In the end, the mortgage from the first leg was simply too big. On Saturday a week ago, Schalke 04 was 1: 5 in the semi-final first leg at BVB -and in the second leg “only” came to a 1-0 home win. According to Hertha BSC, the second finalist is determined, in exactly 14 days (1 p.m., live! At week ago) the slightly favorite Dortmund are waiting.
With a view of the high first leg victory, BVB concentrated from the start on a solid defensive that hardly allowed anything in the first 45 minutes. Only the crossbar from Sané from 17 meters caused an excitement.
With all the defensive effort, the team of coach Mike Tullberg completely neglected their offensive game. The strikers Fink and Rijkhoff, involved in all five goals a week ago, hung in the air. After his 45-minute mission, Bynoe-Gitten was only on the bench at the game of the professionals against Hertha (2-1) on Saturday.
Collins over the empty goal – Schalkes 2: 0 does not count
In view of the 0-0 break, a preliminary decision had already been made in front of around 600 spectators after the first half. But Schalke did not give up, continued his offensive game. Sané, to find in the second section on the right wing, stimulated unrest, but his cross on the second post could not crown anubodema with the leadership (53.).
On the other hand, after 56 minutes, bynoe Gitten came for the pale Rijkhoff. Shortly thereafter, it almost rang, but after Rothe’s free kick, the surprised Collins came to the ball in front of keeper Treichel, but nodded it over the empty goal (59.). Suddenly the ball was in the BVB network because after a misunderstanding in the Dortmund back team Schalke-Joker Guzy switched the fastest (69.).
In minute 78 it could have been gripping again, but after Guzy’s cross Standers Standers was on the sidelines, so that his 2-0 was revoked. Then the morale of the Schalke was broken, the game rippled towards its end. It should stay with the tight victory for S04, which was enough for the BVB with a view to the first leg for the final.
