Borussia Dortmund wins the Champions League

IOn the upswing in the Bundesliga, on course in the Champions League: Borussia Dortmund has continued its upward trend to start in the premier class. With the 3-0 (2-0) win over outsiders FC Copenhagen, coach Edin Terzic’s team created a cushion for the forthcoming away games at Manchester City and FC Sevilla.

In front of the impressive backdrop of 70,700 spectators in Signal Iduna Park, where standing room was allowed for the first time since 1998, the strong Marco Reus (35th), Raphaël Guerreiro (42nd) and Jude Bellingham (83rd) for the deserved success. Newcomer Sébastien Haller, who was sitting in the stands after his tumor operation and who received an ovation from the fans, was also happy about this.

Despite growing concerns about injuries, Dortmund controlled the game on Tuesday. BVB has to replace five offensive players early in the season, because against the Danes too Thorgan Hazard had to leave because of thigh problems (23rd). Even first-choice goalkeeper Gregor Kobel is initially out due to a torn muscle fiber, but his substitute Alexander Meyer was only really challenged once in his premier class debut.

At first, Borussia struggled against the deep guests. Copenhagen often forced the Bundesliga runners-up to move to the flanks, but BVB did not become dangerous from there. Instead, a combination through the center provided the lead. National player Niklas Süle, for whom Mats Hummels had to be on the bench, started the attack of the hosts and found Julian Brandt. As in the 1-0 win against Hoffenheim last Friday, Brandt made a brilliant pass to Reus, who completed the shot from close range. And BVB didn’t let up. But on the contrary.
