They have the Ruhr derby at home this week, an away match to Bremen and another away match to Gladbach as well.


We will play Eintracht at home. A team that not only we've beaten twice this season (both away from home) but also they will have their minds on the EL semi finals. Or at least it will surely take a toll on them


Again, I'm not saying we will 100% win the league as Dortmund has chances as well. But how on Earth can you say they are the strong favourites, mate? :^o :^o :^o :^o :^o :^o :^o :^o :^o :^o :^o :^o :^o :^o :^o :^o :^o :^o :^o :^o :^o :^o :^o :^o :^o



And the funny thing is that a couple of weeks ago they won by 1 in the final minutes and you said it was a - championesque - way of winning games.

The following week we crushed them 5-0 at home

And then we won 1-0 in what it should have been called a - championeseque - way of winning based on your standards BUT this time we suck

Yeah, I agree with YlonenXabi, the pessimism is way over the top.

Not even taking into consideration that Leipzig have a 9 point advantage over the fourth place and will be playing for fun even more so than Bremen will. I don't see any reason to call Dortmund favourites, it's an uphill battle for BVB now, though not impossible.

You know what, maybe I'm not...

They didn’t play 10 men though...
And championesque was less tgeir style of play, but their ability to win shit matches, while we don’t even win decent matches at times (read: Freiburg)...

Schalke are a joke... They got handed 5 at home by Hoffenheim... How are they supposed to take anything from Dortmund?
The EL semifinals will be long over by the time we play them... Maybe if they make the final...

I really feel they are favorites, but I admit I'm hoping for a title again after already forfeiting it months ago - still think it'll come true though...
- Rangnick or ten Hag in!
- Bring a DM, a winger (Sané) and Havertz!
- Get a REAL sports director (Rangnick?)!
- Keep Hoeness and Rummenigge far away from the team!

Ohhh yes! :D After La Liga it didn't take more than 2 seasons to see this ending in Bundesliga.
Maybe we'll see very soon Friday matches as something in past tense as well. :D I guess La Liga has to do it first and then Germans who follow them. I'm not going to be surprised if Italians make it so, too.
Football fans' voice is that decides all this and it's up to national FAs and league associations are there to obey to it.

Yes and also the Sunday games at 18'00 should be removed...

They should concentrate the games around Sat and Sun...

Maybe move the majority for Sat @ 16.00 & one game for 14'00

& Sun one game @ 14 & two more @ 16

I used to like the old schedule Sat/Sun from the late 90's and entire 2000's. The only thing I like about this Saturday is 18:30h derby match while Sunday must be somehow modified and reformed to look also more attractive than ever before. Sunday in Bundesliga always used to be predominantly stupid, irrelevant and the whole concentration used to go to Premier League, Serie A and La Liga both afternoon and evening matches.
Nevertheless, Bundesliga is still the only league that has 18 clubs instead of 20. Italians were the last ones who changed that, expanded the league up to 20 clubs in year 2004. Even Frenchies did that 2 years before Italians.

if I am not mistaken Italy might go back to 18

P.S our little island has 14 teams in the top tier! :roll:

Would be nice if we could see three different matches on Saturday in the future. 13:30, 15:30 and 18:30 for example.

It’s Leipzig... Versus BAYERN...

I doubt Bremen have much business with Dortmund...

There's quite a bit of speculation that Rangnick will hold his cards close to his chest in this game, in order to not give Kovac any insight helping him in the DfB cup final. If there's nothing to be gained from that game for them on MD 33 - which seems quite likely - this isn't implausible at all. Provided we beat Bremen tonight, of course.

Like Kovac could figure it out

Doesn't matter whether Kovac could figure it out. Rangnick said after the game yesterday that now they have 3 1/2 to 4 weeks time to prepare for the Pokal final. Should tell you where their priorities lie.

B04 v Augsburg ...
all scorers for the aspirins came from Germans - that is a big rarity ...
