Borussia Dortmund lose disappointingly against Bayer 04 in Leverkusen. Following the loss on Tuesday against Werder Bremen, Borussia Dortmund suffer an early DFB cup exit. Lucien Favre stated that the DFB cup game should be forgotten. It seems like the loss didn’t go through well with BVB players especially the defenders.
Dortmund proved that despite having great talent in the defense, teams aren’t immune to stupid mistakes. Lucien Favre still players Manuel Akanji despite his current form. The defender was a key component in most goals Borussia Dortmund conceded this season. One of which is scored by Kevin Holland in the 20th minute. Mats Hummels didn’t wait more than 2 minutes to equalize from a stronger header. The newcomer, Emre Can, scored a screamer by curling the ball from 30 meters in the 33rd minute. Volland comes back in the 43rd minute to equalize for the home team.
After the break, both teams seemed eager to take home all the points. Despite Borussia Dortmund’s claim to the win after Guerreiro’s goal, Leverkusen finishe the game in style with 81st and 82nd-minute goals to make it 4-3. Borussia Dortmund are 3rd behind RB Leipzig and Bayern Munich with very important upcoming fixtures.
From the 2005 Borussia Dortmund, till the title winning squad in 2011 and UEFA Champions League runner up era, Mostafa was always a very passionate Black and Yellow supporter. You would often see him in Coffee shops and Bars on Matchdays. He will be wearing a BVB jersey and sipping on a German beer and most likely swearing at the referee.
