The new Champions League season offers BVB an important opportunity to make amends. While Dortmund were said to be lucky at the beginning of the preliminary round last year, they were surprised when the team coached by Marco Rose had to give up all Champions League ambitions after just six games. Behind Ajax Amsterdam and Sporting Lisbon, the black and yellow only took third place. After the subsequent Europa League playoffs against Glasgow Rangers (2:4, 2:2), international business finally came to an end.

Now, a season later, the face of the club has changed fundamentally. The departure of Erling Haaland, the club’s international figurehead, required aggressive action on the transfer market. And that’s exactly what those responsible at BVB did. With Niklas Süle (FC Bayern) and Nico Schlotterbeck (SC Freiburg) they initially reinforced the recently partially desolate central defense. The sparsely occupied wings were supplemented with youngster Karim Adeyemi (RB Salzburg) and instead of Haaland himself, the services of Anthony Modeste (FC Cologne) were secured.

The new modern and fast style of play paid off in the first few games. Apart from the curious 2:3 defeat against newly promoted Werder Bremen, Dortmund started with two convincing victories against Bayer Leverkusen (1:0) and SC Freiburg (3:1). Incidentally, the former will also take part in the premier class this year. From a German point of view, the teams from RB Leipzig and Eintracht Frankfurt will also be starting in the competition.

“Only football writes stories like this,” said FC Bayern sports director Hassan Salihamidzic in relation to the reunion with ex-striker Robert Lewandowski. But a very similar situation also happens to BVB. Edin Terzic’s team not only meets the English champions Manchester City, but also Erling Haaland, who switched from Dortmund to the Citizens during the summer break.
