Dortmund – Borussia Dortmund’s license player-boss Sebastian Kehl expects surprises when the Bundesliga is restarted.

“My guess is: The results will be more unpredictable, there will be movement in the table,” said the 40-year-old in the “kicker” interview. “There could be a crazy end-of-season rally.” BVB currently occupies second place behind record champions FC Bayern Munich. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, gaming will be suspended until at least April 30.


Should it then be possible to play again in May, all clubs will come «from a feeling of summer preparation, but without test matches, without tough competition, and will play abroad or at home in empty stadiums,» said Kehl. «I can imagine that restarting the table will mix it up. Many clubs that had problems up to three weeks ago will do everything they can to seize the new opportunity that is now available to them and attack again. Others can lose ground. The interruption will change the rhythm.
