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)
Losing the lead twice, once in the 90+3 minute, and going down to 10 men in the process? Wouldn’t be my team. And it’s not. It’s Leonardo Balerdi’s.
Olympique Marseille drew 3-3 away to Montpellier HSC on April 10th. The game was wild with goals scored in the first and last minute of both the first and second halves. Balerdi played the full 90 and had two shot-creating actions, three committed fouls, and two drawn fouls.
Balerdi has two goals, one assist, four yellow cards, and one red card in 15 appearances (14 starts) in Ligue 1.
Sergio Gómez (AM)
SD Huesca (La Liga)
SD Huesca has matched their season’s longest unbeaten streak: three games! They hosted fellow bottom dweller Elche CF to a 3-1 win on April 9th. (Huesca did score all four goals though. Denis Vavro had an own goal).
And for the first time since mid-October, Huesca is out of the relegation zone! It’s been 24 matchdays.
Anyway, Sergio Gómez was subbed on in the 58th minute for goalscorer Sandro. Not two minutes later, did he receive a yellow card. Gómez drew one foul along with the one he committed.
On the season, Gómez has one assist and one yellow card in 21 La Liga appearances (two starts).
Immanuel Pherai (AM)
PEC Zwolle (Eredivisie)
Winning is fun, so let’s keep the train rolling. PEC Zwolle somehow won 1-0 against Twente Enschede on April 10th. Seriously, shots were 19-7 and corners 10-2 for Enschede.
Immanuel Pherai had four (!) shots and two shot-creating actions in his 90 minutes. I think he wanted to win. Pherai also had two drawn and two committed fouls.
On the season, Pherai has one goal, two assists, and one yellow card in 24 Eredivisie appearances (13 starts).
Marius Wolf (RW)
1. FC Köln (Bundesliga)
Oh, Kölle. The winning train has been brought to a screeching halt by 1. FC Köln, who haven’t won a game since the start of February. Their most recent loss was a 2-3 showing against 1. FSV Mainz 05 on April 11th. The losing goal was scored in stoppage time of the second half. Köln outshot Mainz 23-9. Oof.
Marius Wolf once again played the full 90, but rather poorly. He did have three shots and three drawn fouls, though.
Wolf has two goals, two assists, and two yellow cards in 25 Bundesliga appearances (24 starts).
