Of course it's weird without a crowd, but I'm slowly getting used to it. 

But great to see live football again!

Erling Haaland, what a phenom! 

I'm looking forward to seeing other Bundesliga stars like Kai Havertz and Timo Werner.

I'm also intrigued by Union Berlin and their attritional style of football.

Haaland is English 'n' all.

Yeah and if only he'd chosen us! Hopefully Greenwood can develop to world class status.

Haaland looks a quality footballer, involved in Dortmund first three goals

We were linked with him at Leeds, probably because his dad played for us, too good for the championship

Not sure he's even 20 yet. Some talent certainly.

Nope, he's 19, and has 41 goals in all comps this season, including 10 in the German Bundesliga at about a goal per hour played, and 10 in the Champs League. 

With Messi and C Ronaldo getting on a bit now, we have Haaland and Mbappe as the new superstars coming through, but with more of a (Brazilian) Ronaldo style; fast, powerful and lethal. They're technically good but can play on the shoulder and punish defences.

Great to see live football back on our screens again. Really enjoyed the Dortmund game and will watch Bayern tomorrow. Good to see it returning without all the petty squabbling and self interest in this country.

Would have been brilliant if all of a sudden someone starting loudly chanting "shit ground, no fans".

TBH any s*gs watching wouldn't have noticed any difference to one of their home games - less tents I suppose though.

I am wondering if we might get a "please accept our apologies if you heard any offensive language, picked up by our socially distanced microphones".

Hamburg are my team (family from there). They conceded a last minute equaliser to scupper their promotion hopes. Just like watching City...

Maybe people could put the details of the upcoming games.

It would be dead handy for someone like me who gets confused with finding the correct stations and times etc........

Im completely ignorant to whats happening RE: Football as Ive had more serious stuff to deal with 😢, maybe just the kick off time and TV station.

eg:-Team A V Team B 7pm ITV 4.

Thanks

Pretty sure they're all BT Sport? Just varies whether which channel of theirs, if you have Sky you can add BT Sport monthly pass for £25 a month. And BBC's fixture list should provide a list of all fixtures.

Training match for Bayern this.

Yeah Union were good for 15 minutes then completely outplayed for the rest of the match. 

Havertz on show tomorrow night. I missed Marcus Thuram (son of Lilian) at BMg. He's supposed be really good.

Having watched Leverkusen twice this week, I'm starting to think he'd be better for Liverpool than Timo Werner. 

Havertz just has a touch of class that is fitting for the current crop of scousers. He's also a threat in the air, which Liverpool don't currently have in forward areas. He could push Firmino for that central role.

In other news, La Liga back in a couple of weeks.

One plus of this coverage is the delectable Lynsey Hipgrave in the studio.

Must admit you wouldn't kick her out from under the duvet for breaking copious amounts of wind.

What to me was noticeable for week two of Bundesliga is that the intensity seemed to have gone up a notch. Call it match fitness, call it getting used to the surroundings but the level just seemed that bit higher.

Looking forward to Der Klassiker on Tuesday, question over whether Dortmund recall Sancho or leave in Brandt, would have to think they'd recall Sancho. His assist for Dortmund's second was excellent

I think the Bayern back line is vulnerable to a pacy counter attack. They played a high line v Frankfurt and looked open at times. A better team could punish them and the pace of Sancho and Haaland will really disrupt that defence. 

In attacking areas Bayern looked really up for it though and great work rate all over.

Do we think 3 horse race now- I think Borussia Monchengladbach out of it after today, if Leipzig win 4? 3 or 4?

Leipzig have pretty favourable fixtures upcoming although still play Dortmund at home in penultimate game. That game could be vital in where the title goes.

Dortmund are the only team good enough to catch Bayern though and I don't see it happening. Might change my mind on Tuesday though!

Guten Tag!

5:30 kick off for Der Klassiker!!

Bayern has brought Gnabry back in to the starting line up. Sancho, Can, Gotze and Reyna all on the bench for Dortmund. 

Bayern can all but win the title with a win.

Halo! 

Dortmund shirt on, currently unbeaten since I starting supporting them 2 weeks ago. Hoping for a win to put us 1 point behind Bayern.

For me thats a penalty for handball, intentionally or not his movement and the ball coming off his arm has pushed it wide of the goal

Rules must be different in Germany, in the EPL that's a pen all day, not that I'd expect them to be consistent!

Good Klassiker (?) that. Loved the Bundesliga so far. Now hoping for Leverkusen to win me a tenner.

German football showing there's unlikely to be any home advantage when football resumes here behind closed doors, interesting how it could influence the table.

That's on you.

Great performances by Wolfsburg and Frankfurt. Bremen/BMG was a honking great turd. More tomorrow night including Koln away to Hoffenheim, Leipzig squashing Hertha, Schalke in a trap game away to Dussledorf, Augsburg vs Paderborn and Union Berlin vs Mainz. All on BT.
