Bundesliga: Top game for Tuchel “on the wrong day”

Bundesliga: Top game for Tuchel “on the wrong day”

The fans are happy, the coaches less so. After the international break, the fourth matchday begins with the top game between Bayern and Leverkusen. Next month it will happen to BVB.

The short warm-up after the international trips presents Thomas Tuchel and Xabi Alonso with special challenges for the Bundesliga summit.

“It’s important that after the national team we get our principles straight and that everyone mentally understands what’s at stake,” said the FC Bayern coach before today’s home game (8.30 p.m./DAZN) against leaders Bayer Leverkusen. Both teams started with three wins.

Rolfes was surprised

“It’s not the perfect preparation for all players. But they are very hungry for the game, sometimes that’s more important than perfect recovery,” said Leverkusen coach Xabi Alonso. Tuchel and Alonso have to prepare their professionals with little training after the international matches, but they should still be ready for the fight for the top of the table. “I’m very happy. An evening game, even if it’s the wrong day, is a worthy setting for this match,” said Tuchel.

Leverkusen’s managing director Simon Rolfes was previously surprised about the appointment. “It’s not entirely clear that this game is taking place on Friday,” he said in “Kicker”, “but that applies to both teams who would have preferred to play on Saturday. That’s not a huge problem, but it would have been better otherwise. “

Borussia Dortmund will meet in October

The appointment was made possible by Sky’s waiver of initial access. The station broadcasts the top game on Saturday at 6:30 p.m. every match day. However, Sky is only allowed to show each club eight times per season on this slot. This presented DAZN with an opportunity for Friday. This date was confirmed by the German Football League, which is scheduling the games.

Borussia Dortmund will meet in October. The game against Werder Bremen was scheduled for a Friday evening after the next international break with the national team traveling to the USA. “It’s logical that we would have preferred to play on Saturday,” said BVB coach Edin Terzic.
