047 2017/wk10 - Heck-Heck-Hooray

Borussia is climbing up the League table, with another three victories against Werder, Ingolstadt and Schalke, only losing narrowly to RB Leipzig. In the Cup competitions it has been equally successful, with Lars Stindl giving the club a magic European night after a comeback against Fiorentina. The Foals were 0-3 down on aggregate, only to score four goals in 16 minutes and a Stindl-hattrick. To round up a great month, Hamburg has been beaten 2-1 in the DFB-Cup quarter-finals. Borussia now faces Frankfurt at home in the semi-final of the competition. Manuel talks you through the games and gives a quick assessment of the key points to manager Dieter Hecking’s success.

028 2016/wk10 - Retirement of Der Stranzler

A mixed bag for the Foals with a 2-2 draw to Augsburg, followed by a convincing 4-0 over VfB Stuttgart before losing to CL-quarter final contender VfL Wolfsburg. Manuel talks you through the games and André Schubert’s change of formation, shifting between a 4-4-2 and 3-4-3. Sadly, centre back Martin Stranzl held a press conference this week to announce his retirement from football at the end of season, an end of an era at Borussia-Park and a personality that’ll be truly missed by everyone. Next opponent is struggling Eintracht Frankfurt, who sacked coach Armin Veh this week to install Nico Kovac, former Croatia-coach.
