home Sports With Borussia’s goal against Schalke, Bundesliga returns
Germany.- The Bundesliga resumed its 2019/20 season with the five-match dispute that kicked off date 26, where Borussia Dortmund’s hard-hitting victory over FC Schalke 04 was highlighted 4-0. A day that was played behind closed doors and with strict hygiene measures to prevent the contagion of COVID-19 but with great incentives in sports.
Dortmund-Schalke, known as the ‘Derby of the Ruhr’, was arguably the most attractive duel of the sixteenth day. The Negriamarillos ravaged their top rival on the turf, prevailing with goals Erling Haaland – he has 10 goals in nine games –Thorgan Hazard and two by Raphael Guerreiro. A victory that put pressure on FC Bayern Munich leader – playing on Sunday against Union Berlin – and drove him away from RB Leipzig, which surprisingly drew 1–1 against SC Freiburg.
It was an atypical edition of the Revierderby because they played for the first time without the deafening capacity of Signal Iduna Park, a stadium that has an average attendance of 81,154 spectators per game.
