Bayern Munich's return of supporters has been blocked mere hours before their season opener after authorities revoked the move following a spike in coronavirus infections in Germany. 

The Champions League winners host Schalke tonight as they look to defend their Bundesliga title once more at the Allianz Arena, after Hans Dieter-Flick's side romped home to victory last season.

There had been plans for 7,500 fans to attend the game this evening, as football attempts to bring supporters back to games amid the coronavirus pandemic.
