Welcome to Fear The Wall’s weekly update on the kids. This will include updates to Borussia Dortmund’s U17, U19, and U23 teams. If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to leave them in the comments.
Borussia Dortmund U17
B-Junioren Bundesliga West
The B-Junioren Bundesliga has canceled matchdays 15 and 16. But since the U17 team has off on the last matchday (17) anyway, their season is effectively over.
Borussia Dortmund U19
U-19 Bundesliga West, DFB-Junioren Pokal
In the A-Junioren Bundesliga, the March games got canceled. There are still games schduled for April, but I would not wager on them happening.
Additionally, the friendly scheduled for March 2nd against Regionalliga side Rot-Weiss Oberhausen did not happen.
Borussia Dortmund II (U23)
Before the game this weekend, the U23s added a new player for next season. Ted Tattermusch is a 19-year-old striker from third-tier side SV Meppen. He is coming over on a free and signed a three-year deal.

The U23 were back in game action on March 6th when they traveled to newly promoted side FC Wegberg-Beeck. Although utterly dominant, they brought it down to the wire before winning 2-0.
The starting 11 was captained by Franz Pfanne:
This was not the preferred starting lineup, as multiple players were out for various reasons: Alaa Bakir served his accumulated yellow cards suspension; Steffen Tigges traveled to Munich with the senior team; and Dominik Wanner, Patrick Osterhage, Moritz Broschinski, and Taylan Duman were all injured.
Subbed on were Henri Weigelt (71’), Aday Ercan (77‘), Haymenn Bah-Traore (77’), and Cebrails Makreckis (89’). Ansgar Knauff (61’), Niklas Dams (78’), Franz Pfanne (85’), and Weigelt (88’) all received a yellow card.
The goals were scored by Richmond Tachie (87’) via penalty kick and Florian Krebs (90+2’).
Borussia Dortmund U19
The U19s have another friendly scheduled for March 9th against Regionalliga side SV Lippstadt 08.
Borussia Dortmund II
The U23s next game is scheduled for March 13th at Rot Weiss Ahlen. How do they match up?
Well, the Dortmund II squad sits in first place with 60 points (18W-6D-1L) and a goal differential of +48 (66:18). They have won their last five out of six games.
Rot Weiss Ahlen is a newly promoted club and sits in last place with 16 points (2W-10D-14L) and a goal differential of -21 (27:48). This will be their first game in two weeks. They are winless in their last six games, last winning back on December 19th.
