Borussia Dortmund, third rival of the yellows


Villarreal CF will face Borussia Dortmund today, Friday, starting at 7:00 p.m. at the Cashpoint Arena (Austria). The match against the dortmunds team will be the third of the European Summer Tour 2022 Color Star for the yellows after having faced each other with Sporting CP and PSV Eindhoven last week.

Borussia Dortmund is one of the leading clubs in Germany. A UEFA Champions League in the 96-97 season, 8 Bundesligas, 5 DFB Pokal and 8 German Super Cups are the trophies held by a team that was runner-up in the Bundesliga last season, remaining eight points behind Bayern of Munich.

Despite his good work in domestic competition, the 21-22 season was not a campaign to remember as far as his role in European competition is concerned. After failing to qualify for the round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League, but obtaining the third place that made him fall to the round of 32 of the Europa League, the team coached at the time by Marco Rose fell in that round against Rangers FC.

After Rose’s dismissal in May of this year, it was Edin Terzic – who already led the team in the 20-21 campaign – the man chosen by the Teutonic team’s board to face the 22-23 season. Talented players like Lewandowski, Haaland, Sancho, Dembele or Aubameyang have passed through the ranks of Dormunt. A squad that, despite the sale of these players in recent years, maintains quality in its ranks with experienced players in Europe such as Marco Reus and Mats Hummels, but also with youngsters such as Reyna, Bellingham or Adeyemi.
