Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund have to give up two games in Marco Reus. That's what the DFB sports court decided on Monday. Reus is allowed to participate at the end of the season in Monchengladbach again. Marius Wolf, on the other hand, can plan his summer vacation. The right back was suspended by the DFB for three games. Borussia Dortmund accepted the two judgments and were therefore legally binding.
Hans E. Lorenz, who, as president of the DFB sports court, approved the judges' individual decisions: "The cases in point outside are different because the player Marco Reus wanted to play the ball. however he was not keeping his mouth on the ball and had no better chance of catching it.
Reus is obvious
The captain of the BVB Reus had flown to Schalke within 60 minutes of the square. He'd picked up Schalke Suat Serdar from behind with his sole open. "We do not need to talk about it being a red card. I'm a step late and I find him in the Achilles tendon," the 29-year-old said after the first red card of his career.
Inexplicable: Just five minutes later, Marius Wolf imitated his captain and also cleaned Serdar from behind with a very bad ankle. He was also consistently fired.
Problems of the team in the final outbreak of the season
In the championship fight, the BVB faces problems in the final sprint. Marco Reus plays his strongest season in the BVB shirt, scoring 16 goals this season, scoring eleven goals – and will be missing the next games of the Dortmund offense.
The lock of Marius Wolf, in turn, again increases the already tense situation of the team in the position of right side. Achraf Hakimi (metatarsal bankruptcy) returns to the field next season, Lukasz Piszczek has been suffering from heel problems for weeks.
Waiting for a quick return piszczek
Recently, the Pole had already trained again with the team, the derby against Schalke arrived too early for him. He was not on the team. Now the BVB expects a quick and complete recovery from the veteran. Otherwise, Lucien Favre will probably have to improvise again – and again pull out defense chief Manuel Akanji from the inside defense to offer him as right back.
