- Hertha BSC vs Police
Sadly we saw some ugly scenes during BVB’s home game against Hertha BSC Berlin. Just before kickoff Hertha fans used flares which led the Police to enter the away fan block and remove a banner. This however escalated the situation, Hertha ultras started a fight with the police and demolished several bathrooms in the stadium.

- Akanji back in training
Manuel Akanji picked up a hip injury during the international break but he’s on his way back, the Swiss international has started individual training again and will hopefully be back before the next international break in three weeks. This means he could be back for Der Klassiker.
- Watzke comments on draw and Alcacer
Hans-Joachim Watzke was a guest on ZDF’s sports talkshow Aktuellen Sportstudio and commented on BVB’s unfortunate draw against Hertha and the option to buy Alcacer.
Watzke rightly concluded “We were to green in the end” about the draw. Dortmund was indeed to naive to keep the three points in Dortmund. He continued “We ran 122 kilometers in the Champions League on Wednesday. The last bit of concentration was missing against Hertha in the last few minutes of the game. When Guerreiro and Bruun Larsen missed their chances I already thought that we’d concede the 2:2 in stoppage time”.
Asked about Alcacer and if BVB would activate the option to buy the striker he said “There are no real reasons against it”. However BVB will take their time before doing it “Why should we do it now without any pressure? It’s in our hands. It definitely won’t take until June”.
Watzke added “We will do it at some point but not when the media demands it. At some point we’ll tell Barcelona: Now we will activate it”.
Shortly after Leicester City’s 1:1 draw against West Ham a helicopter crashed just outside King Power stadium, killing all five passengers. LFC have confirmed that chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha was one of the five victims. Srivaddhanaprabha was a beloved member among the Leicester City fans and will be dearly missed.
Our condolences are with their families, friends and the Leicester City community.
