BVB, News: Borussia Dortmund reacts to the rush of fans

The special jersey that BVB will wear in the game against Hertha BSC (5:30 p.m. in the live ticker) has triggered a rush of fans to the online shop and the Dortmund fan shops in the city center. At times even the online shop went to its knees Picture wrote of up to 400,000 users in the digital queue.

But the supporters, who went away empty-handed after the start of sales of the limited special jersey on Saturday morning, can hope for a second chance. “So that we can give all fans the chance to get the special jersey, we have, in cooperation with our partner Puma, made it possible to pre-order for a post-production,” said the club on Saturday evening.

At the same time, BVB apologized for the interim chaos. “The unbelievable run on the special jersey presented us with enormous challenges – despite intensive preparations, despite taking into account all sales figures from previous campaigns and despite the fact that six months ago we had ordered more than six times the amount of the last special jersey”, said it in the message.

The kit is all black and features a subtle charcoal pattern. The city map of Dortmund is also incorporated into the silver back numbers. The special edition is intended to commemorate the coal and mining tradition of the region. The jerseys worn by the BVB players will be auctioned off after the game against Hertha, with the proceeds going to the victims of the earthquake disaster in Turkey and Syria.

BVB, News: Marius Wolf explains the current upswing

Marius Wolf attributes BVB’s seven wins in the first seven competitive games of the calendar year to the team’s corresponding focus.

“We’ve been good at it lately, looking from game to game and recalling our performance each time and acting as a team. Our game against Chelsea showed that. It wasn’t all great in terms of play, but the attitude and the fighting spirit went back to 100 percent,” said the 27-year-old in an interview with the Dortmund club media.

The winning streak should be continued against Hertha BSC if possible. However, Wolf expects a “completely different game”. “It’s in our hands how we shape the game. If we can do what we can and are there for each other, I’m confident that we’ll win,” added the all-rounder, who was last used as a right-back.

BVB, News: Will Dortmund draw level with FC Bayern?

Can Borussia Dortmund take advantage of Bayern Munich’s slip-up in Gladbach (2-3)? With a win, BVB coach Edin Terzic’s team would draw level with the record champions on points in the table. Due to the clearly worse goal difference (FCB: +40, BVB: +14), Dortmund would have to rank further behind FCB.

Coach Terzic could rebuild his successful team against Hertha, who celebrated their first win of the current calendar year 2023 last weekend. Sébastien Haller, for example, could get a breather. Donyell Malen could be a replacement. Captain Marco Reus could also play again from the start after his reserve role in the Champions League against Chelsea.

Expected lineup:

Dortmund: Kobel – Ryerson, Süle, Schlotterbeck, Guerreiro – Can – Reyna, Bellingham, Reus, Brandt – Malen

Berlin: Christensen – Uremovic, Kempf, Dardai – Richter, Cigerci, Plattenhardt – Tousart, Serdar – Ngankam, Niederlechner
