Berlin - The German Football League (DFL) say there will be a minute's silence at all Bundesliga matches this weekend to pay tribute to the victims of the terrorist attacks in Spain.

The German league resumes on Friday when Bayern Munich host Bayer Leverkusen in the first match of 2017/18 season and all games across Germany's top two divisions will be preceded by a minute's silence.

The DFL wants to "express its solidarity with the Spanish people and in particular with the 15 players from Spain in the first and second divisions of the Bundesliga".

Spain's La Liga also returns on Friday under the shadow of terrorist attacks in Barcelona and Cambrils that killed 14 and left more than a hundred injured.
