On Their Loansome: Red Roses, Red Cards

Balerdi just wanted to go with the red theme of Valentine’s Day


Welcome to Fear The Wall’s weekly recap of each Borussia Dortmund loanee’s performance at their respective clubs. BVB have four players out on loan, whose loans all end on June 30, 2021. If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to leave them in the comments.

Leonardo Balerdi (CB)

Olympique Marseille (Ligue 1)

So, uh, Olympique Marseille sure are having themselves a month, eh? They traveled to Girondins Bordeaux on February 14th and drew 0-0. Marseille received two red cards in the process. Leonardo Balerdi got the start, and while I appreciate him not getting a yellow card for once, he did get a red card. A very soft red card, but still a red card. Before Balerdi’s early exit, he had one shot-creating action, along with committing six (!) fouls.

Balerdi was subsequently suspended for one match and therefore missed Marseille’s make-up date with OGC Nizza on February 17th. Marseille ended their skid and won 3-2.

Balerdi has one assist, four yellow cards, and one red card in nine appearances (eight starts) in Ligue 1.

Sergio Gómez (AM)

SD Huesca (La Liga)

On February 13th, four days before FC Sevilla faced Borussia Dortmund, they faced off with SD Huesca and won 1-0. Sergio Gómez was substituted on in the 81st minute. He had one shot, one shot-creating action, and committed one foul.

Gómez has one assist in 16 La Liga appearances (two starts).

Immanuel Pherai (AM)

PEC Zwolle (Eredivisie)

PEC Zwolle lost 1-0 to FC Groningen on February 13th. Immanuel Pherai got the start, but was substituted off in the 71st minute. He had one shot, one shot-creating action, and committed two fouls. Pherai also received his first yellow card of the season.

Pherai has one goal, two assists, and one yellow card in 17 Eredivisie appearances (11 starts).

Marius Wolf (RW)

1. FC Köln (Bundesliga)

1. FC Köln lost 2-0 to Eintracht Frankfurt (hello, Erik Durm and Sebastian Rode) on February 14th. Marius Wolf was back in the starting lineup (sporting a new hairstyle) after his small injury and played 82 minutes. He had one shot and drew one foul.

Wolf has two goals, two assists, and two yellow cards in 18 Bundesliga appearances (17 starts).
