BVB beats Augsburg and uses Bayern blunder - but Zorc warns caution
Dortmund first leader: BVB plays against Bayern - only one warns to be careful
Borussia Dortmund is caught in the Bundesliga season start against FC Augsburg in the coldest possible way and responds in the style of a champion. The BVB indicates that its brisk objective formulation has a legitimate basis.
The duplicity of events was striking. A year ago Borussia Dortmund conceded the first season conceding after 31 seconds, but defeated RB Leipzig still 4: 1.
This time, on Matchday 1 of the 2019/20 season, FC Augsburg struck again in the person of Florian Niederlechner after 31 seconds - in the end, the Fuggerstädter caught five pieces, and the monstrous south stand swayed in the league table tact.
Dortmund feasted on the belief in its own strength. Julian Weigl raved about that 5: 1 (1: 1), initiated with the prompt response of Paco Alcacer (3), completed by a goal-party of Jadon, "That's a great feeling Sancho (51), Marco Reus (57), Alcacer (59) and Julian Brandt (82).
BVB uses first Bayern blunder
It was a thoroughly enjoyable day at the Signal Iduna Park, even the notoriously skeptical coach Lucien Favre basically had nothing to complain about. Otherwise? Reus towered over on the offensive. Brandt was allowed to crown his BVB debut. Mats Hummels, the returnee, was almost exclusively received in a friendly manner at his first BVB home game since 1190 days.
And, especially nice: The day before Bayern had botched.
"The fact that the Bavarians did not win, spurred us all the more," Weigl told Sky. BVB has not only clearly defined its goal for the season once: Under the title, they do not make it in the claims attitude. "I think we can be so brave and open-minded," said Weigl on Saturday. "If we go into the season with this goal, that's good for everyone."
BVB boss Zorc dampens euphoria
Even before the kickoff had BVB sporting director Michael Zorc had to explain the brisk Fomulierung, one last time, then finally rolled the ball, and Dortmund was back. Only not for long. The vice-champion had "strengthened in terms of quality, because I think it's legitimate to say that we want to become champions," said Zorc before Niederlechner briefly mimed the mood-killer.
Afterwards, Zorc did not like to vote in the party canon, despite the stress test and five penalties: "That was a good start, but nothing more." Already clear, the overburdened Augsburg offered the BVB hardly competition; as Borussia screwed up the pace and rebuilt Reus, Sancho, Alcacer, it went there.
Bayern against BVB: old duel, reissued. With advantage Dortmund.
