Fortuna Dusseldorf boss Uwe Rosler is adamant away teams have an advantage in behind closed doors games.
The Bundesliga became the first major football league to resume amid the coronavirus pandemic on May 16.
In 27 matches since the Bundesliga’s return, there have been only five home wins with 12 away victories recorded.
When asked if home advantage is now non-existent, Rosler, whose club are battling relegation, told talkSPORT: “Yes, definitely, especially for the teams in the lower part of the table.
“A lot of those teams thrive on emotions, spirit, support of the crowd and that is missing.
“The emotional levels are not 100 per cent so you find it hard to find win games. You know how hard it is to win games in the Premier League and it’s the same here.
Home records since the Bundesliga returned behind closed doors
“It’s very, very difficult to win games and at the moment, I can see a pattern that the away teams play with more freedom and obviously they’re picking up more points than the home teams.”
Fortuna Dusseldorf have been in good form since German football returned, picking up two draws and a win.
They face a daunting task with a trip to Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich on Saturday.
On Thursday, the Premier League confirmed the 2019/20 season will restart on June 17.
With games set to be played behind closed doors, English top-flight clubs could benefit from listening to Rosler.
However, police have requested five games, including ones where Liverpool, who hold a 25-point lead over second-placed Man City, could potentially win the Premier League title, are played at neutral venues.
Those matches are Man City vs Liverpool, Man City vs Newcastle, Manchester United vs Sheffield United, Newcastle vs Liverpool and Everton vs Liverpool.
