Bundesliga: After Haaland returns: BVB hopes to catch up with him

Bayern Munich, the long-time sovereign, has not achieved any victory in two matches of the German League. This gives the opportunity to the chaser from Dortmund to close the gap to four points.

is there anything else? In fact, it seems that the Bundesliga title has been awarded to Bayern Munich Something that has been done for a long time. But after 1: 0 of Borussia Dortmund About Arminia Bielefeld and Munich’s 1-1 draw with TSG Hoffenheim, many football fans are hoping for more excitement.

With a win on Wednesday (6:30 pm /dazn) In a catch-up match at FSV Mainz 05, BVB can cut the gap between the series champions to four points. What speaks in the possible main confrontation of Borussia, and what against it?

+ back: Even more than the team’s mixed performance against Bielefeld, the recovery of Erling Haaland and Giovanni Reina in the BVB brought new hope. When the young stars appeared in the 63rd minute, there was thunderous applause from the stands. The long-awaited return of the offensive players should significantly increase the risk of the team in the last spurt of the season. The fact that both remained inconspicuous during their short stints came as no surprise to Brasileirao coach Marco Rose: “You can see that the seven or eight weeks did something for both of them.”

+ Restprogramm: In seven of the remaining nine matches, the BVB meets teams outside the first third of the table. Only against Leipzig (April 2) and in Bayern Munich (April 23) there are duels with the best teams. However, the rest of the Bayern Munich program is also possible. Unlike BVB, the record champions still have to bear the extra burden in Champions League President. On the other hand, Borussia can focus on the Bundesliga after the early knockouts in Europe. National player Emre Can commented, “We shouldn’t look at Bayern Munich. But we always dream and we have to keep pushing. Let’s see what happens at the end of the season.”

+ Final Enemy: BVB can be completed. The team’s great potential came to light at the end of last season. When he was on the verge of losing the Champions League position, interim coach Edin Terzic managed to win seven consecutive victories in the Bundesliga. Coach Rose hopes his team can make up for their mixed results in recent weeks, particularly in competitions that include knockout matches: “At best we can do it. That’s what we set ourselves. But we need someone who can team up for that,” he said hopefully. In that misfortune subsides with injuries.

Shape fluctuations: Awkward sometimes, sometimes ready to get the title. Inconsistency has been an issue for BVB for years. Appearances such as Amsterdam (0:4) and against Leverkusen (2:5) contrast with the great matches against Freiburg (5:1) and Mönchengladbach (6:0). That’s why coach Rose did not like that after the win against Bielefeld there was talk of a chance to win the championship again. “You always like to bring up the topic. But that’s not our topic at the moment.” Referring to his team’s ups and downs, he added, “That’s what we have to deal with. The rest will take care of itself.”

– MentalityBorussia is far from the mentality of Bayern Munich. Although the Munich team lost important points in their last two league matches against Leverkusen (1:1) and Hoffenheim (1:1), they should return in the decisive matches. Dortmund’s Bundesliga record in the past six games in Munich (2:4, 0:4, 0:5, 0:6, 1:4, 1:5) does not bode well for zero points and 4:28 goals in the first game day. April 23 at the Allianz Arena.

– Obstacles: The remaining BVB program is possible, but it has hurdles. Because in matches with supposed outsiders, the second in the table has already lost its ground in the title fight. This is documented through games such as Against Bochum (1:1), Hertha BSC (2:3) and Augsburg (1:1). For this reason at least, coach Rose warned of the next two tasks in Mainz and Cologne: “In Mainz, you know how high the grapes are. And the Cologne team chased them again with a win in Leverkusen. Every match is a fight, we have to accept.”
