Borussia Dortmund is threatened with a negative record at the end of the season, which is currently parked at FC Schalke 04. A central defender leaves BVB and in the last home game against Hertha BSC some players are said goodbye. Not everyone can play.
Here you can find more news and rumors about BVB.
BVB, News: Dortmund “chases” Schalke record
On the last matchday of the season, BVB is no longer about anything. Or is it? But something like that. Because Borussia Dortmund have already conceded 51 goals. In Bundesliga history, there have only been two teams who conceded more goals as runners-up. On the one hand FC Schalke 04 in the 1976/1977 season and on the other hand Borussia Mönchengladbach 1973/1974.
Both clubs conceded 52 goals each, making them sad record holders. Should BVB concede two or more goals against Hertha BSC, rival Schalke would be replaced as runners-up in the shooting gallery. After all, for opponents Hertha it’s all about staying up in the league and therefore you can certainly be prepared for stormy guests.
BVB, News: Zagadou leaves BVB
He came as a great promise for the defence, he is now leaving as a player who showed signs but was never able to fulfill the promise: Dan-Axel Zagadou. The Frenchman leaves Dortmund at the end of the season. “We had a very open conversation with each other and came to the decision not to extend his contract,” said Dortmund’s soon-to-be sports director Sebastian Kehl Ruhr news.
Zagadou arrived from Paris Saint-Germain in 2017, bringing with him all the qualities to eventually become a top player, but ongoing injuries halted the 22-year-old defender’s development. In the fall of 2020 he suffered a torn ligament, in early 2021 a torn muscle fiber, and the following fall he had knee surgery. But Zagadou doesn’t need to worry about his future. There are likely to be numerous lucrative interests across Europe.
BVB, News: How BVB says goodbye to its departures
The last Bundesliga home game is traditionally also the farewell to the players who leave the club. BVB will say goodbye to seven players against Hertha BSC on Saturday, but not all of them will get the chance to play one last time at Signal-Iduna-Park.
Marcel Schmelzer, for example, who hasn’t been in team training for four months. Roman Bürki could only hope for a few minutes if the game were to be decided. At Axel Witsel, the chances of a starting eleven are high. That also applies to Dan-Axel Zagadou. A maximum of one substitution is possible with the loan players Marin Pongracic and Reinier.
