MATCHDAY: Bundesliga resumes after 2-month winter break

By The Associated Press (AP) — The Bundesliga is resuming after its unprecedented two-month winter break. League leader and 10-time defending champion Bayern Munich visits Leipzig on Friday. Bayern’s preparations took a blow when goalkeeper Manuel Neuer broke his leg in a skiing accident last month. It ruled him out for the rest of the season. But Bayern signed Switzerland goalkeeper Yann Sommer to replace Neuer on Thursday and he may even make his debut in Leipzig. Mallorca hosts Celta Vigo in the Spanish league. Marseille hosts Rennes for a place in the round of 16 of the French Cup.
