Total Dortmund nightmare

The yellow party turned into a nightmare. What was meant to be a historic day of celebration turned tragic. Dortmund felt a paralysis from the initial moment until the end of the day in which they could be proclaimed champion. Only a final stretch in which Cologne drew against Bayern brought ephemeral joy back to a mentally shattered Dortmund, far, far from the version that had led them up to this point in the season with options to be champion.

Bayern’s early goal in the other match triggered a panic attack that was accompanied by all manner of hardship. First, Mainz surprisingly took the lead with Hanche-Olsen’s header from a corner; shortly after Haller missed a penalty that would have meant the tie and peace of mind; and almost afterwards Onisiwo headed in to put the painful 0-2 on the scoreboard. All this in 10 disastrous minutes for the locals, who also saw how Adeyemi suffered a strain and had to leave the match early. With Bellingham also injured on the bench, it was an absolute drama at Signal Iduna Park.

Terzic put Moukoko in at half-time and hoped that his team would break free, but it didn’t and Mainz ran wild on each counterattack with an imperial Onisiwo. The Austrian shot at the post in a play that was the absolute sentence. Dortmund breathed and also its coach, who stirred up the hornet’s nest again with two young people like Reyna and the debutant Duranville. The Belgian opened the field on the right and the American turned on the light on the left. A move initiated by this sector ended in the shot, with the right, of Guerreiro, the goal that the locals needed to return to believe and press.

Reus headed high, the Mainz defense collapsed and Dahmen’s goal began to come under siege. Time was running out. Dortmund lived on the wire. Suddenly, almost at the most unexpected moment, the stands erupted with joy at the news coming from Cologne. A goal from Ljubicic with ten minutes to go put Terzic’s men back in the lead, who felt the relief they had not had at any other moment in the game. A breath of fresh air in an incredible ending. A season finale to remember that was still missing the last corner.

With the title in hand, despite their mistakes, a goal from Musiala in Cologne buried Dortmund’s hopes, an unappealable punishment for a team that wrote its black history with an epic skid. Not even Süle’s goal in the last play prevented disappointment. A drama. A disappointment in capital letters. An end of the journey that may also be that of Bellingham in Germany.
