Start of Bundesliga Date – 16th May 2020 – Best Odds & Fixtures
May 16 start of Bundesliga date; winner's odds and fixtures.
The start of Bundesliga is all set and kick off is scheduled for May 16th after the German Government gave it the green signal to return after a meeting with the Football League last Friday.
All 18 Bundesliga teams will be seen back in action from Saturday after a gap of over two months. The league suspended play after 25 weeks of matches and the 26th round of matches resumes this coming Saturday. The last and the 34th match day will be held by June 27th.
Bundesliga Table Standings
At the time the league was suspended, Bayern Munich was at the top of the table with 55 points from their 25 outings. Borussia Dortmund followed with 51, RB Leipzig with 50, Borussia Monchengladbach with 49 and Bayer 04 Leverkusen with 47. These four look firmly in the mix for a UEFA Champions League bid.
Bayern Munich is a rank favorite to take the 2019-20 title. With only 9 matches remaining, Bayern Munich would have to choke big time to finish out of the top four.
At the bottom end of the table, SC Paderborn 07 brings up the rear at 16 points, just behind Werder Bremen at 18 points. The bottom two teams are relegated, while the third from bottom team goes into a playoff for relegation.
Below are popular odds for this season’s Bundesliga winners
Bayern Munich: 1/5
Borussia Dortmund: 5/1
RB Leipzig: 10/1
Bayer Leverkusen: 100/1
Borussia Monchengladbach: 100/1
Underdogs Borussia Dortmund are listed at 5/1, which means one could bet £10 to win £50 with the UK bookmakers.
With nine matches for teams still left in the fray, this is a bet that could be worth taking.
The third favorite to win the 2020 Bundesliga, RB Leipzig, are no pushovers either. One could bet £10 on them and win £100.

Bundesliga Fixtures List
The first league in Europe to return after the full suspension of all sporting activities in the continent, the Bundesliga will be playing to near empty stands with only a handful of staff and officials around.
The participating teams started the week in isolation on Monday last after going into a seven-day quarantine ahead of the season restart on Saturday.
The club bosses admit that conducting the campaign won't be easy but are determined to push ahead with the restart schedule – this despite two players of second-level Bundesliga club Dynamo Dresden being sent home after testing positive.
Several clubs like champions Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund and VfL Wolfsburg have lodged in at hotels in their cities to cut travel times to training locations and airports for the weekend matches.
Others like Schalke 04 and Borussia Moenchengladbach are using hotels at their stadiums while Bayer Leverkusen and Union Berlin have moved to more isolated hotels in the countryside
