  • Matchday!

BVB will travel to Cologne to kick off the second matchday of the Bundesliga. The black and yellows are the favorites against 1.FC Köln and Lucien Favre has an almost fully healthy squad, Mateu Morey is the only injured player.

It will be interesting if the coach will make any changes to the starting eleven. Roman Bürki will likely replace Marwin Hitz in goal, Julian Brandt and Raphael Guerreiro could also work their way into the starting eleven if Favre deems the necessary.

  • Europa League playoffs

The first leg of the Europa League playoffs have been played yesterday and the most notable result is Eintracht Frankfurt losing 0:1 away to Racing Strasbourg. Frankfurt went all the way to the semifinals of last year’s tournament and they will have to turn this result around at home if they want to make a similar run this year.

  • Inside BVB episode 2 is available

The second episode of the Borussia Dortmund documentary is available right now on amazon prime.

Daily Buzz: How should BVB line-up and what’s your score prediction? Should Favre start Brandt over Hazard or maybe even make a change to the system to start both players?
