Borussia Dortmund is critical after the Leipzig debacle and looks towards the Champions League. Meanwhile, a BVB gem is causing a sensation with spectacular performances. Also: BVB coach Edin Terzic gives a personal update.
After the 3-0 away defeat against RB Leipzig and ex-coach Marco Rose, BVB central defender Nico Schlotterbeck commented on the reason for the defeat: his own performance.
“We weren’t clean enough. Leipzig was too good and deserved to win. It wasn’t our day. The first five minutes were okay, then Leipzig was better,” said the 22-year-old international after the game. Salih Özcan also recognizes the deficits in the BVB game and said opposite sky: “We didn’t get the necessary percentages.”
With the defeat, Borussia Dortmund missed the leap to the top of the table and also had to play against the reigning English champions Manchester City in the Champions League on Wednesday. Particularly explosive: top striker Erling Haaland is in impressive form and meets his former club Borussia Dortmund for the first time.
