It could be said that Borussia Dortmund was one of the teams that were nice to watch in Europe this season. Although this German giant has a lot of problems to get close to the heights he reached under the leadership of Jurgen Klopp when he won the Bundesliga titles and reached the Champions League. But now Borussia is starting to create a team that has the potential to return to the top.
Jadon Sancho has impressed many fans all around Europe. With him, Dortmund manages to beat many European clubs and bring in Erling Haaland, one of the most sought-after strikers in the world.
And when you add players like Marc Reus, Mario Götze, Julian Brandt and Thorgan Hazard, Borussia looks like a team that has the power to “embarrass” even the best defense on the continent.
What are problems in Borussia Dortmund
Borussia’s problems this season have been reported at the other end of the pitch. Despite the fact, they have top scorers in the Bundesliga, but their defense is not in such good shape. For that reason, they are in third place on the table.
In the next phase of the Champions League, they will play against Paris Saint Germain. This means that their defense will have a fight against Neymar, Mbappe, Canani, and Icardi.
Borussia has returned Mats Hummels to give some experience in their last line. But the fact that Bayern allowed him to join their big rivals suggests that he is not in the best form right now.
If we look in the Soccer10 archive, in the last 15 games, we can see 74 scored goals. Which is almost 5 goals per game. But they also conceded 30 goals in this period, which is two goals per game. What is more important, Bayern is still untouchable. They were the ones who “dismantled” Borussia with a victory of 5-0.
In the future fans will enjoy many games of this team, but on the other hand, a lot of nerves will be loosed in the coming period.
