Before the DFB Cup game: BVB hopes for a turnaround after discussion

Edin Terzic hopes for the positive effect of a lively discussion with his Dortmund team one day after the painful 0-2 defeat at Union Berlin.

"It was very loud, very clear and very open. We hope that we can do better as soon as possible," said the football teacher before the second-round cup game on Wednesday (6 p.m.) at Hannover 96. Unlike a year ago in the round of 16 in St. Pauli, the Bundesliga eighth should be spared an embarrassing knockout in this competition this time. "It won't be an easy task for us. It's a second division team again, it's a strong team again and it's a knockout game again. But we are aware of our role as favorites and want to live up to it," commented Terzic.

BVB still under pressure

After a disappointing season in the Bundesliga so far with four defeats in ten games, the team, which has slipped into mediocrity, is under a lot of pressure. "You can be sure that the boys already know what it's about," the coach replied to questions after the team meeting on Monday, where the mistakes in Berlin were to be worked out. "It's not that they turn a blind eye. What bothers us is that if you listen to them, then we hear the right things. Only then is it a matter of putting it on the pitch. That's the big challenge now."

After his partial assignment in Berlin, captain Marco Reus is likely to return to the starting lineup for the first time after a four-week break. On the other hand, Terzic has to do without Marius Wolf again in addition to the long-term injuries. "He's still struggling with the consequences of his infection and won't be available for us tomorrow," said the coach.
