Tiger Fighting on October 23 News Dortmund lost 1-3 to Lazio in the Champions League this week. Not only was the score embarrassing, Dortmund's performance was also very unsatisfactory. Bild analyzed this and revealed some internal conditions of Dort.
The report pointed out that Bellingham and Renner's performance was not stable enough, and Sancho was far from reaching the state of last season. In addition, his devotion seems to be a bit insufficient. Bild pointed out that Sancho's discipline has always been a problem for the team.
In addition, Dortmund's ability to play against the wind is insufficient. The report pointed out that "if things don't go well, no one really dares to speak up. Everyone would rather avoid obscurity than disturb the people next to them." Only Hummels and Burki will become louder, and captain Royce is more about competing with himself rather than assuming the responsibility of the leader. In the game against Lazio, Royce had only a 36% win rate against Lazio, which can explain some things.
In addition, there is almost no competition within the Dort team. The newly joined Menier performed poorly, but since no one competed with him, his position was very stable. On the offensive end, Brandt cannot put any pressure on regular players, which is also a problem.
