Dortmund forward Julian Brand showed relief with his latest win. Even though there were some unsatisfactory parts, especially creating finishing chances.
Borussia Dortmund opened the home to a 1-0 victory over Schalke 04 in the Bundesliga derby on Saturday. Mund temporarily held the top of the table before Union Berlin and Freiburg entered the field.
“We put all our energy into the Schalke ufabet game, it didn’t make us easy. But many times we have made ourselves difficult as well,” the 26-year-old said.
“We know they will try to play in a team that can’t control their emotions. But that’s exactly what we need to be in our game and form. We make it difficult for them at many moments.
“What came out was not good. which is what we are facing right now. The point is that we haven’t been creating great goalscoring opportunities in the game for a long time. We really have to go forward to score goals. Fortunately, we have players who can pass from the bench.”
That same home crowd, so boisterous during the early exchanges, jeered mercilessly after the final whistle. Juve’s strong start evaporated, and Benfica claimed a 2-1 victory in Turin. The dejected players, all lined up and facing the fans, stood silently as boos rained down.
