Erling Braut Haaland on as a second half sub again last night but only scored twice this time in a 5-1 win over Koln. Watching Dortmund play 3 at the back with 2 of the 3 being Mats Hummels and Lucas Piszczek who weren't exactly quick 4 years ago and aren't getting any faster is painful. Would put the over/under on goals they'll concede vs PSG in the Champions League next month over 2 legs at 7.
Red Bull not exactly everybodys cup of tea in Germany but rooting for them to hold on over Bayern in the league as they're p fun to watch especially Werner and Forsberg. Also nice to see Patrick Herrmann's return to form at Gladbach alongside baby Thuram and Alassane Plea.

Mcmanaman "Dortmund in good form coming into this game". Well like 2 months ago Steve.
No crowd makes me question whether I love the actual game or the spectacle, cos the sterility of every game I've ever seen played in these circumstances is always to the fore.

Ah, didn't know this was the thread and posted in the 'there's always a game on somewhere'. Like the kohlenpott derby, not a bad one to kick things off again. But yeah, it's eerily quiet and sterile, as expected. I don't think I'll stick around w/ this for 90 mins.

Tuned in too late for the line ups but I don't see witzel, can, or Sancho out there for Dortmund :(
― oscar bravo, Saturday, 16 May 2020 13:48 (two months ago) link
Sancho's on the bench w/ some minor inconvenience. Reus, Witsel, Can and Zagadou all injured.
Clubs can change five players during the match now instead of three (though only three sub moments are allowed)

Haaland is a van nistelrooy level finisher

Excellent from hakimi, no doubt Madrid will recall him at the end of the season.

Guerrieo 2-0. Dortmund dominating the midfield completely. Brandt has been tasty.

Baby hazard 3-0. So easy. Dortmund have played some lovely football. I assume the reason schalke's first choice keeper isn't playing because he's signed a pre contract with Bayern.

Schalke's have been terrible but Dortmund's standard has been great.

werder bremen stave off joining rivals hamburg in bundesliga 2 (for now). managed an improbable 6-1 win on the final day to move from automatic relegation place to playoff game thus sending down uwe rosler's fortuna.
kramaric with 4 goals at dortmund (SV always said he was good)
and david wagner's schalke end the season with an impressive, let me count them 1,2,3.....16 games without a win streak!!
no champions league for leverkusen so the vultures will be circling kai havertz and leon bailey no doubt

Hamburg lose 5-1 at home to mid-table Sandhausen to miss out on the promotion / relegation playoff.

lol at hamburg and their stupid clock but a bremen vs hamburg playoff game would have been great.

also much as i don't like bayern gotta give a hat tip to hansi flick for the way he has improved them, revitalising mueller, moving alaba to CB and starting davies at LB, the responsibility given to kimmich.
if the euros had gone ahead would have been interesting to see how loew would have explained the exile of mueller from the national team.
