Ahead of Euro 2020 set to kick off this Friday, we take a look at some of the most glaring omissions from this summer’s squads, from Bundesliga outfits only.
Joachim Löw has officially announced his 26-man squad for the UEFA Euro 2020 tournament this summer. It was only yesterday that we picked our personal squad for this summer’s Euros, and it appears Joachim Löw is on almost the exact same page as us with his selections. Below is the 26-man squad, which will serve as his final squad as the German national team manager.
Joachim Low is set to announce his 26-man squad for the UEFA Euro 2020 tournament this summer by tomorrow. As a result of the upcoming announcement, we attempt to pick our personal Germany squad, both with some realistic expectations of Low’s ideals, and who we would personally like to see get a chance to shine at this summer’s tournament. Here is our 26-man squad.
After a rocky season, Borussia Dortmund have finished strong and finished in style, officially securing top four this Sunday with a win over FSV Mainz 05. The win earns the Black & Yellows a place in next season’s UEFA Champions League, just days after they won the DFB Pokal over RB Leipzig.
The DFB-Pokal was expected to be a tightly contested affair. However, Borussia Dortmund completely swept RB Leipzig away, and Die Roten Bullen never stood a chance. In the end, Dortmund fought their way to a 4-1 win, with goals from Haaland and Sancho, and a masterclass from their captain – Marco Reus. Check out our full recap and analysis.
Matchday 32 in the Bundesliga was full of excitement and intrigue, as Dortmund and Frankfurt swapped places in the top four race, Bayern sealed the league and Hertha moved away from the drop. Here is Rhys Desmond’s Team of the Week for Matchday 32!
Borussia Dortmund have spent the vast majority of the second-half of the season outside the top four, but their recent four game-win streak has set Edin Terzic’s team within touching distance of the top four. This past weekend they extended that win streak to five games, securing an important 2-1 win over RB Leipzig.
With a break in the Bundesliga, all the attention in Deutschland turned to the DFB-Pokal semi-finals this week. German football fans only had two matches to watch this weekend as a result, but both matches were full of excitement, goals, and of course, stunning individual performances. Here is our Team of the Week for the DFB Pokal Semi-Finals!
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.
Two weeks ago the top four race looked dead and buried in the Bundesliga, but now it is wide open again, with both VFL Wolfsburg and Eintracht Frankfurt suffering two defeats in their last three fixtures. Borussia Dortmund were the architects of Wolfsburg’s latest downfall, as Erling Haaland’s brace sent the Black & Yellows within one-point of fourth place.
