The EUROs may be over, but if you look hard enough, there’s always football going on somewhere. In the past, we haven’t really covered friendlies, mostly because I don’t like to look too deeply into them and don’t want to overreact to any players under or overperforming, but at the very least I thought you guys might be interested in following along.

Today’s friendly is between Borussia Dortmund and FC Gießen of the fourth tier of German football. The game can be streamed on BVB’s YouTube channel here:

Match Thread Rules:

Absolutely no illegal streams. There are legal means listed for you to watch the game. Use those and don’t share any illegal streams in the comments.

Be critical, but not offensive. We’re all tolerant people; we all get frustrated at a bad call the ref makes or react to some foul that the opposing team makes. We encourage you to post your thoughts, just think them through before posting them. Keep things PG-13.

No abusing of other commentators or match officials. None whatsoever. Zero. Nada. Zip. Zilch. Verboten, Verboten, Verboten!! We’re all fans, bear that in mind.

Express yourself how you normally would. We allow for profanity (within reason), but any sexist, racist and/or homophobic comments and replies will result in immediate blocking and banning of future participation.
