Bayern Munich's Bundesliga game against Union Berlin that was postponed last weekend due to heavy snowfall in the Bavarian capital has been rescheduled for 24 January, the league announced on Tuesday.

The match had been due to take place on Saturday but a press statement from Bayern said "security risks and the traffic situation made cancellation unavoidable".

Low temperatures brought heavy snowfall across southern Germany, particularly in Munich.

Unbeaten Bayern are three points behind leaders Bayer Leverkusen but have a game in hand.

Union, who finished a club-best fourth last season, are bottom of the Bundesliga after losing nine of their past 10 games.

The German top flight heads into its winter break on 20 December, with Bayern kicking off the new year at home to Hoffenheim on 12 January.
