  • Matchday 29

The top of the table remained unchanged after matchday 29. Borussia Dortmund won a nerve-wracking match against Mainz 05 and Bayern Munich had no problem in their 4:1 victory against Fortuna Düsseldorf.

RB Leipzig had their next convincing win against Hertha BSC Berlin and are still in third place. Meanwhile the race for the last remaining Champions League spot is heating up. Eintracht Frankfurt suffered a surprising home loss against FC Augsburg and are now just one point ahead of Borussia Mönchengladbach who won against Hannover 96.

Hannover now face almost certain relegation just like Nürnberg who could not keep the three points at home against an atrocious Schalke side. BVB’s bitter rivals are still in the relegation zone just 6 points clear of VfB Stuttgart. The Royal Blues are lucky that the bottom three can’t make up ground in the relegation battle.

Ex-BVB player and fan favorite Otto Addo will return to Borussia Dortmund. The former midfielder played for BVB from 1999 to 2005, in that period he played 98 games (16 goals, 15 assists) and won the Bundesliga title in 2001/02 with the black and yellows.

Addo has worked as an assistant coach for Borussia Mönchengladbach since 2017 but will now join Dortmund when his contract ends this summer. He will work as a link between the youth teams and BVB’s first team to make the transition for young players easier.

  • Isak scores again

Alexander Isak was once again the man of the match for Willem II Tilburg in their 2:0 win over PEC Zwolle. Isak scored the second goal and assisted on the first one. The young striker has now 12 goals in 12 games in the Eredivisie and it looks increasingly likely that Dortmund might not go for another centre forward in the summer but rather keep Isak as Paco Alcacer’s back-up.
