After the pause for the played and cancelled friendly matches of the German national football team, the First and Second Bundesliga return this weekend with the matches of round 13. The FC Bayern Munich will play the evening match on Saturday at 6:30pm in Gelsenkirchen against Schalke 04. The HSV and Borussia Dortmund will kick off round 13 tomorrow, Friday, November 20.
The HSV wrote on their official website:
"The Dortmund match will take place as scheduled, despite recent events. Right now, in these difficult times, we are unbroken in following our destiny and with each new game we will bring thousands of people together, so they can share their enthusiasm, joy and passion for football. This is our contribution to a peaceful world."
Other clubs are also trying to make everything seem like business as usual, but security measures across the 9 stadiums will be stepped up. Football-Germany, as the rest of society, is still in a state of shock following the Paris terrorist attacks and the cancelled friendly against the Netherlands in Hannover this Tuesday. Everyone hopes for the weekend to pass in an atmosphere of solidarity and strength.
