Dortmund falls before PSG


By: Manu Tournoux

Four days before its Champions League match against PSG, Borussia Dortmund fell at home this Saturday against RB Leipzig (2-3, 14th day of the Bundesliga).

Not the best way to prepare for a final group match in the Champions League. While it will host Paris Saint-Germain next Wednesday, Borussia Dortmund lost at home on Saturday evening against RB Leipzig (2-3). For this shock of the fourteenth round of the Bundesliga, the BvB hoped to offer themselves a good rehearsal before their opposition against PSG. It has not happened. In the ranking, he remains fifth, four points behind his tormentor of the day who is fourth.

If it is already qualified for the round of 16 of the C1, Borussia will still have to fight to maintain its first place against the Parisians. But before this confrontation, he had to face Leipzig. And it all started badly for the locals who found themselves down to ten after a quarter of an hour of play following Hummels’ tackle on Openda, while he was in the position of last defender (15th). A full quarter of an hour later, Bensebaini weighed down the locals a little more by deflecting an opponent’s shot into his own net (0-1, 32nd).

Leipzig resists

However, Dortmund managed to come back just before the break, with an equalizer from an opportunistic Süle (1-1, 45th+6). But Leipzig got back in front at the start of the second half thanks to Baumgartner (1-2, 54th) and made the break at the end of the match through Poulsen (1-3, 90th+1). Fullkrug’s late score reduction for Dortmund will only be anecdotal (2-3, 90th+3).
