Flashback: 3rd day of the current season, the BVB welcomes Werder Bremen in the Westfalenstadion, it’s a top game, floodlight is on, our team is superior but nevertheless suffers from a bad conversion of chances (32 chances). Well, this looks familiar to us, right? We have seen lots of matches like this in the last half year. And not all of them were as successful as the last confrontation with green dressed team from Bremen which resulted in a 1:0 victory for the Borussia. Currently, we are back on course after the 2:1 against Augsburg which stopped our so-called ‘negative streak’ in the League. Now this is to be continued!

It has been talked a lot about alleged crises in our Club, but to me this is unproductive non-sense. The last years were probably the most successful and enthusiastic times Dortmund has ever seen and it was obvious that this wonderful miracle would not go on in such a peaceful way for ever. Therefore, it is exaggerated to judge the performances and results of the BVB, as it is still one of the best seasons with a great points haul. Furthermore, place 3 in the table is a comfortable position, even though Sch**** and Gladbach are directly trailing us.

Another reason why we should stop looking back and start focusing on the upcoming matches in the next months is that our personal situation is continuously recovering. Although Hummels once again suffers from an injury that he sustained in the test match against Fortuna Düsseldorf (result BVB 4-3 DD), our line-up slowly comes back to its origins, which means that only our defense leaves some bigger questions open, because the two major central defenders are not available and in addition, Piszczek’s employment cannot be secured yet. Despite the fact that these preconditions may foreshadow that Borussia will continue its somehow weak and unsafe defensive play of the last games, Klopp is convinced of the success of performance that Großkreutz, Bender, Sokratis (a former Werder-defender) and Schmelzer will present to us on Saturday. This is not only caused by his trust in the ambition of the players but also by his positive memories of encounters with Bremen. Under head coach Klopp no other Club was more often defeated than Werder (8 out of 11)!

When trying to figure out what the match could possibly look like you always have to give special attention to the opponent. In this case, the situation is quite clear: Werder Bremen did not have a dream start into the second round of the season 13/14. Only one counter could be gained and no other team of the Bundesliga accomplished less shoots on the target. Nevertheless, the team is confident as it is 100%-ly motivated to be victorious for the first time in the new year. Moreover, they focus on the statistical fact that no other team was able to win more matches against our team than Bremen (39 victories in the League). On the other hand, the players are warned about Borussia’s quality: No other team scored more direct goals from standard situations this season (even not the FCB).


All speculations before a match are of course hypothetical, but that does not mean that it is not important, especially for us: the supporters. We try to predict what the match could be like and want to be hopeful about the outcome, but what counts most is that each match surprises us and football never gets boring because of that. So now we can keep on speculating on a playful level: ‘Papa’ Sokratis just became father of young lady called “Charula” – Will this good omen probably decide the match for the benefit of the BVB? … Well, nobody knows, and that is why I love this game!
