Borussia Dortmund got off to a flying start in their opening matchday fixture against Eintracht Frankfurt, with Oliver Glasner’s side looking completely out of sorts. Marco Rose’s men on the other hand completely took the game to Frankfurt, with Haaland, Reus and co. in full flow. Here is our tactical analysis of Dortmund’s first match and all the wonders they accomplished.
After the sacking of Lucien Favre in December, assistant coach Edin Terzic was given the interim role at Borussia Dortmund. Unfortunately for the first time manager, things could not have gotten off to a rockier start. Terzic won just six of his opening thirteen matches in charge, forcing Dortmund into a difficult situation heading into the final third of the season with a spot in next season’s UEFA Champions League in their sights. However, in recent weeks, Edin Terzic has grown his reputation, with Borussia Dortmund now on a 4 match win streak in the league as they charge toward the top four…maybe even three. So with that, we provide a second tactical analysis on Edin Terzic’s Borussia Dortmund, and their chances of finishing top four this season.
Relegation threatened FC Köln might not be so relegation threatened anymore, after a smash and grab 3-2 victory over FC Augsburg on Friday April 23, 2021.

The win comes after Die Geißböcke had one of their most impressive performances of the season against RB Leipzig in mid-week, securing a stunning 2-1 victory. To follow it up with something so spectacular will now leave Friedhelm Funkel’s team in good spirits going into the final three matches of the season.
