Despite little distance: Why the BVB is not a title candidate

Marco Rose did not remember a determined title hunter. After 90 minutes of football cramp, the BVB chef coach was not according to large battle announcements towards FC Bavaria, even if the distance with just four points is as low as the first round no longer.

Instead, Rose was puzzled when he should answer two questions at FSV Mainz 05 after the buzzing 1: 0: the after the playful weaknesses of his team and after the championship fight. “Actually, the first question already closes the second,” Rose said. He had the laugh on his side.

Minister before the Jungzpuns Erling Haaland, Jude Bellingham and Giovanni Reyna had already recalled a determined and titled hungry gang when they ran with raised arms and loudly celebrating towards the curve.

The BVB is after two minimalist victories against Bielefeld and in Mainz again on the last Patzenden record struggle, but playfully does not look playfully at all after a title candidate. “There are always days you do not play well. You have to move together as a team. The victory tastes very good,” Emre Can arrived on Wednesday evening.

Won again minimalist

In fact, the BVB enters all kinds of problems in the upcoming country break, before the on Sunday (19.30 pm / Dazn) another compulsory victory at the 1st FC Cologne should succeed. Captain Marco Reus and Mats Hummels lacked illness due, star door Haaland is still far away from his top shape after a long break.

“He played 30 and 35 minutes, it gets better and better,” Rose said. One hopes that the 21-year-old Norwegian is gradually getting really momentum after the international lead pause.

So the network reacts to the shot victory of the BVB

So it was symptomatic that the triste and hustle and bustle Kick in Mainz was decided by a late standard gate of Axel Witsel (87th minute).

Honored opportunities, BVB hardly had no. “We are happy about the victory, also because we could enlarge the distance to the teams behind us,” said the matchwinner from Belgium.

Eleven points ahead of Leverkusen and twelve on Leipzig are respectable. Dortmund is only measured by Bayern and the title – and the opportunities are not particularly good.

In the season end spurt focus on the league

“The whole number is not passed on to us,” said Rose with respect to Corona and seasonal diseases. “I also have to make my team a compliment: the second game was recovered in a row and played to zero.”

The country break and the unexpected early early should now help to go to the final seasonal phase at least personally.

At Haaland’s livility and the return of key players such as Reus, Hummels or Raphael Guerreiro, Dortmund’s power as Bavaria’s only hunter will depend significantly.

Two statistics clearly speak against the rose eleven and for a large portion of dummy voltage. On the one hand the direct duel that takes place at the end of April in Munich.

The last Dortmund League Results in the Allianz Arena are: 2: 4, 0: 4, 0: 5, 0: 6, 1: 4 and 1: 5. Less than four goals, Borussia rated the last time in November 2014, when 1: 2 lost.

And: also in the last two seasons 2019/20 (Dortmund) and 2020/21 (Leipzig) there was a Bayern tracker with four counters after 26 matchdays. In the end, the Munich triumphed in both seasons with a very comfortable lead of 13 points.
