- Pokal bad luck
Yesterday was the DFB Pokal 2nd round draw. While there was a wide field of teams throughout the top divisions BVB could have drawn, we ended up with one of the Bundesliga’s top teams Borussia Monchengladbach. BMG will be a tough opponent but we are still the clear favorites. It will be interesting as Favre will be forced to eliminate the team that unceremoniously sacked him a few years ago. Also we will have just played them in the league(10/19) when we go against them in the cup(10/30).
Looking at the rest of the Pokal we clearly have one of the biggest matches.

There were so many upsets in the first round we are seeing quite a few more 3.Liga teams then normal.
- Matchday 1 round up
Matchday 1 went very well for Borussia Dortmund. The rest of the Bundesliga was also quite exciting. Notably Bayern tied Hertha Berlin and Leipzig spoiled Union Berlins welcome party. As things stand, BVB are top of the league tied on GD with Leipzig. I’d say the only other interesting result is Werder losing to Dusseldorf. There is a lot of hype around Werder this year and they clearly have not started on the right foot.
