It will be necessary.

Because not all teams will be in top form.

That will come back very soon, little by little, but this is the first match.

We haven't played any friendlies, of course.

And I think this is very good, the five substitutes.

It will be necessary." 19.

(SOUNDBITE) (German) SCHALKE 04 COACH, DAVID WAGNER, SAYING: "Our big advantage after this break is that we are not just playing any match but we are playing the Ruhr derby (match between two clubs of the Ruhr area).

This makes it even more special.

And we focus even more.

Because this is 'the' match.

And yes, it is a pity that we'll play without spectators and especially our fans, but it is not important at the end of the day." 28.

VARIOUS OF TRAINING WITH BALL STORY: Bayern Munich coach Hansi Flick on Friday (May 15) welcomed a decision to allow five substitutions for the remainder of the season as the Bundesliga restarts on Saturday (May 16) following a suspension of more than two months.

The German league is the first major sports competition to kick off on Saturday (May 16) without spectators and with a tight set of health regulations after the forced break due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Bundesliga approved the change in substitutions on Thursday (May 14), designed to help teams cope with fixture congestion as they rush to complete the season while players still lack fitness and match practice.

Bayern, who are top of the Bundesliga on 55 points, four ahead of Borussia Dortmund, travel to Union Berlin on Sunday (May 17), with nine matchdays left in the campaign.

Borussia's coach, Lucien Favre, also hailed the decision to substitute five players.

"It will be necessary.

Because not all teams will be in top form.

That will be back very soon, little by little, but this is the first match.

We haven't played any friendlies, of course.

And I think this is very good, the five substitutes.

It will be necessary." The players, who initially spent weeks at home following the lockdown in Germany, only gradually returned to training -- initially in small groups -- before resuming team practice.

All teams have gone into a one-week training camp in complete isolation in an effort to minimise the risk of infections as the Bundesliga rushes to wrap up the season for contractual reasons by June 30.

In the Western part of Germany, Dortmund and Schalke will open the restart with a bang - the Revierderby (match between two clubs of the Ruhr area).

The rivalry between Borussia Dortmund and Schalke goes back a long way and is known as 'the mother of all derbies' in the Bundesliga.

Even though supporters are not allowed in the stadium, the clash of the two teams will make the restart of the Bundesliga even more special for all those Ruhrgebiet (Ruhr area) fans.

"Our big advantage after this break is that we are not just playing any match but we are playing the Ruhr derby," said Schalke coach David Wagner.

(match between two clubs of the Ruhr area).

"And yes, it is a pity that we'll play without spectators and especially our fans, but it is not important at the end of the day."
