BVB, News: Penalty replay correct

The controversial hand penalty against Borussia Dortmund in the round of 16 second leg of the Champions League at Chelsea (0: 2) has been repeated according to the rules. The text stipulates that when executed, all players except the kicker and goalkeeper are “at least 9.15 m from the penalty spot, behind the penalty spot, inside the field of play and outside the penalty area”.

Rule 14 of the rules of the DFB also stipulates offenses and sanctions. “If an offense is committed by a player from each team,” it reads, “the penalty kick will be retaken unless one of the players commits a more serious offense (e.g. improper cheating).”

When national player Kai Havertz shot the ball, several BVB players had already run into the penalty area, including Salih Özcan, who intervened to clear the ball after it bounced off the right goalpost. A Chelsea player was also well into the penalty area when the shot was taken – even if the ball had gone into the goal referee Danny Makkelie (Netherlands) should have ordered a replay.

BVB, News: Pity from Kai Havertz

While the external BVB advisor Matthias Sammer and Emre Can were furious with referee Makkelie because of the penalty situation, Kai Havertz felt sorry for BVB.

“I’m also sorry because I have one or the other friend at Dortmund,” said the 23-year-old: “I think we would be just as angry if it had gone that way for us.”

Havertz paid tribute to BVB: “Also for what they are doing in the Bundesliga at the moment.”

Marius Wolf described the scene that led to the penalty as follows: “I don’t go for the ball with my hand, it’s not on purpose, I have my arms on my body, I’ll turn away.”

The end was bitter, but one had to accept it, the 27-year-old continued: “Chelsea was deep in the chain with five men. We had two or three chances to ensure the extension. It’s a shame. Today is the one Big disappointment.”

BVB, News: That’s what Edin Terzic says about the end

Edin Terzic was also annoyed by the penalty scene. “It was a very tough decision to concede a penalty. Much more bitter is that it is repeated because Salih Özcan runs into the box too early. Havertz stops completely before taking the penalty and Chelsea are first in the box. We were told that that was irrelevant. I’m curious to see whether the penalty would have been repeated if it had been there,” said the BVB coach.

And Terzic continues: “But now we’ve talked too much about the referee. There were two close games. It’s incredibly bitter, we’re extremely disappointed. In the second half we played very dominantly. There were two games on an equal footing. It “We deserved that Chelsea went through. But we deserved it too. We took control from the tenth minute. The chances they had were from offside situations. In the second half we were able to increase the pressure, but unfortunately not more score the goal.”

BVB, News – ferryman: Dortmund “significantly better”

Next Saturday (6.30 p.m.) BVB continues in the Bundesliga with the derby at FC Schalke 04. “We hope that the derby will write its own laws. Because if you look at the quality, our neighbors are significantly better than us,” said Schalke goalkeeper Ralf Fährmann sky. The Royal Blues are therefore the underdog.

However, the 34-year-old would not leave the field without a fight: “We will throw everything into the balance and try to play a really good game with our means. But it is also very clear that we are about the fighting part will come”

Schalke is second to bottom in the table, but unbeaten in six games. In the end, there were even two wins in a row. BVB is tied for second place with leaders FC Bayern.
