As an illustrative example, the official cited the German “Schalke”, which is the first after the break, meeting with Borussia Dortmund — suffered a major defeat (0:4).

“Of course, the first three or four rounds of the team are unlikely to show the same level of skill. It is clear based on what we saw in the matches of the German Bundesliga. Some prepared hard and played so well. And the players of the same Schalke, for example, sitting in quarantine, so barely crawling on the field,” said spikelets in an interview with RT.

Spikelets previously suggested a possible increase of injuries of players after the resumption of the season.
