Signal Iduna Park is in danger of exploding with happiness this Saturday. Or sink into despair, your choice. In search of a national crown since 2012, Borussia Dortmund, currently at the top of the Bundesliga with two points ahead of Bayern Munich, receives Mainz 05, who have nothing left to play, for the last match of the season.
Thanks to their resounding victory against Augsburg last week, including a brace from Sébastien Haller (0-3), and the defeat of the Bavarian club against Leipzig (1-3), Edin Terzić’s men have their destiny in their hands. and could end 10 years of Bayern Munich hegemony. “Even if this weekend promises to be decisive, the key is not to do anything in particular. We must keep our usual preparation. This is very important in order to properly approach this last match. Now is not the time to experiment with new things anymore. We must not think of the context or the place, but only of our final objective. We have to finish the job this Saturday and then we can talk about the title, ”assured the German at a press conference.
victory or nothing
And to brandish the big plate, the Ruhr club has no choice: it must imperatively win against Mainz. Because in the event of a misstep (draw or defeat) against the ninth in the standings, and if at the same time, the Bavarians win against Cologne, he will not be champion.
BVB are therefore under pressure to make history this Saturday afternoon, for several reasons: Marco Reus could win the Bundesliga for the first time in his career. For his part, the coach, Edin Terzic, already titled in the German Cup in 2021, would do better than Thomas Tuchel at the head of BVB and would follow in the footsteps of the legendary Jürgen Klopp, the last champion coach with Dortmund.
