The master door is wide open. Another “damn win” and Dortmund takes the title in the Bundesliga. Coach Terzić appeals to the fans, BVB boss Watzke to the team.

No one doubts Borussia Dortmund’s first championship title since 2012 after the sovereign 3-0 win in Augsburg. “We will. We will, men!” yelled national player Nico Schlotterbeck as the BVB pros went into the dressing room as the new leaders.

The lead over FC Bayern before the last matchday of the Bundesliga is two points. A home win against Mainz and black and yellow breaks the ten-year Bayern dominance.

The belief in the ninth title in the club’s history is huge at BVB. Players, coaches and officials are bursting with self-confidence after the win at FCA, who are threatened with relegation. “One more damn victory, one more shitty victory,” sporting director Sebastian Kehl yelled through the interview area as he walked past the waiting journalists towards the team dressing room.

Balance between euphoria and concentration

Kehl himself was a German champion three times as a player with BVB. “I know what’s going on in the boys now. I know how great the pressure from outside will be now,” said the 43-year-old. The task now is to find the right balance between euphoria and concentration. “The moment when we have to manage the situation sensibly is already beginning,” said Kehl.

Dortmund expects a furious season finale. “We have to go through another week. Regardless of the losses,” BVB boss Hans-Joachim Watzke appealed to the team. Goalkeeper Gregor Kobel predicted “exciting days”. “Our conviction is extreme. It’s about time,” said the Swiss, with a view to an imminent changing of the guard in the Bundesliga.

At the thought of entering the stadium in front of 81,000 fans on Saturday, one or the other got goosebumps on Sunday evening. “I’m sure the boys can buy whatever they want. The next car. The next expensive holiday. The next house. But what they can’t buy is that moment of coming to the stadium next week.” , said BVB coach Edin Terzic.

“We must burn to the death”

The 40-year-old spoke of an incredible situation, now having everything in his own hands. “We have to be louder next week than we’ve ever been,” Terzic urged Dortmund supporters: “We feel a huge desire and a huge will to share this moment together, in this group, with our fans, in our stadium , to experience and then to do everything to finally – finally – bring the championship trophy back to Dortmund.”

On the other hand, it looks bleaker with the defeated Augsburgers. The Fuggerstädter are heading for a dramatic finale in the relegation battle. “We have to burn to the breaking point,” demanded midfielder Niklas Dorsch, looking ahead to Saturday’s game against Borussia Mönchengladbach. The advantage over the relegation place is two points.
