Headed head Giovanni Reyna trotted into the cabin. He had pulled the jersey over his head to cover the pain-distorted face and tears.
Probably again heavy muscle injury of the American, Mahmoud Dahoud’s aching shoulder and Mats Hummels’ thigh problems lined Borussia Dortmund’s coach Marco Rose the mood.
Over 2000 down days were counted in the BVB before redeeming 2: 0 (1: 0) outward victory in the VfB Stuttgart. An end is not in sight, because Donyell Malen had already logged out before the game with muscle problems.
Rose: “Everyone in the club makes his head”
The many muscle injuries are not the reason why the Football Bundesligaist and Physiotherapist Thomas Zetzmann will be going to the end of the season’s separate ways. “He is incredibly popular in the club and goes for private reasons,” Rose reaffirmed. “Everyone in the club is his head. We are outstandingly situated and go on. But in the end you can not look into the number.”
Despite the victory in Stuttgart, the chances of Borussians are not great to jeopardize the tenth championship of the FC Bayern Munich one after the other. The Dortmund moved to six points to the leader. The Munich can restore the old lead of nine points with a home win against FC Augsburg.
Giovanniily it could have been the evening of Julian Brandt. The again and again criticized offensive players shone before 58,246 spectators after the substitution for Reyna with two goals (12./71.). The staffing setbacks overlap the appearance of the national player.
During VfB, the mood is not good
At the last four times unbeaten VfB, the mood after the setback in the fight for the class retention is also not good. If Arminia Bielefeld won on Saturday at VfL Wolfsburg points (15.30 clock) and Hertha BSC in Berlin CityDerby against the 1st FC Union, the Swabia would fall back to the penultimate place.
Worries Giovannis director Sven Mislinat is not. “We will look at the games of the competitors and hope that they do not get points,” he said. “But we still have everything in your own hand.”
