Two digits in the second test!
Borussia Dortmund continues to be particularly accurate in preparation. And that even without goalgetter Erling Haaland.
Lucien Favre’s team dealt with Wiener Austria, supervised by ex-BVB coach Peter Stöger, with 11: 2 (4: 1), but revealed one or the other negligence on the defensive despite all the offensive strength.
Reyna double pack initiates the BVB peat festival
Gio Reyna (9th, 23rd) initiated the next Dortmund goal gala with a double pack. After Christoph Monschein (33.) was able to shorten for the traditional Austrian club after a positional error by Manuel Akanji, Raphael Guerreiro (41.) and youngster Immanuel Pherai (44.) ensured a comfortable BVB lead after making remarkable moves before the break.
“I played my first game here last year and it went really well. Today I scored two goals. We performed well as a team,” said Reyna during the break about his successful performance in Altach.
Favre changed completely once after the first 45 minutes. At the beginning of the second half, substitute Jadon Sancho (52nd) added the next Dortmund goal. Practically in direct return, Austria was also successful in the person of Aleksandar Jukic (53.) after Lukasz Piszczek’s attempt to clarify was inadequate.
Then Emre Can (65th), Marius Wolf (73rd), Thorgan Hazard (76th, penalty kick), Jude Bellingham (78th) with his first goal for his new club, young players Taylan Duman (81st) and Nico Schulz (86.) the result continues to rise.
BVB striker Haaland paused – Favre experiments
Striker Haaland was not present at the test in Altach and instead trained individually in Bad Ragaz. The Norwegian paused on Friday because of a sore throat, but relaxed again on Saturday.
As with the 6-0 success in the first test last Wednesday against SCR Altach Favre put on a back four in defense, newcomer Thomas Meunier acted in an unfamiliar position in central defense.
Favre also gave players from their own offspring the chance to show themselves. In addition to goal scorer Pherai, 18-year-old Ansgar Knauff also played on the offensive wing.
