Empty stadiums, distant celebrations, masked substitutes, and the sound of the ball piercing the net, that’s how European football marked its return when Bundesliga continued their campaign after a break of almost two months because of the coronavirus outbreak globally.
Although the fans weren’t behind their teams as the campaign resumed, the players ensured that they were all set and ready for the task they had been waiting for days. The intensity was at its peak on the first return day of Bundesliga and some of the teams clearly dominated their opposition and announced that they have come back to rule the world of football.
There were six games played in total on the return day of Bundesliga. Borussia Dortmund thrashed Schalke by 4-0 at home. Hertha Berlin dominated Hoffenheim and beat them by 3-0. Wolfsburg had a fierce battle with Augsburg and managed to beat them by 2-1.
Dusseldorf and Paderborn ended up playing a 0-0 draw and RB Leipzig’s winning run was also shunned by SC Freiburg as they played out a 1-1 draw. The final match of the day was between Monchengladbach and Frankfurt and the former emerged victorious by 3-1.
A lot of happening took place on the Bundesliga points table as well. Leipzig’s draw and Monchengladbach’s win saw the latter climb up the ladder and take the third spot in the table. A total of two games will be played today in the Bundesliga, the second of which will pan out between Union Berlin and Bayern Munich.

Berlin are currently on the 12th spot in the Bundesliga points table with 9 wins, 3 draws, and 13 losses in the 25 games played so far this season. Their recent form hasn’t been great as they have recorded 2 wins, losses and one draw in the last five games that they have played.
