The German Bundesliga Ushers in the Return of Top European FootballPublished May 13, 2020 by Florin P
The Deutsche Fussball Liga brings back quality football, as the German first and second divisions return on Saturday, May16.
The most anticipated moment for millions of sports betting fans from around the world is just around the corner. European football has been in recess for nearly 2 months, but things are about to take a turn for the better. The German Bundesliga will return this weekend, with the first matches scheduled for May 16. Not only the first division, but also the lower league has games planned for Saturday and Sunday, so there’s a lot of enthusiasm among those who enjoy top-quality football.
The Deutsche Fussball Liga made this decision in early May, after it was determined that the nation has passed the first phase of the pandemic. There will be plenty of security measures in place to make sure that people enjoy the games without exposing themselves to unnecessary risks. For football fans, this is an important milestone, as the German first division could serve as an example for other European leagues. For the time being, action is still suspended across the continent and there are no clear deadlines.
An Exceptional Weekend for Football Fans
There won’t be any matches scheduled for Friday evening, but action will resume the very next day in both the Bundesliga and 2. Bundesliga. The first and second German divisions will conclude at the end of June, on the 27th, so there will be plenty of matches scheduled over the next six weeks. Bayern Munich try to defend their trophy as they return into the spotlight with a match against Union Berlin. Dortmund will play FC Schalke 04 in another highly anticipated match, while RB Leipzig play against Freiburg.
Punters can already bet on these matches at most of the important bookmakers and German fans have the chance to watch them from the stands. This is an important experiment, but if things go according to the plan, the success of German football will inspire others. For the first time since mid-March, there are good reasons to be optimistic about the return of European football.
