Football in Germany

Post by Poshay » 15 May 2020, 10:02

Tomorrow afternoon three Bundesliege games will be televised on BT Sport. The matches are Borussia Dortmnund v Schalke on BTS1, Leipzig v Freiburg on BTS2 and Hoffenheim v Hertha Berlin on 3. These will be the first "live" matches for 2 months. Will anybody be interested in watching these games between strange teams packed with foreign players in eerily quiet stadiums? These games may be attractive to football fans starved of live action these past two months and after all we are well used to watching Premiership matches similarly constituted. :question:

I won't be interested. But I'd guess that a few German fans will be.
And I'll definitely be watching Rugby League in Australia "in eerily quiet stadiums" when it starts in a couple of weeks.

I dipped into the Dortmund-Schalke game this afternoon. From the football purist the game wasn't too bad apart from the poor performance of the Schalke goalie on his debut but there was none of the usual atmosphere, just a few shouts echoing around the stadium.

I had the pleasure of missing it

I don’t even watch English football apart from Posh, I occasionally catch odd bits of games, but mainly have no interest in other football apart from England internationals
