I have a say

BERLIN (AFP) - December's classic Bundesliga showdown between rivals Schalke 04 and defending champions Bayern Munich will be televised with an added twist next month when an improvisation opera group will sing along.

The game at Schalke's Veltins Arena on Saturday December 4 will be screened by German sports channel Sky and viewers will have the option of hearing improvisation group 'La Traviata' sing along to the live action.

Due to a split-screen, viewers will also be able to watch the singers perform while also watching the live football action.

Struggling Schalke are up to 15th in the Bundesliga after their 3-0 win over St Pauli at home on Friday while Bayern face bottom side Moenchengladbach on Saturday.
