For Borussia Dortmund, the difficult away game at Eintracht Frankfurt is on Saturday evening (kick-off 6:30 p.m.). After the black and yellow made it into the Champions League round of 16 with the goalless draw against Manchester City on Tuesday evening, Edin Terzic wants to make up points in the Bundesliga.
After three league games without a win, BVB impressively returned to the road to success on the last day of the game. In front of a home crowd, the runners-up defeated VfB Stuttgart 5-0. The Dortmunders currently have 19 points on the account and thus one point less than the SBU. "We have to make up points, and we'd best start with that tomorrow," emphasized Terzic at the press conference on Friday afternoon. In Frankfurt, the BVB coach not only expects an extraordinary atmosphere, but also self-confident hosts.
"The courageous approach and the courageous defense make them independent of the opponent. They play similarly in Bochum and away against Tottenham. That speaks for a lot of self-confidence," said the Rose successor, who is fully aware of the difficulty of the task. "We know it won't be easy. But we too have shown that we can play football better than we have in recent weeks," said the 39-year-old. "It will be a landmark game for us."
In addition to the long-term injured Sebastien Haller (testicular tumor), Mateu Morey (knee injury), Mo Dahoud, Jamie Bynoe-Gittens (both rehabilitation training after shoulder injuries) and Thomas Meunier (cheekbone fracture), Raphael Guerreiro (muscular problems) is also absent for the top game. The left-back is also likely to miss the final Champions League group game against Copenhagen. "We're more likely to see that he's fit again for the Bochum game," said Terzic.
TW: Gregor Kobel - The goalkeeper saved a penalty and the important point against Manchester City. RV: Niklas Süle - In the last few games, the national player knew how to convince as a right-back. Süle is also expected on the right side of defense in Frankfurt.IV: Mats Hummels - On Tuesday evening, the world champion delivered a strong performance and was named player of the game.IV: Nico Schlotterbeck - The place next to Hummels is reserved for the newcomer from Freiburg. LV: Thorgan Hazard - After the absence of Guerreiro, Hazard was able to prove himself in the premier class at left-back and did quite well, which is why the Belgian is likely to play again in an unfamiliar role. Marius Wolf is the name of the alternative.ZM: Jude Bellingham - The English national player is the lynchpin in midfield.ZM: Salih Özcan - After the ex-Cologne player was suspended in the Champions League, he should be in the starting line-up against Frankfurt for Emre Can rücken.RA: Karim Adeyemi – As a right winger, Terzic will probably call up the native of Munich again. Wolf is also an option for the right flank. OM: Julian Brandt – The ex-Leverkusener recently knew how to convince in the tenth position. Should Reus travel to Frankfurt, it should only be enough for a joker use.LA: Donyell Malen - If Gio Reyna gets a break after two starts, Malen takes over the left wing.MS: Youssoufa Moukoko - In a duel with Anthony Modeste, the youngster currently has the nose in front.
For Terzic there is actually no reason to make changes to the 4-2-3-1 game system.
