But their traditional post-match celebration, which consists of marching towards their legions of fans, looked completely different in an empty stadium.

The Dortmund squad still rallied and celebrated with their cheers crystal clear to hear.

Even celebrations during the match are now at a distance, as part of the new measures in place.

And it was no surprise Erling Haaland scored the first goal of the Bundesliga restart.

The prolific Borussia Dortmund frontman was no doubt one of the favourites to make the history books and be the first person to register after virus suspended the campaign.

It was a deft finish that put his side 1-0 up against Schalke, with Thorgan Hazard getting the assist.
