Dortmund’s furious start of the attack on the Bayern


The reinforced BVB blew in the run-up to the attack on the championship title and title-holders Bayern Munich. In the final of the Supercup impressive deeds follow the words, despite the many lack of new entrants.

Marco Reus is captain of Borussia Dortmund. Marco Reus is in the age at which a footballer probably the optimum mixture of experience and performance can get. Marco Reus was never on the German master. And Marco Reus want to be in this season with the BVB finally. In an unusual clarity of the BVB captain announced before the season that the championship title in the declared season objective. “After last season and our signings this summer, another season goal in my opinion makes no sense at all,” said Reus, not “was whistled for his statements of the BVB back”. Winning the Supercup against title holders Bayern Munich have confirmed that this is self-awareness, is unfounded.

However, even before Reus BVB had set-Boss Hans-Joachim Watzke, the direction and emphasized, “without If and But for the German championship play”. In BVB you don’t want to be after the missed opportunity in last season’s only master, it is said the also. The potential basis for this Mission was created in the summer: Julian Brandt, Thorgan Hazard and Nico Schulz of three high-caliber were early to join. Perhaps not all Fans love the shock at the end of return of Mats Hummels, the considerable squad strengthening of the Vice-master completes. Defensive man Hummels, together with the offensive Reus form the leading Duo, which brought the BVB the ninth title in the club’s history.

Hummels must fit

The first joint appearance of the two since Hummels’ transfer to FC Bayern in 2016 should be made in the Supercup against the Champions. However, returnees Hummels had to fit (according to BVB sporting Director Michael Zorc in the ZDF is a “precautionary measure). Hummels’ Dortmund Comeback had to be postponed, as well as the game of the promise of the debut full offensive additions Thorgan Hazard of Gladbach and Julian Brandt, the BVB had won the League competitors Leverkusen, and was against all sorts of competition. In both, however, in advance, that they would not only come up time.

Schulz with a strong duty game debut

Thus, only one of the four major newcomers in the starting eleven of Borussia coach Lucien stood with Nico Schulz in the Supercup first of all, Favre. The national players, for his diligence and resistance are known, celebrated a strong debut in the sold-out Dortmund stadium and substantiate his regular place of ambition on the left-back Position is impressive.

Jadon Sancho shone with a template, and his goal to 2:0

Equally as impressive are the host put then against Bayern. BVB overran Munich in the start-up phase and had already in the first Minute with a great opportunity to take the lead. However, a New foiled the Chance of Reus, with a strong Parade. The BVB game at the beginning: powerful, aggressive, accurate. The Team is also likely to be from the point of view of the meticulous Lucien Favre with his performance close to the Optimum have been, only the goal was missing. BVB pushes, the FC Bayern wobbles, but Dortmund the lead, not manage – an image from the past is only too well known.

Two shots, two goals

But this Time, the Vice-master were rewarded, and went through Paco Alcácer after strong work by Jadon Sancho deserves to be in the lead (48. Minute). Alcácer, Reus, Sancho – the three Dortmund attacking artists on their way to a furious attack after the other, and left the defensive line of the master a few times with your high-speed football. Sancho crowned his Grand appearance, finally, in the 69. Minute with the score 2:0, the had missed the BVB a Minute before, as he is quick with a flash, technically high-class counterattack was delivered from a pressure situation last season they out the possible blueprint of the future success, but not the shoots to perfection.

A Minute later, the decision was clear, the BVB gets the first “small” title of the season. However, it should not remain known. But what remains is the impression of this appearance, this is a perfect teaching book, countering the 68. Minute. These impressions of the “new BVB” are probably greater than the formal income of the Supercup. “It was supposed to be today, a location determination. We know that we have in this season is still major tasks ahead of us,” said the head of the BVB-license game Department, Sebastian Kehl after the game in the ZDF. What he means by this “great task” is obvious. Although sporting Director Zorc in the ZDF stressed that one ought not to say “always”. True, it was clearly said.
