Dortmund was lethal in their last Bundesliga game; they beat 4th place SC Freiburg by a scoreline of 5-1. This win has put them 3 points behind their arch-rivals Bayern Munich who are on the top of the table; Munich will feel pressured to win their next game Koln. This is because the league leaders had a terrible loss against Monchengladbach as they lost the win by a narrow margin of 2-1; which was extremely shocking as they were at home and their opponents had only been able to win 6 games; this season as they secure the 12th position in the league!
As of now, there hasn’t been a lot of movement around Germany with regards to transfers; however, this might change in the near future. This is because BVB is expected to sign an attacking midfielder in this transfer window to further solidify their attack. Rumours, have hinted that Donny van de Beek has been offered to the club on a loan deal until the end of the season. In addition to Donny, the club is also linked with Denis Zakaria who is on the radar of many clubs across Europe.
