The Bundesliga is returning to action after a lengthy coronavirus-induced layoff, and the marquee matchup of the weekend features storied rivals Borussia Dortmund and Schalke.
The Revierderby foes meet at an empty Signal Iduna Stadium, where the empty atmosphere will make for an odd backdrop for one of Europe’s most fierce matchups.
Two Americans will be featuring in Saturday’s edition, with Schalke’s Weston McKennie and Dortmund’s Gio Reyna both starting. For Reyna, it’s his first start in official competition for Dortmund’s first team.
Schalke enters the resumption of the league in sixth place, while Dortmund is still very much in the title race, trailing first-place Bayern Munich by four points.
