I think Dortmund are still vastly superior to any other team in the lower half of the Bundesliga, and if they're in their rhythm again, they'll storm up that half of the league. A CL spot, unfortunately, is unrealistic, but a EL spot may be just about achievable, if they return to playing like the Dortmund of old. Some form of European football is virtually essential, if they are to incentivise their top players to stay, so while they won't admit it, such a finish is still among their targets.

From Madrid to Freiburg, Reus intercepting a backward pass to the keeper is key to their goal scoring strategy.

There are very few points separating EL from 4th place at the moment. I'd say the only thing that's certain is that they won't finish in the top 2. But yes, like you I believe they'll get into the EL at best.

There are rumours in Germany (Bild in particular) that Gündogan will sign a new contract within the next few weeks.

Wow that's great news for Dortmund. As long as they can keep Reus, Gündogan and Hummels they will remain a seriously competitive team. The post-Robbery/Lahm/Schweini transition is shaping to be a tough one.

Hey Borusse what's going on with Kagawa? Has he been injured or something? Or it's just that he is having a poor season?

He seemed to be one of the best players in their 3 game winning stretch. I am not quite sure why he didn't play last night.

He didn't play because Klopp decided not to play him. Stupid decision. Probably wanted to have him rested for the Saturday derby.

Do you believe what you write? Do you honestly think that Klopp puts more value to Saturday's match than yesterday's against Juve? Not being sarcastic/ironic/whatever, just asking, because it sounds possible given the complicated status of Dortmund at the given time.

don't be too sure... I think atm Klopp and the whole BVB doesn't give a sh** about the CL knowing that they don't stand a chance ... On the other hand the BuLi they have ground to recover and knowing that they are capable of achieving ...

I think he is because the line-up against Juventus was bullshit. We would have played a much better game with Kagawa there and Aubameyang up front. I think he wanted to give Miki and Ciro a chance and play the best line-up against Schalke.

Yes but if Dortmund lose 6-0 on Saturday against Schalke, it won't be the end of the world and they still have a chance of reaching the CL next season, albeit it being more challenging.

Yet had they lost 6-0 yesterday against Juve, they would have definitely been out of the competition.

Also, each win in the CL, UEFA gives I forgot how much $$$. In the Bundesliga you don't get anything, just the 3 points with which you remain hopeful of getting a good position in the league at the end of the season. Not sure if I am making myself understood as I have a thumping headache and don't really know what I'm typing :)

Not really, derby is our last chance for CL spots this season, pretty much every game from now on is our last chance. We need to keep a winning streak, especially against a rival that we're chasing.

Yeah, I agree that the Schalke game is now way more important than the CL. BVB's focus now is more about being present in future CLs than progressing further in this one, keeping in mind the very slim chance of them being able to go all the way, honestly speaking. I definitely agree with this kind of logic.
