Bundesliga: livestreams, fixtures and kick off times in India

Berlin derby kicks the weekend's action off as German league continues after coronavirus shutdown.

By Rahul Venkat ·

After the Bundesliga resumed last weekend with a Ruhr derby between Borussia Dortmund and Schalke, attention now turns to the German capital as Hertha Berlin play host to cross-town rivals Union on Friday.

Meanwhile league leaders Bayern Munich - chasing an eighth successive Bundesliga title - take on an out-of-form Eintracht Frankfurt side on Saturday.

Some hope for travelling Eintracht: they beat the German giants 5-1 last time they met last November.

Second-placed Borussia Dortmund will be looking to keep the pressure on Bayern as they go to sixth-placed Wolfsburg.

Erling Haaland celebrates scoring first goal on Bundesliga return

With Norwegian teenager Erling Braut Haaland leading the line, Dortmund have been in sparkling form - winning their last five league games in a row.

Lying four points behind Bayern, the two sides will meet next Tuesday at Signal Iduna Park.

Another intriguing encounter on Matchday 27 sees Borussia Monchengladbach - who moved into third place last week - face a Bayer Leverkusen side lying in fifth position.

Although the game will be played behind closed doors, Monchengladbach have installed around 12,000 cardboard cut out models of fans to fill their stadium.

Supporters paid around $20 (1500 INR) in order to have a version of themselves present at Borussia Park, with the money raised being donated to local charities.
