  • Who will win the Bundesliga?

The Bundesliga title race will come down to the last matchday for the first time since 2008/09 when Wolfsburg clinched the title. BVB need Eintracht Frankfurt to defeat Bayern Munich and have to win their own match against Borussia Mönchengladbach.

The good news is that captain Marco Reus will return and it looks like Roman Bürki will also be able to play. However it does not look good for Abdou Diallo, Lucien Favre will have to replace him at the center of the defense.

The referee has also been named for Dortmund’s game in Gladbach, it will be Manuel Gräfe.

  • Eberl thinks BVB and Gladbach will agree on a deal for Hazard

A few weeks ago Thorgan Hazard himself already confirmed that he’s agreed to a deal with BVB, making a move very likely and putting Gladbach in an awkward position to negotiate.

Now during the press conference Borussia Mönchengladbach’s sporting director Max Eberl admitted that both clubs are negotiating but have not yet agreed to terms of a transfer. However Eberl said that he would be “surprised” if both clubs wouldn’t find common ground.

The deal seems to be a formality but the transfer fee is still a point of discussion. Eberl made some hefty demands in the past couple months, putting a 40€ million price tag on their winger but Dortmund look to keep the fee below 30€ million.

  • Sancho in England squad

Jadon Sancho has been nominated by Gareth Southgate for the Nations League finals. The young star seems to have solidified his spot in England’s roster.

Borussia Dortmund II’s matches in the Regionalliga will be streamed on sporttotal.tv starting with their next game against Alemannia Aachen on Saturday (14.00h CET). The games will be available on the homepage of sporttotal.tv as well as BVB’s homepage.
