Taking the first step towards normalcy in sports, Bundesliga is the first of Europe's elite football leagues to resume official competition for its 2019-20 season since the world was disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Even though the matches are to be played behind closed doors, for football fans this return to LIVE sporting action shines as a positive ray of hope. After a hiatus of 2 months, Star Sports, India’s leading sports broadcaster, will show exclusive LIVE action of the Bundesliga, on Star Sports Select 1/HD & Star Sports Select 2/HD starting 16th May.

The league has another 9 game weeks to go and all the football fans can rejoice at having the chance to watch one of the most exciting leagues this season.

A slow start to the season by current leaders and traditional powerhouse Bayern Munich saw them in an unfamiliar 4th position before Hans-Dieter Flick was handed over the reins of the team.

With a fresh dose of energy and a new approach, Bayern Munich turned things around quickly registering no losses in their last 10 games which saw them move to the top of the table. In hot pursuit of the leaders, sitting just 4 points back are Borussia Dortmundt who are scheduled to play against rivals FC Schalke on Saturday, May 16, 2020 in the ‘Revierderby’.

RB Leipzig who are just 4 points adrift off Bayern and 1 off Dortmund round off the top 3 in one of the closest seasons in a really long time. The top 5 teams are separated by only 9 points and the title race could see some interesting ebbs and flows to keep the interest alive in the coming weeks. In football crazy Germany, keeping in adherence with social distancing norms, Matchday 26 will see Bundesliga being played in empty stadiums without fans as the clubs return to competitive play after a forced 2-month hiatus.
