Berlin (dpa) – At the start of the twelfth matchday of the Bundesliga, many watch Bremen.
There, Edin Terzic will make his debut as head of Borussia Dortmund – two days after his divorce from head coach Lucien Favre. BVB must forget the 1: 5 debacle against VfB Stuttgart on SV Werder on Saturday. Four games, four personalities that matter today, Tuesday.
Eintracht Frankfurt – Borussia Mönchengladbach
TOBIAS SIPPEL: Tobias Sippel had to wait almost three years before hitting the posts in a Bundesliga game last Saturday. Yann Sommer played 90 games in a row with Borussia Mönchengladbach before an adductor injury delayed the Swiss national goalkeeper. The 32-year-old Sippel will probably represent the regular goalkeeper of the Gladbach team again in Frankfurt. “My job is to work when I need to,” said Borussia’s number two after the match against Hertha (1-1). And another mission is imminent anyway. “We trust Sippi completely. He will certainly play in the cup in Elversberg,” said coach Marco Rose.
Hertha BSC – 1. FSV Mainz 05
MATTEO GUENDOUZI: Those curls. Wherever Matteo Guendouzi goes, his head of hair is a topic of conversation. It was no different in Berlin, where sports director Arne Friedrich was astonished as a representative of the sedate short haircut. Guendouzi, however, has long focused the subject on his football art. His first Bundesliga goal against Gladbach did the rest. The loan from Arsenal FC is sporty at Hertha. Trainer Bruno Labbadia raves and raves and talks about the special winner gene of the French. The curls fly again in the match against Mainz.
Werder Bremen – Borussia Dortmund
EDIN TERZIC: The new BVB trainer describes himself as a “product of this club”. The 38-year-old has been a fan of Borussia Dortmund since childhood. After his previous boss Lucien Favre’s leave, Terzic is given the opportunity to assert himself in his heart club. If this doesn’t work, Marco Rose from Mönchengladbach can take over in the summer.
VfB Stuttgart – 1. FC Union Berlin
SILAS WAMANGITUKA: The 21-year-old Congolese is one of the big surprises of the season so far and in impressive form. He has already scored seven goals for VfB in the first eleven match days – and thus the same as in the entire previous season in the second division. In both the 2: 1 in Bremen and the 5: 1 in Dortmund, the fast attacker managed to score a double. Now he must finally lead the strong team from Stuttgart to their first home victory.
