Torrential rain: BVB: Test play-off against Udinese - worried about hazard

The first BVB test in the training camp of Bad Ragaz has to be stopped. Torrential rain stop a playfully dominating Dortmund team. An injury even overshadows the crash.

First worth seeing goals, then torrential rain - the first test match of Borussia Dortmund in the training camp of Bad Ragaz has come to an end prematurely. Due to heavy rainfall, which had started on Saturday shortly after halftime in Altach (Austria), the referee broke the match against the Italian first division club Udinese Calcio on Saturday in the 83rd minute at the score of 4: 1 for BVB.

Until then, the Bundesliga club had offered a convincing performance in front of about 5,000 spectators and led by goals from Thorgan Hazard (6th), Mario Götze (19th / penalty), Julian Weigl (33rd) and Julian Brandt (43) , Mandragora Rolando (74th) shortened for the Italians.

Worried about hazard

BVB sports director Michael Zorc welcomed the game crash. "It was all right, football could not be played properly and the risk of injury was too great," he said.

Not only the weather clouded the joy of the strong performance. Shortly after his goal debut for his new club the former Gladbacher Hazard had to be replaced. He had fallen over with his ankle and was already at half-time on the way back to the team hotel. A total of 22 BVB professionals were used in the game.

Another test for the title contender from Dortmund is on 30 July at FC St. Gallen. Only one day after returning from Switzerland, the Supercup will be the first duel of the two title favorites from Dortmund and Munich on 3 August.
