All eyes are on the Bundesliga this weekend - with fans around the world finally able to tune in to live top flight football. Although the games will be played out in eerie empty stadiums, and in some cases in front of a cardboard cut-out crowd, players and fans alike will breath a huge sigh of relief as competitive action finally resumes.


In this special episode, Stevie sits down with broadcaster Ian Joy to get the lowdown on what to look out for in Germany this weekend.


With Bayern Munich looking like runaway leaders before lockdown, has the unexpected break handed a lifeline to other teams with eyes on the title?


Ian breaks down the factors behind Alphonso Davies' surprising rise within the Bayern ranks, and how injuries gave him an opportunity in an unfamiliar position.


With Dortmund v. Schalke the weekend's stand out fixture, Joy gives us a primer in what to watch out for in the game, as well as highlighting exciting lesser-known Bundesliga players.


Stevie and Ian discuss the North American talents currently playing with German sides and respond to claims in the media by Weston McKennie that he's ready for the EPL.
