Borussia wearing the Tuesday face

Borussia wearing the Tuesday face

Weekdays, floodlights, cup games. That's what Borussia is best in this year. And that's what it looked like in yesterday's game in Hamburg. Under normal circumstances, a match against a weak St. Pauli side would not have been a huge task at all. But these are no normal times... [mehr..]

An Early August Saturday In The Park

An Early August Saturday In The Park

So here we find ourselves with another season on our doorstep and another early August Pokal match against another lower division team. Yet, as the minutes ticked away early in the first round match between Borussia Dortmund and third division team Stuttgarter Kickers, something seemed wrong. [mehr..]


Match Report - 20.05.2014

We will never be like you!

We will never be like you!

It has been three days since the final now, but apart from the travelling, it took some time for us to find words to describe our feelings. So we spare you a regular match report about losing the cup and let different editors tell you about their cup final experience. [mehr..]

Berlin, Berlin, we're going to Berlin!

Second to last step taken

Second to last step taken

Nobody said it would be easy. And it was not easy. However, especially in cup matches, the final result is all that counts. It is advance or go out. And until this point, Borussia always advanced and with a 1-0 (0-0) victory away from home at Eintracht Frankfurt, we got to the semi finals. One more step to Berlin. [mehr..]

Two Victories Until Berlin

Two Victories Until Berlin

Two victories until Berlin. No more, no less. Tomorrow evening Borussia Dortmund is going to face Eintracht Frankfurt in the quarterfinal of the DFB-Pokal. Until today BVB showed immaculate performances during this year's DFB-Pokal campaign, another two wins would mean reaching the final in Berlin. We all remember it. [mehr..]

Surprises and fireworks

Surprises and fireworks

A nice game, a nice stadium, the pure football feeling of the good old times was hanging in the Ludwigspark yesterday. [mehr..]

Wounded but not beaten

Wounded but not beaten

In the second round of the national cup, Borussia challenged the so-called „Lions“ from TSV 1860 Munich in the sold-out Allianz Arena. And although lions tend to be aggressive and offensive creatures in nature, none of these attributes would suit for those lions we saw yesterday. Our black and yellow squad had to face a very defensive opponent that was building a real bulwark around their box. As a consequence, the offensive part was taken over by our BVB. 38 attempts on goal, 18 corner kicks and 4 times aluminium speaks for itself. Lets see how things ended after 120 minutes of play.

Compulsory Task fulfilled

„Surely it was no outstanding game. Evidently we have to improve our conversion of chances. I didn’t have any doubt about getting to the next round, even after 70 minutes.” - Jürgen Klopp [mehr..]


Supercup - 29.07.2013

A New Hope

A New Hope

Surely, the headline is a little bit elevated. But Borussia Dortmunds win against mighty Bayern Munich showed the league and themselves that the Reds from Southern Germany are not invincible. A convincing 4-2 earned Borussia Dortmund the German super cup, the first title of the season. [mehr..]
