Six wins in the last six compulsory matches, most recently the impressive 4-0 win over atletico madrid in the champions league: borussia dortmund is currently rushing from victory to victory and wants to consolidate its top position in the fubball bundesliga on saturday.
BVB meets hertha BSC. FC bayern, which plays in mainz, is slowly switching back to attack. The highlights before the 9. Matchday.
OFFENSIVE POWER: with 26 goals in the past six compulsory matches, borussia has recently been spoiling its fans. The opponent from berlin nevertheless travels to the stadium with self-confidence. "Dortmund is in an outstanding condition, has self-confidence without end. They are currently scoring an average of four goals per game. It’s about time we got a point," said manager michael preetz. If this succeeds, not only the herthans but also the bavarians will be happy.
ATTACK MODE: at the 10. November is the showdown between the defending champions from munchen and BVB. Until then, the bavarians, who are currently four points behind dortmund, want to close the gap. "We have to build up the pressure so that we then have the chance to pass," said coach niko kovac. For that, his team must first of all do its own homework. Third compulsory win in a row against FSV mainz 05.
UNDER PRESSURE: after four recent defeats, including a bitter 7-1 loss at eintracht frankfurt, last-place fortuna dusseldorf must finally deliver again. The rhinelanders could benefit from the fact that their opponents vfl wolfsburg have not been in top form recently either. "For us, it’s our duty at home to bring home something worth paying for," fortuna’s left defender niko giebelmann stated unequivocally.
SECOND START: new stuttgart coach markus weinzierl wants to score his first points in his second game with the team that finished second to last before this matchday. Like stuttgart, who suffered a 0:4 home defeat to dortmund on weinzierl’s debut, hoffenheim’s opponents are also lagging behind their own expectations. 1899 hangs in the middle of the table.
Favorite opponents: hannover 96 enjoys playing against FC augsburg as usual. The lower saxony won half of all games against the club from bavaria and drew three times. After four points from two games recently, the situation at 96 has eased a bit. Now for the second home win of the season.
