Bundesliga is back and running. The league was halted because of the Global coronavirus crisis and was suspended since March 13. But it is back with a bang as the league resume from Round 26.
As no football is happening worldwide people are all looking towards some good football action from the German league as people are all searching for Bundesliga live score.
And what a way to start it. On the resumption day Borussia Dortmund are scheduled to face off Schalke 04 in Revierderby match at Dortmund’s home ground Signal Iduna Park.
The Bundesliga is the very first major European league to resume while talks are going on if resumption of Premier League, La Liga and Serie A.
The opening day fixture doesn’t have the league table leader FC Bayern Munchen in action as they are scheduled for a match on Sunday.
Borussia Dortmund are just four points behind FC Bayern and will be hoping to rope in all the 3 points against Schalke 04, and they will have to do it without their huge fan base.
Dortmund team is already out of Champions League when they lost to France’s champion Paris Saint-German in the round of 16 with a scoreline of 2-0 and will be hoping to give their best to win the Bundesliga.
The start of the season was not the best for the yellow army but after they signed Erling Haaland, the teams performance increased and climbed back upto 2nd place when the league was suspended.
Borussia Dortmund lead by Lucien Favre, won their last four matches against Eintracht Frankfurt, Werder Bremen, Freiburg and Borussia Monchengladbach.
As Bayern is not in action the opening day, Borussia Dortmund has the opportunity to close gap to 1 point to FC Bayern Munchen in the league table.
Meanwhile, Schalke 04 have not registered a single win since January 17. They last played a draw against Hoffenheim on May 7. Probably it is the time for Schalke 04 to end the winless record and register a win in the derby.
Schalke 04 are currently placed in sixth position and a European competition qualification is possible. They are ahead of Augsburg by just 1 point and they are also scheduled to play a match on Saturday.
