The schedule for matchdays 28-32 has been set and as expected Borussia Dortmund did not get another Monday game. The two remaining Monday games will be played in Leipzig (vs Leverkusen) and Mainz (vs Freiburg). Considering the boycotts and protests in Frankfurt and Dortmund the first two Monday games were a disaster for the league with attendance in Dortmund falling to an unprecedented 54.000 fans. In Leipzig the DFL probably won’t have to fear massive protests against the games.

The Revierderby where Dortmund will look to avenge the draw from the first game will be played on a Sunday, while Der Klassiker against Bayern Munich will be on a Saturday.

The ex-BVB coach, who won two Bundesliga titles (1995, 1996) and one Champions League title (1997) with the club, has confirmed that Borussia Dortmund contacted him after they sacked Peter Bosz. However Hitzfeld rejected the inquiry immediately, insisting that he’s retired and won’t return to the coaching position.

According to the Mirror the Tottenham Hotspur are preparing a bid for Marco Reus who is currently in contract talks with BVB. Liverpool and AC Milan are also clubs rumored to be interested in Reus.’s the Mirror so I’d take this one with a grain of salt but it’s likely that there would be a long list of suitors for Reus if he would reject an extension. However Reus seems to be willing to stay with his childhood club if Dortmund can qualify for the Champions League.
