On The Continent: A thorough Bundesliga preview, and André Villas-Boas wants more

It’s finally here. Sure, one of the biggest derbies in world football will be played out in front of an empty stadium and there’s still the general unease around this era-defining global pandemic, but it’s here. On today’s episode of On The Continent, we preview this weekend’s European football! 

With the Bundesliga returning on Saturday, Luke Moore and Andy Brassell are here to give you a thorough rundown of the league, including the teams fighting for the title and those hoping to escape relegation. We discuss Bayern’s improvements under Hansi Flick, the exciting look of Bayer Leverkusen and the difficulties in Werder Bremen relying on 41-year-old Claudio Pizarro to save them from relegation. Elsewhere in Europe, we wonder if Ligue 1 really is finished and assess the state of Portuguese football, as it looks set to return in the coming weeks.
