On Wednesday evening (kick-off 9 p.m.) Borussia Dortmund is a guest in the Champions League at FC Sevilla. After the recent 2:3 defeat at 1. FC Köln, the black and yellow want to get back on the road to success in the third group game. In terms of personnel, things are still not really looking rosy at BVB.
At the press conference early Tuesday evening, Edin Terzic made no secret of the fact that the disappointment after the bankruptcy in Cologne was huge. "We tried to find an open and honest approach," explained the trainer (via Ruhr Nachrichten). "We asked ourselves a few questions that are difficult to answer. We will work hard on things to make the upcoming games successful," said the BVB coach.
Terzic assumes that "ten points or more" will be necessary to reach the knockout phase. "There are four games left to score," said the Rose successor, who doesn't expect an easy game in Seville. The head coach does not want to be blinded by the current table situation of the Andalusians, who are only 17th in the Primera Division. "The potential that Seville has is enormous. They are among the top teams in Spain and Europe," emphasized Terzic. "Two years ago they were very difficult tasks." In February/March 2021, the Black and Yellows advanced to the quarter-finals after a 3-2 away win in the first leg and a 2-2 draw in the second leg.
TW: Alexander Meyer - Terzic will only decide after the final training whether Kobel will be between the posts again. You will certainly not take a risk with the number one. Therefore, Meyer could start again. RV: Thomas Meunier - Due to the failures of Hummels and Wolf, the back four is almost on its own. The Belgian national player takes over the right side of defence.IV: Niklas Süle - The newcomer from Munich starts half-right in the center of defence. IV: Nico Schlotterbeck - The place next to Süle is reserved for Schlotterbeck.LV: Raphael Guerreiro - The back four is completed by the 28-year-old left foot. DM: Salih Özcan - The former Cologne native is expected in defensive midfield. Emre Can is the name of the alternative.CM: Jude Bellingham - Bellingham wore the captain's armband for the first time last weekend.CM: Julian Brandt - Brandt scored his second goal of the season in Cologne.RA: Karim Adeyemi - The 20-year-old is supposed to do business on the right flank. LA: Donyell Malen - The Dutchman will probably start again as a left winger. Thorgan Hazard is also an option for the wings.MS: Youssoufa Moukoko - In the center of attack the youngster could be preferred to the recently disappointing Anthony Modeste.
In addition to the 4-3-3 system, a 4-2-3-1 formation is also conceivable. In this case, Bellingham starts a little more defensively.
