Bundesliga: “Dringend verbessern”: BVB will Auswärtsschwäche ablegen

BVB wants to continue its race to catch up in the Champions League. For this, however, the away and defensive weaknesses must be overcome. Otherwise, the next setback threatens in Mainz.

Borussia Dortmund hopes for an end to the away weakness. After five defeats in the last six Bundesliga games in foreign stadiums, coach Edin Terzic is looking forward to a turnaround for the game on Wednesday (6.30 p.m.) at FSV Mainz 05.

“That’s something we urgently need to improve. That we also collect points from afar if we want to improve in the table,” said the football teacher one day before the game.

After the hard-fought 4:3 win against Augsburg on the last match day, second place in the table is only two points away. However, without greater stability on the defensive, new difficulties threaten in the demanding away games against Mainz and four days later against Bayer 04 Leverkusen. After all, the Terzic team had to concede seven goals in the last two games in Mönchengladbach (2:4) and against Augsburg.

The coach left open whether Marco Reus will be absent from the team again after recovering from illness, as he did against Augsburg: “We’ll have to wait and see. He wasn’t able to train with the team for almost ten days.” Only after the last training session before leaving for Mainz should a decision be made about a comeback for the 33-year-old national player. On the other hand, Emre Can is fit for action again. Mahmoud Dahoud is likely to take the place of Jude Bellingham, who has been suspended, in BVB midfield.

Sébastien Haller could be in Dortmund’s starting eleven for the first time. The 28-year-old striker made his competitive debut for BVB on Sunday against Augsburg, six months after he was diagnosed with testicular cancer. “It’s getting better every day. He’s feeling more and more comfortable. He’s found his rhythm again. We’ll see whether it’s enough for the starting XI. But we’re sure that Sébastien will play an important role in Mainz.” said Terzic.
