Four defeats and two draws, so the preliminary balance sheet of Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League 2017/18. Even more astonishing is the fact that the BVB has managed, as a group, of third parties, nor the jump in the Europa League. With only two points on the account that Dortmund has written so that even a “football history”.
The premature and especially the disappointing performances in the Premier class should certainly not be forgotten. To come the greater the Motivation for Dortmund in the EL, as far as possible. In the next round, you get to do it with Atalanta Bergamo, an opponent must appreciate the it is not.
While the Europa League is considered by many Teams, particularly from England and Italy, as the “Cup of losers”, this is not the case in Germany and especially in the case of Borussia Dortmund. The BVB was able to win the Europa League or its predecessor competition, the UEFA Cup, never. National team player Marco Reus has stressed before the intermediate round first leg against Bergamo what is the significance of the Europa League for the Black-and-Yellow: “It’s a great opportunity, if we take us to the heart and the thing approach, as it would be in the Champions League. BVB has won the Europa League, never, that’s extra Motivation.“ In addition, the EL is to win, purely objectively, the last Chance for Dortmund in this season is still a title. In the Bundesliga, it’s goodbye to early from the championship race and also in the DFB Cup was already in the second round final. Full-back Lukasz Piszczek makes no secret of the fact that it has the ambition to win the EL: “We are good enough to worry about in the Europa League for a good result. As for Borussia Dortmund, you must have the ambition to get as far as possible. Best into the final and end up winning.“
After a rather mixed Start to the new year with three draws in a row, BVB are back so slowly but surely back to his old Form. Against Cologne and against HSV, we celebrated our last two wins in a row in the Bundesliga. At least as important as the two victories, the return of Marco Reus, who celebrated after his ligament tear at the Vera last weekend in his Comeback for Borussia Dortmund. Against Bergamo, Reus will play in view to the again from the beginning. In addition to Reus, all is progressing Winter new arrival and Aubameyang successor Michy Batshuayi currently plays for BVB in the focus. With 3 goals in 2 Games, the Belgian has enjoyed a dream start, and would also like to achieve this evening, his first international goal for Dortmund.
BVB-Trainer Peter Stöger can be staffed virtually the Full scoop. Only playmaker Shinji Kagawa will fail with very high probability, due to injury. With a home win, preferably without conceding a goal, would like to give Dortmund a good starting position for the return match in a week.
The Name Atalanta is expected to say the least, football fans in Germany something. National, the club was able to celebrate since its founding in 1907, to date, still no Title. In 1988, it is managed as a second tier to the semi-finals of the European Cup winners ‘ Cup to collect. Since 2011, Bergamo is an integral part of the series A. The Northern Italians were in the last season, so something like the big Surprise in the Italian League. Atalanta finished on a strong fourth place and thus secured for only the second Time in the history of the club the participation in the European Cup. In the EL group phase, has demonstrated, however, that it is quite capable against all of the Teams in this competition. With four Wins and two draws, has secured undefeated first place in group E and Teams such as Olympique Lyon and FC Everton left behind.
In the League it didn’t last so really around for Bergamo, similar to the BVB the team of coach Gian Piero Gasperini to the necessary consistency. Six of the last ten games you could win, in the table it is currently “only” on rank 8. The residue on the table the sixth Sampdoria Genoa is only four points. Last weekend, we got away on the descent-threatened FC Crotone on a lean 1:1 draw.
Bergamo is a classic training Association and has no “big Stars”. The club currently has the second-youngest squad in the Serie A. defender Andrea Masiello is the only professional beyond the 30. Will led the team from the Argentine national team player and captain Alejandro “Papu” Gomez. Of the 1.65-metre-tall striker is the most prolific Bergamo-player. In the previous year, Gomez has scored 16 goals and 12 assists. In the current season, Gomez is on 7 goals and 8 templates. The “Multi-Kulti”-the midfield is dominated by the Canadians, Bryan Cristante, the Swiss midfielder Remo Freuler and the Dutchman Marten de Roon. All three Midfielders are very run – out and two strong in battle and a guide is always fast against shocks.
Is trained in Bergamo for one and a half years of Gian Piero Gasperini, who has previously led clubs such as Palermo, Milan and Genoa. The 60-year-old football coach likes to stressed, the body and runners of the game. Bergamo back in Serie A with the most kilometers per game.
Even if Gasperini is the role of the favorite very clear when BVB sees, without a fight will not present his Team’s own statements: “of Course Atalanta is the Underdog, the role we like but obviously. We have already shown in the case of Juventus Turin and in Naples, that we can exist away from home against big teams. For us, it is a great experience against one of the best Bundesliga-team with a Cabinet full of trophies.“
Borussia Dortmund: Bürki – Piszczek, Sokratis, Toprak, Toljan – M. Götze, Weigl – C. Pulisic, Reus, Schürrle – Batshuayi
Atlanta Bergamo: Berisha – Rafael Toloi, Palomino, Masiello – Hateboer, de Roon, Freuler, Spinazzola – Cristante – Cornelius Gomez
It is the first Time that these are both clubs in the context of a mandatory game. In the summer of 2017 has completed a test game and at the time, Atalanta won with 1:0. BVB sporting Director Michael Zorc has already warned immediately after the draw in front of it to take Bergamo “too lightly”: “This is an unpleasant task. Even if the opponent may not sound so prestigious, we are warned. This is a category, such as AC Milan.“ Nevertheless, Dortmund is the clear favorite in this duel, and anything other than a home win and more to come would be a real Sensation.
