Borussia Dortmund will play their first Monday game in the newly introduced time slot for the Bundesliga. It will be a crucial game for BVB, with a win the black and yellows could open up a 5-point gap between themselves and Bayer Leverkusen in fifth place.

However it looks like they will have to do it without the support from most of Dortmund’s fans. The majority of Ultra-groups have announced to boycott the Monday games. The games were introduced as an additional source of income for Bundesliga teams but they are extremely controversial among fans. Rumors suggest around 15.000 fans will boycott the game which would leave the famous yellow wall mostly empty.

  • BVB missing out on Malcom and Tah

It looks like Dortmund will miss out on two players that have been rumored to be targets for the club.

One of them, Malcom the 20-year-old winger from Girondins Bordeaux, is reportedly joining Bayern Munich this summer (original source SportBild). According to the report Bayern and Malcom have already agreed in principle to a 5-year-deal with an agreement between both clubs the only thing missing. Malcom will probably cost them around 60€ million.

Furthermore Jonathan Tah has extended his contract in what seems to be a bit more of a surprising move. His old contract had a release clause which would have allowed him to move this summer with BVB and several international top clubs lining up offers for the centerback. There is no information yet if his new contract also contains a release clause but if it does you can expect it to be significantly higher than before.

Jadon Sancho talked to BBC about his start at Borussia Dortmund, what it feels like to play in front of the yellow wall and his chances of possibly being part of England’s World Cup roster.
