Before the second group game in the Champions League, Lucien Favre highlights the opponent's strengths. Zenit St. Petersburg "lost unnecessarily" a week ago in Bruges. In the goalkeeper question, Dortmund's coach remains the king of secrecy.
As mysteriously bad as Dortmund's performance at Lazio Rom (1: 3) was - she did not sow serious doubts internally about the realization of her own goals. "Unfortunately that wasn't a good performance for us. But there are still many possibilities," assures Thomas Delaney, "I'm not afraid that we won't qualify for the round of 16." Delaney recently commuted between defense (Hoffenheim, Lazio) and midfield (Schalke). Most of all, he makes no secret of it, he stays in the midfield of Borussia, where he repeatedly formed a pair with Mo Dahoud.

Favre asks for understanding when dealing with Reus.
Favre didn't have the heart to grant the goalkeeper his number 1 status again, as sporting director Michael Zorc and licensed player boss Sebastian Kehl had long since done.

Favre is also asking for understanding in his cautious dealings with Marco Reus, who after a seven-month break was on the pitch in all competitive games this season, but never over the full distance. Normally, after such a long downtime, it would take "three to four months" to get back to your previous level of performance. "It won't be possible in a week or two," stresses Favre, "it's impossible." At Reus you have to "keep on watching".
