Bundesliga live stream TODAY: TV channel and how to watch Bayern Munich in packed Saturday schedule

BAYERN MUNICH are looking to extend their lead at the top of the table to 10 points as the Bundesliga continues today.

Following the suspension of all major football leagues due to the global coronavirus pandemic, Germany's top flight has returned to bring some lockdown respite for footy fans - albeit behind closed doors.

But how can you watch it from the safety of your sofa? We've got you covered...

When did the Bundesliga restart?

Germany's top-flight returned on Saturday May 16, as the teams started to play their final nine fixtures of the season.

However, the Bundesliga title race looks to be all but over after Bayern Munich won at Borussia Dortmund in midweek.

Chancellor Angela Merkel gave the green light for the Bundesliga - which last played on March 8 - to restart earlier than the rest of Europe.

The clubs had been training since mid-April in groups.

UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin welcomed German football's imminent return hailing it as a turning point.

Ceferin said: "It is great news that the German authorities have agreed that the Bundesliga can return.

"This is a huge and positive step to bringing optimism back to people’s lives."

The Bundesliga 2 also returned at the weekend.

What Bundesliga fixtures are next up?

Last night Bayer Leverkuson beat Freiberg 1-0 as Kai Havertz became the first Bundesliga player to reach 35 goals before turning 21.

And there's a full weekend schedule in store with Bayern Munich playing on Saturday before Dortmund are in action on Sunday.

All times are 2.30pm UK kick-offs unless stated
