After the 1: 5 home debacle, BVB split from Lucien Favre, according to reports.
After the 1: 5 against Stuttgart Borussia Dortmund drew the consequences: Several media reports of a separation from Lucien Favre. The previous co-trainer Edin Terzic is to train the Dortmunders, who are to be informed during training in the afternoon, on an interim basis until the end of the year.
As with the defeat two weeks ago at the same place against 1. FC Köln (1: 2), BVB offered an indisputable performance despite the interim equalization by Giovanni Reyna (38th). Stuttgart’s goal scorers Silla Wamangituka (26th / foul penalty, 53rd), Philipp Förster (60th), Tanguy Coulibaly (63rd) and Nicolas Gonzales (91st) sealed the well-deserved Dortmund defeat. The newcomer has been without a defeat for six away games.
Like hardly any other team, BVB, which had to do without striker Erling Haaland again, suffers from the lack of fans. Because the 1: 4 was the sixth defeat in the eighth home ghost game across all seasons. The recent setback is likely to complicate the talks planned for January about an extension of the contract with Favre, which expires at the end of the season.
Quite different from Leipzig, which celebrated its ninth home success in a row across all competitions. ÖFB team player and captain Marcel Sabitzer (26th) gave RB the lead with a penalty kick. It was the sixth penalty that Leipzig was awarded this season and the fifth resulting hit. Dani Olmo (41st) fixed the final score. Bremen (with Marco Friedl and Romano Schmid / up to 72nd) have now been without a win for eight games and suffered their fifth defeat in their fifth guest appearance in Leipzig.
Champions League round of 16 Borussia Mönchengladbach came with Valentino Lazaro and Hannes Wolf (up to 85th) as well as Stefan Lainer, who was substituted in the 65th minute, to a 1-1 draw against Hertha BSC.
In the battle for relegation, 1. FC Köln and SC Freiburg (with Philipp Lienhart) celebrated victories in direct duels. Cologne won 1-0 against penultimate FSV Mainz, Freiburg defeated third-bottom Arminia Bielefeld (with Manuel Prietl, Christian Gebauer from 82nd) 2-0.
