Post: BVB: DFB Cup expectation instead of disappointment

Dortmund’s coach Edin Terzic controls 2:4 in Munich and counts on a fast learning curve at BVB. The cup quarter-finals in Leipzig should be just a break.

Black sweater, black cap: Edin Terzic’s elevator could easily have passed as a mourning outfit in the face of Dortmund’s humiliation in Munich. However, this did not reflect the mood of the BVB coach at all.

“There’s no reason to be pessimistic,” the 40-year-old said ahead of the quarterfinals of the DFB Cup against RB Leipzig at 20:45 on Wednesday (live from ZDF 20:15): “They’re still the best fit teams in Europe.”

BVB: Two chances to make a change

Saying the right thing at the right time – Terzic probably inherited this talent from BVB icon Jürgen Klopp. Just like the understanding that the desire to succeed can inspire more than the fear of failure.

Instead of fearing that the season will now be wasted, Aries wants to spark joy at the big opportunity: why not?

At RB Leipzig, the move towards the cup semi-finals is approaching and on Saturday Dortmund can redeem itself in the Bundesliga by beating Union Berlin.

Terzic: ‘I didn’t even think about defeat against Bayern’

Terzic deviated only two ways to the 2:4 defeat in Munich: the coaches and players openly addressed the mistakes and analyzed them constructively. The game is out of my mind.

Koç doesn’t want to let Emre Can accuse “everyone does their own thing”. After an early opening at Bayern, everyone tried to react immediately. Individual pleasures that lead to dangerous situations of oppression. The curse of goodness.

BVB is looking forward to

But he agrees with the versatile player between the lines: “The most important thing is to play football for each other. We have to stay true to ourselves. Everyone is in their own position.” And that’s it please. BVB look ahead.

Terzic speaks without dots or commas: The defending champion, who has been weakened recently, raves in detail about Leipzig’s strengths; black and yellow contains all the messages of trust. Because of course they also target their own fans, who are disappointed for the second time after the derby depreciation in 2023.

Eleven wins for BVB at the start of the year

Signal: expectation of a goal with extra incentive. “The trophy is the shortest path to the championship. We want to complete our way with our fans and win the trophy,” says Terzic. BVB celebrated its 2021 victory alone because of Corona.

Turning frustration into energy had already worked during the winter break. BVB came in supposedly sixth at the table, and then re-emerged with eleven wins in the new year. Because many correct conclusions were reached under Terzic’s guidance. In his short time as head coach, he had to find solutions to a number of setbacks.

We showed that we can learn.

Schlotterbeck is out of the game

The recipe for success must keep working. Terzic even sells the failure of defense chief Nico Schlotterbeck as an opportunity. For example, for Mats Hummels, who has already internalized the principle of “positive thinking”.

The 2014 world champion stood out from the top 11 despite a strong first half of the season, but also showed team spirit as a bench press player. Coach has no business with him:

His hunger and greed is still there.

Terzic about Hummels

He also needn’t worry about the unlucky Gregor Kobel, despite his Munich blunder. “Greg will get out of this,” Terzic believes. The goalkeeper gave Westphalian more points than it cost and found the correct answer to a mistake in the first half of the season.

Poor performers

For others, not only optimism is required, but also pedagogical sensitivity. Or a lineup tactic or staff gimmick. Jude Bellingham dangles.

Marco Reus is heading in the wrong direction. Sebastien Haller needs a break. Karim Adeyemi is back in shape, but unable to ease the pressure due to his suspension in the DFB Cup.
