Bundesliga: BVB coach Terzic before the title final: “Want to crown the way”

BVB is only one win away from the ninth championship. Before the home game against Mainz there is great euphoria in the city. But Coach Terzic relies on normality in preparation.

BVB coach Edin Terzic has not taken any special measures ahead of the most exciting Bundesliga championship final in years. Concerned about increasing the already high level of tension among his professionals before the home game against FSV Mainz 05 on Saturday, he relies on the tried and tested.

“Of course it’s a very special week for us. However, the key is that you don’t do anything special. It’s not about demanding extraordinary things,” said the football teacher with a view to the long-distance title duel with FC Bayern. “We can’t let that get to us too much. The pitch is the same size as last week. And the ball is just as round as last week.”

Before the last match day, BVB leads the table by two points ahead of the record German champions from Munich and could celebrate their ninth championship with a win. Terzic was combative and referred to the good training performances during the week: “We’re not done yet, but we’re ready. As a team, as a club, as a city. We want to crown our path with a win on Saturday.” Nevertheless, he expects a difficult task: “Mainz’s strengths are clearly recognizable. They are one of the fittest teams in the league and play very maturely.”

It remains to be seen whether the league leaders can plan with young star Jude Bellingham again. The 19-year-old England international suffered a knee injury in the game against Mönchengladbach two weeks ago and had still not played team training as of Wednesday. “There’s still a question mark with Jude. He was able to intensify his training program. It looks pretty good. We’ll make a decision at short notice,” commented Terzic.

When asked about his state of mind before what was probably the most important game of his still young coaching career, the 40-year-old coach replied calmly: “I can’t say whether it’s the most important game for me.” But it is “the most beautiful”.
