German football is ready to resume behind closed doors following a two-month shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Dortmund remain in the title race but can’t afford any slip-ups as they sit four points adrift of Bayern Munich.

Keep an eye on the bright-spark trio of Erling Haaland, Jadon Sancho and Giovanni Reyna who have earned their right to be viewed as the most exciting talents in European football in 2020.

Dortmund v Schalke prediction

This may be the toughest prediction of the year. Who knows how players will react to the restart? It’s a derby game without a crowd, an end-of-season run-in clash from a standing start. Both sides will be pleased to come through it without any injuries, but Dortmund’s spritely forwards will be chomping at the bit to find their rhythm again.


Prediction: Dortmund 1-0 Schalke
