Meanwhile, Fichajes reports that Bernardo Silva is wanted by PSG, Barcelona and Juventus. Dortmund won their first national championships in 1956 and 1957, won a couple more trophies in the 1960s, then were briefly relegated amid financial troubles in the 1970s. The golden years came in the 1990s, with Bundesliga titles in 1995 and 1996, then their only European Cup (now UEFA Champions League) win, 3-1 in the final over holders Juventus in Munich.
Still, there was always Bayern to deal with; BVB lost to them in the 2013 Champions League Final at Wembley, then lost star striker Robert Lewandowski to them, as well. The striker has been long linked with a move to the Etihad this summer. This will unlock a whole host of things – including joining the comments and taking part in our special Q&As, where you can speak directly to our reporters about what’s happening at the Etihad Stadium this week and beyond. Whether you are playing indoors or on astro-turf, we have a selection of specialist balls for a wide range of playing surfaces, including 3G and Astro-Turf Balls and Futsal Balls. At The Soccer Store we only sell football balls from established ball manufacturers including Mitre and Precision. Groundhopper Soccer Guides introduces you to the club and city they call home. There’s also little doubt that if given the chance, those clubs would trade their digs in the hinterlands for place in the city.
The pass is a little overhit, although Reus still manages to send in a low shot on the angle which the advancing Neuer scrambles to stop with his legs. United meanwhile will be glad to see the end of this season, with even a victory over Palace today still consigning them to a club record low Premier League points total. The succession of injuries to their key personnel, their horrible rate of saving opposition shots while seeing goalkeepers performing above average at the other end of the pitch and the apparent desire for their marque players to leave the club for sexier destinations count amongst them. Borussia Dortmund playmaker Julian Brandt is set to leave the club this summer for a switch to the Premier League, according to reports.
Dortmund would have been relieved to see Lewandowski leave the pitch when he was substituted late on, but now he’s returned to the turf, all smiles as he congratulates his teammates, some of whom have been presented with giant pints of beer.
Haaland had scored twice in his last appearance following a five-game drought, but perhaps he had not quite returned to full rhythm on this showing, spurning his best chance in the first half and misfiring again in the second half. Pyrolysis works best when it has been fine-tuned to the material being heated. As well as underperforming our Expected Goals model going forward, BVB have been in the unfortunate position of also being on the wrong end of things from a defensive point of view.
If you think of the world this way, then you can see that the normal “opposites attract” rule of magnets would cause the north end of the compass needle to point toward the south end of the buried bar magnet. The issue remains a sore point within the Premier League, too. Manchester City’s celebrations continued long into the night after the incredible final day of the Premier League season saw them retain the title in stunning fashion. Borussia Dortmund sporting director Sebastian Kehl has extinguished rumours that Manchester City have submitted a bid for Erling Haaland. Then the Manchester City target blazes a half-volley well over the target from the middle of the danger zone.
Weidenfeller then fell out of favour and was replaced at the end of November by Langerak, but unfortunately for BVB, Langerak’s shot stopping figures are even worse than Weidenfeller’s as he has conceded 7 goals versus the 4.20 suggested by our model. Dinner and a movie: Start by cooking a couple of entrees, and then end the night with a fun flick. The club are thought to be frontrunners for the 21-year-old, who has a reported release clause of £63m that may be activated before the end of the season. And if you have had pink eye or a cold sore, I recommend throwing away any products you may have used on these areas during this time.
Substitute Musiala repeats the trick of the man he replaced, Gnabry, by scoring – and that may well seal the title! Musiala replaced Gnabry – the leading German scorer in the Bundesliga – soon afterwards, and the substitute sealed the win seven minutes from time, slotting beyond Hitz, who also produced an excellent late save to deny Lewandowski. He won just eight of 21 games at the club, a win percentage of 38.1%, which is far below what you’d expect for a team that have become one of Germany’s big three clubs. Jesus followed up the news with four goals and an assist in a 5-1 win over Watford, keeping City clear of title rivals Liverpool, but he still appears destined for the exit door.
Speculation over Jesus has become so strong that Guardiola was asked about the situation following their thrashing of Watford, and said he ‘doesn’t care’ about any potential exits. Dortmund are clearly planning for Haaland’s departure, while City seem to be gearing up for his arrival, with Brazilian forward Gabriel Jesus seen as collateral.
45th min.: The hosts deal with a few Dortmund attempts to move forward. There had been reports that City had already tabled a mega-money deal for Haaland worth around £250m with agents fees and signing-on bonuses included. The unlucky 13 was a big deal in two-wheeled motorsports, too; but according to Motocross Action Mag, a few prominent racers have managed to reverse the trend. Hector managed to set one of the Greek ships on fire. Perhaps BVB have sold one star player too many to their more vaunted rivals or suffered one too many injuries. Inter have no injuries to worry about. Three of our players have been called up to the latest England senior squad ahead of the Three Lions’ four fixtures in June. This redistribution of charges is called electrostatic induction.
