How to watch the Bundesliga: stream each match online today


The beautiful game is back today as the German Bundesliga restarts its 2019/20 season and offers a glimmer of hope to football fans around the world. Like almost all world sports, the league ended in March due to the Covid-19 pandemic, but top European football is back on the cards with fantastic matches scheduled for Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Ready to kick off? Here’s how to watch each game today – on TV or using a reliable live Bundesliga live stream today.

Bundesliga fact sheet

The German Bundesliga resumed on Saturday May 16 with matches taking place behind closed doors – or without supporters. Fox Sports has the rights of the Bundesliga in the United States, which means that anyone without cable can watch while enjoying a One week free Hulu + Live TV offer.

Below is a full list of Bundesliga games, with Saturday afternoon’s games offering a considerable amount of action and goals – especially in the much-anticipated Dortmund game against Schalke.

Dortmund have serious aspirations to lift the Salatschüssel, while Schalke hopes that a solid end to the season could propel them into European football in the next campaign.

British football fans will be particularly interested in the rising star of the Dortmund Three Lions, Jadon Sancho, who is part of a fierce Dortmund attack that also includes the Norwegian prodigy Erling Braut Haaland, the German international Mario Götze and the brother Eden Hazard’s youngest, Thorgan. Who makes the Dortmund from IX each is a guess, when you have that kind of talent!

American football fans also have many reasons to want to connect with the Bundesliga, with promising youngsters like Josh Sargent (Werder Bremen) and Weston McKennie (Schalke) working in the Bundesliga this season alongside veterans of the USMNT John Brooks (Wolfsburg) and Fabian Johnson (Borussia Mönchengladbach)

With that in mind, here is the full schedule of German football for this weekend, followed by the live broadcast of the Bundesliga on TV and watching online matches from anywhere in the world.
