  • Europa League results

The first week of international play has come to an end with some abysmal results for the Bundesliga team.

The only positive in the Europa League was VfL Wolfsburg who took care of business with a 3:1 win against Ukrainian side PFK Oleksandrija.

The remaining two Bundesliga teams did not fare well. Eintracht Frankfurt lost 0:3 to Arsenal at home. Adi Hütter’s team did not play that bad and had plenty of opportunities to get at least a draw but they could not convert. A late red card for Dominik Kohr and two late goals for Arsenal drove up the score and made the result look worse than the actual game.

This can definitely not be said for Borussia Mönchengladbach. The foals embarrassed themselves against Austrian side Wolfsberger AC, losing 0:4 at home. Gladbach never found a way through Wolfsberg’s solid defense and were awful on defense. In a group with AS Roma and Istanbul Basakeshir, this should have actually been their easiest game which doesn’t bode well for their chances to advance.

  • BVB vs Eintracht Frankfurt

Borussia Dortmund will play on Sunday (18.00h CEST) against Eintracht Frankfurt. It will be a tough away game for BVB.

Lucien Favre confirmed during the press conference today Nico Schulz, Marwin Hitz and Mateu Morey will miss the game. Lukasz Piszczek is still questionable, the club will make a final assessment on him after the last training session. In any case don’t expect Piszczek to start which should not hurt BVB to much considering Raphael Guerreiro and Achraf Hakimi’s excellent form right now.

Jadon Sancho left Tuesday’s game against Barcelona with a slight knock but the young winger will be ready to go on Sunday.

Daily Buzz: Lucien Favre has rotated so far on the left wing between Julian Brandt and Thorgan Hazard. Who should start against Eintracht Frankfurt on Sunday?
