Bayern Munich's path to a ninth-straight domestic title begins at home to Schalke, as the Bundesliga schedule is out for the 2020-21 season.
A first point won this season was at least some relief, and out of step with what we’ve come to expect from Schalke. When you’ve gone 20 straight Bundesliga games without a win, the host of cameras around the stadium tend to focus in that bit more tightly on dropped heads and anguished faces, ready for the mournful musical montage later.
Players are returning to the Bundesliga from international duty, and they are bringing the coronavirus with them. Hoffenheim played Borussia Dortmund on Saturday without Andrej Kramaric and Kasim Adams after they tested positive following national team matches with Croatia and Ghana, respectively. Czech Republic defender Pavel Kaderabek was in quarantine because of a family member’s result.
