Bayern Munich takes on Schalke 04 Friday as the German Bundesliga kicks off a new season. Bayern returns to the pitch with two championships this year, having returned from coronavirus hiatus to win a Bundesliga title earlier this year and a UEFA Champions League title last month. Bayern Munich brings back a loaded roster, featuring Robert Lewandowski, Thomas Müller, Manuel Neuer and others. However, the squad is set for major changes in the midfield following the news that Spanish midfielder Thiago Alcantara has signed a four-year deal with Liverpool of the English Premier League. On the other side, Schalke will be looking to improve from its 2019-20 campaign, when it finished 12th in the Bundesliga standings, scoring just 38 goals in 34 matches, just two more than the lowest mark in the league. Suat Serdar is Schalke’s top scorer this year, netting seven goals in 20 matches.

Friday’s match will air on ESPN, which is a change from earlier this year, when Bundesliga matches aired on FOX networks. If you don’t have cable, there are plenty of ways to watch the game using a streaming service. You can watch the game online for free by signing up for a free trial of fuboTV or Sling. The fuboTV trial lasts for seven days while the Sling trial lasts for three days.
