This time, Borussia Dortmund attended the appointment. He responded when he had to respond. This time the nerves could not get over Terzic’s pupils, who knew how to take advantage of Bayern Munich’s bump against Leipzig (1-3) on Saturday and beat Augsburg the following day 3-0 to snatch the leadership of the Bundesliga his eternal rival with just one day to go before the end of the highest German competition. This way, Borussia depends on itself in the league closing next Saturday. By beating Mainz, Dortmund will be champion.
Even without Bellingham, who missed the Augsburg clash with a knee injury, Terzic’s men jumped onto the grass of the WWK Arena like a gale. Well aware of what was at stake, BVB besieged the local team from the start, albeit without managing to capture their superiority in the luminous Swabian. Borussia arrived time and time again with a lot of danger to the frame protected by Koubek but, despite having very clear occasions to spare, the luminous Bavarian was not able to debut.
The thing ended up getting more expensive even when Uduokhai, after knocking down Malen in his attempt to face Koubek, was sent off before going through the locker room. The negriamarillos followed theirs. Can had it in a shot that crashed into the post. Only Dortmund played. And finally, he ended up doing justice in the bright after a counter that Haller, taking advantage of a mistake by Bauer, sent to the back of the net with a low right hand. The fans in the visiting stands celebrated it as if it had been the goal that gave them the salad bowl.
Augsburg, eager to certify their permanence, did not give up and went all out for the tie. After taking the lead, Dortmund conveyed the feeling of having sealed the match and Maassen’s men smelled blood. A simple long ball of his was enough to leave Cardona alone against Kobel, but the goalkeeper borusser came to the rescue. It was one of the few that he proposed Augsburg to a Borussia, who knew how to resist, remained calm and shot Augsburg thanks to Haller’s second in the afternoon and another from Brandt. The salad bowl is stained yellow-black.
The mathematics ahead of the final day in the Bundesliga are quite simple. After Borussia Dortmund’s victory against Augsburg (0-3) at home, Terzic’s men face the last day of the top German competition with a two-point difference over Bayern Munich in second position of the table. Hence, Borussia depends on itself to raise its first salad bowl since 2012. If they beat Mainz, they will be champions. It will also be if he achieves the same result as his eternal rival. He would only lose the title if he does not add three at the close of the Bundesliga and Bayern wins his visit to Cologne. Much advantage for borussen.
