are trying to land in the euro cup zone.

“Freiburg” even at the guest game can win points from “Leipzig”, who started to play draw often in latest tours. Other leaders will have to match with the teams from the lower grid - even not at home, but defeats are hardly possible.

It is also worth seeing the match between “Fortuna” and “Paderborn” - as soon as loser wil worthen the chances not to go off to second Bundesliga.
You can always rely on German efficiency to get sport back in the current climate and boy are we glad to see top-flight European Football back in action as the Bundesliga returns this weekend.

Sure, there’s empty stadiums and subs wearing face masks and yes, it’s going to look and feel little different than usual but we’ll happily take it. 

Tonight’s clash (11:30 pm AEST) between Hoffenheim and Hertha is set to be a fascinating encounter.

Both sides were struggling for form before the season was suspended, so they will both be hoping the COVID19 enforced hiatus of the Bundesliga was a blessing in disguise as they look to make a fresh start towards the back end of their respective 2019-20 campaigns.

For Hoffenheim, it’s still mathematically possible to qualify for Europe.

They go into this match without a win in their past five games and this will also be their first home game since they conceded six goals against league leader Bayern Munich, but a lot has changed in Football and the world since then.

Hoffenheim have had plenty of time to at least think about how they can improve from it.
