Bundesliga: BVB vs BSC

At Signal Iduna Park, Dortmund has just destroyed the first-placed team Paderborn will have a tough challenge in this round 30 when welcoming representatives of the capital Hertha Berlin flying high with new coach Bruno Labbaddia. Will Hertha continue to be excited to claim the debt of the last 2 defeats in front of Ruhr region to approach the European Cup team next season. Or Dortmund will hold on to hope of competing against Bayern with 3 points to stay at home. 

They also have injuries of midfielder Mama Dahoud (knee), captain Marco Reus (thigh), versatile defender Nico Schulz (muscle) along with suspension of veteran midfielder Hummels so Emre Can has can be pulled down the central defender in the 3-4-3 scheme of coach Lucien Favre. After the defeat against Bayern Munich, Dortmund was deadlocked during the first half as a guest of the Paderborn group due to the spirit of going down, but after Jadon Sancho, after 3 matches, the silence received many criticisms. The first hat-trick of his career in the second half with goals from Hakimi, Hazard and veteran Schmelzer helped Borussia Dortmund crush the opponent to 6-1. Sancho has 17 goals and 15 assists this season and since 2004-05 he is the first player to have the same 15 or more goals in both goals and assists. Thorgan Hazard and Hakimi in the last 5 appearances have fired up to 3 times while veteran Schmelzer after nearly 7 years has scored. In the last 7 home games, Dortmund won 6 times and only Bayern Munich made them fall in that series.

The coolness of coach Bruno Labbadia and new club Hertha Berlin was maintained when they won 2-0 at home against Augsburg fighting relegation with the goals of Javairo Dilrosun and Krzysztof Piatek. Four rounds after the Bundesliga came back, Hertha had collected 10 points, thereby only 4 points away from the European team. Dilrosun, who last scored in October, fired back and this is the fourth goal of the 21-year-old Dutchman. However, Hertha was quite worried this match because they lost 3 times in the last 5 matches against Dortmund and they did not win.
