    That’s the end of this live page now, thanks for joining me today and texting/tweeting in.

    It’s great to have elite football back isn’t it?

    It was strange without fans and with masks and some social distancing. But it was still magic.

    Shall we do it all again for Union Berlin v Bayern Munich at 17:00 BST tomorrow?

  3. Post update

    Ipswich manager and former Dortmund midfielder Paul Lambert on BT Sport: “There are a lot of unanswered questions still. Safety is still the main thing.

    “The lack of atmosphere is a really strange thing. It is going to take a lot to get used to.”

  4. Post update

    Fortuna Düsseldorf have drawn five of their seven Bundesliga matches under Uwe Rösler, winning one and losing the other.

    Chris Roach: Re: update at 4:35pm – why no one is calling elbow bumps “elbumps” is beyond me

  6. ‘Football without fans is tough to watch’

    Borussia Dortmund 4-0 Schalke

    Former Bayern Munich and England midfielder Owen Hargreaves on BT Sport: “I am missing the fans already. It was so strange, it is going to take some getting used to. But the goals were quality.

    “For the first 20 minutes the intensity wasnt there and it will take some to get that back. Football without the fans is tough to watch.”

  7. Post update

    A boost for Dortmund’s title hopes but a blow for Leipzig’s.

    At the bottom Paderborn remain six points behind Fortuna Dusseldorf, who are in the relegation play-off place, after the sides drew 0-0.

  8. Post update

    I’ve just seen footage of Wolfsburg players kicking boots with the referee team instead of shaking hands. A lot of fist bumps and elbow bumps (is there even a name for that?) too.

  9. Post update

    I think we all really enjoyed that, didn’t we? Football without fans can’t compare to football with fans. But it’s miles better than no football. So long as everyone stays safe of course.

    Ha ha ha brilliant. Borussia Dortmund’s players and coaches (some wearing masks) go to the Yellow Wall to celebrate as if their home fans are there.

    It’s all over. The final whistle goes to a small bit of applause from the bench.

    Dortmund were brilliant, Schalke were awful.
