The Bundesliga is back and while it may not be football as we knew it before the COVID-19 pandemic, last weekend’s action was – perhaps somewhat surprisingly when you consider the long, enforced break – played to a high standard and an impressive pace.
Borussia Dortmund were at their scintillating best as they swept aside Schalke 04 in the Revierderby with a 4-0 win, which featured two stunning finishes from left wing-back Raphaël Guerreiro, while Bayer Leverkusen wonderkid Kai Havertz scored 33.33% of his career headed goals in 33 first-half minutes in a 4-1 thrashing of Werder Bremen.
Bayern Munich barely got into second gear in a 2-0 win against an uninspired Union Berlin side and Julian Nagelsmann’s RB Leipzig were held to a frustrating 1-1 draw with Freiburg, despite pummelling their opponents in the expected goals (xG) stakes by 2.15 to 0.67.
The majority of teams now have eight games remaining in the current campaign and we all love a quiz, so we decided to dive into the Twenty3 Content Toolbox to find eight questions on the 2019/20 season so far.
They’re stats-based, so we’ll forgive you if you don’t get full marks.
Let’s see how you get on.
