Uerdingen host Borussia Dortmund in a game from the first round of the DFB Pokal
Uerdingen host Borussia Dortmund in a game from the first round of the DFB Pokal. Let’s take a look at this fixture at the Merkur Spiel-Arena in Dusseldorf in our vip football previsions.
Uerdingen are currently part of the German 3. Liga. They are managed by the 43-years old Heiko Vogel, who was appointed at May. Before this, he was managing the Austrian side Sturm Graz.
During the summer Uerdingen strenghtened their team, but mainly with free transfers and loan deals. The midfielder Selim Gunduz was signed from Darmstadt 98, while the goalkeeper Lukas Konigshofer came from Unterhaching. In the same time the talented left winger Franck Evina was signed from Bayern II, while the club loaned two players from Werder Bremen – Boubacar Barry and Jean Manuel Mbom.
For Borussia Dortmund this is going to be a second official game for the new season. Few days ago they met Bayern Munich for the Super Cup and achieved a 2-0 win at the Signal Iduna Park. Paco Alcacer and Jadon Sancho scored for the hosts, who won their first trophy for the season.
For a second consecutive season Dortmund are going to be managed by the Swiss coach Lucien Favre. Last season he made the team a solid title contender, but he lost the title to Bayern Munich. Now the goals are the same – fight for the title and reach the DFB Pokal final.
In the summer Borussia Dortmund made some improvements of their team. The centre back Mats Hummels returned to the club from Bayern Munich, while the left back Nico Schulz was acquired from Hoffenheim. The Belgian international Thorgan Hazard was signed from Borussia M’gladbach, while Bayer Leverkusen’s Julian Brandt also moved to the Signal Iduna Park. The club said goodbye to the centre back Abdou Diallo, who was sold to PSG.
