WE could be just two weeks to a return to top-class action with the Bundesliga moving into pole position for a restart.
Football bosses have ordered 25,000 virus tests costing £2.2million and a maximum of 322 people will be allowed in the stadium.
That number includes players, coaches, medics and media and it looks as if all will be tested before each game.
And to top it all off stars will take their kit home and wash it – just like the good old days. Poor old Jadon Sancho won't even be able to drop his strip round at his mum's.
All this of course needs government clearance but with these procedures in place it looks like games could get the go-ahead.
Meanwhile, we have to make do with Belarus and the Premier League return to action on Friday with Smolevichi vs Dinamo Minsk (4pm) and Neman Grodno vs BGU (6pm).
Dinamo will be desperate to beat the promoted side after an indifferent start to their campaign and sit a lowly 12th.
Smolevichi have drawn three of their five matches but their three points leaves them down in 15th.
Dinamo should win but predicting WDW has been tough and the focus has been on cards and corners – and a big thanks to Greg for updating last week's corners and cards table. Check it out here and remember to listen to his latest podcast.
Neman have collected just one win from five games and sit third bottom. BGU started with three wins but have followed that with three losses and haven't won at Neman since 2003,
It's another tough one to call so again corners and cards could be the way to go.
Greg's table highlights the fact Smolevichi top the crime count with 22 yellows in five league games so best bet could be home team to have 30+ booking points at 8-11.
Well done to all the winners on Wednesday and it was good to again see so many informed comments on esports and in particular FIFA 20 matches.
