  • BVB vs FC Rielasingen-Arlen

As you might've heard Borussia Dortmund was drawn against a sixth league team in the first round of the German Cup.

Ah the DFB Pokal, what a magical cup it is. It is a relic of old times in football where there are no differences between professionals and amateurs and where sometimes magic happens. A competition where it's entirely possible that "normal" people actually get to play a football game against the likes of Aubameyang, Reus, Götze & Co. Every year the first few rounds in the Cup present us with true David vs Goliath match-ups that mostly end the way everyone expects but sometimes, well sometimes magic happens.

Let's hope that this will be one of the times Goliath actually beats David but it is still a great match-up. Amateurs now get the chance to play the game of their life in front of thousands of people (the game will probably be played in Freiburg's stadium) and millions in front of the TV. Just look at the joy when they heard they could play BVB:

Other notable games:

Chemnitzer FC - Bayern München

Sportfreunde Dorfmerkingen - RB Leipzig

BFC Dynamo - FC Schalke 04

Rot-Weiß Erfurt - TSG Hoffenheim

  • Klopp wants Mor

There are rumors about Emre Mor getting loaned to another team for months now. Now our friends at TLO picked up a rumor about Liverpool possibly going for him this summer. Apparently Klopp wants Mor in Liverpool where they need to add a couple wingers this summer.

Honestly I doubt this is true. Mor might be loaned to another team but if he leaves it won't be with an option to buy like the initial report suggests. At this point I would say it is very likely that the teenager stays. We still don't know how Peter Bosz sees most of our players and given the fact that Marco Reus might miss the entire Hinrunde keeping Mor seems like an option. Depending on Bosz's opinion of him he might even be a rotation-player or starter with a new coach in town.

Daily Buzz: Pittsburgh won the Stanley-Cup! Congratulations to them. Did you watch the finals?
