Unless otherwise mentioned, these stats problem all the conferences played in this competition because its development in 1955. The preliminary towers are counted in the stats.
After the 0: 4 humiliation in Amsterdam, the BVB wants to put the course for the progress in the Champions League in the second leg against the Dutch. So that succeeds, the black and yellow must show another face especially in the defensive work.
Too totally and passive in the backward movement, too complicated and inaccurate on the way forward: BVB presented itself from his worst side at the Champions League away game in Amsterdam. Although the Dortmund in the Johan-Cruyff-Arena could have achieved one or the other goal, over three, four more goals, they would not have complained.
Before the second leg on Wednesday you can be curious how the Borussen react to the lesson. It is clear that there will be some duels on the field that the BVB can not lose in the second forces with the Dutch record champion. It will arrive especially on these three duels.
Mats Hummels vs. Sébastien Haller
With two templates and a goal, the former Frankfurter was one of the crucial players in the field. The striker was never to grab the Dortmund domestic defense. Not only Hallers Assists and his hits made the difference. His incredibly clever movements into the free spaces between the defenders made Hummels and Co. against unsolvable problems.
Hummels often ran after Haller behind
Against Haller, the Dortmund almost always came a step too late, mostly only responded. For this reason, too, the former Eintracht striker won 64 percent of its two-stress and brought 94 percent (!) His pasBVBs to the man - sheer incredible odds for a striker.
They work a lot with deep runs, with whom they create spaces for others, analyzed hummels apart from the second leg. Haller agreed and stated: If we were in the possession of the ball, they were not very aggressive. This also had many freedoms.
These free spaces must take the Dortmund to the guests on Wednesday. Starting with Hummels and / or Akanji, the Haller disrupted this time before the ball acceptance and thus rob him possibility to be not only executers and preparers, but also ball distributors.
Marius Wolf / Marin Pongracic vs. Antony

Like last against the 1st FC Cologne, Marco Rose will probably return to a triple chain again this time to have five players in the backward movement, which take care of the AJAX offensive. The thing with the four-chain started in Amsterdam therefore completely out of the rudder, because Nico Schulz was completely overwhelmed against right outside Antony.
The Brazilian was at the end of four goals shots, two goalschutschlagen and their own goal. As often as he could not stop Dortmund other AJAX players only with a foul (3). This also shows how intrangling Antony was for the black-yellow defensive in the first leg.
How Rose wants to stop the 21-year-old this time is not clear yet. But it is very conceivable but that he holds two opponents on him. This task could be imposed Marius Wolf and Marin Pongracic. You might not bring Schulz tempo with (which has played a role in Amsterdam), but they are at least statistically the significantly better dual-fighters.
With the hedging by Pongracic, Wolf Antony can disturb early, preventing the approach in the approach and give Pongracic in the last line a possibly decisive advantage.
Jude Bellingham vs. Edson Álvarez
In the first leg, the young Englishman was still one of the fewer bad Borussen. But his normal shape did not bring Bellingham on the lawn. He was always lacking halfway to bother the Dutchman either crucially in the game structure, or to conquer a ball and to initiate a dangerous attack.
Bellingham did not convince against Ajax
Álvarez was not rarely the player at which Bellingham s efforts came to succumb. The clearer did not play unobtrusively, but was always present in the dangerous rooms enough to suffocate the black-yellow attacks in the approach.
With own possession, the Mexican could also distribute the balls to lust and mood. His 92 percent pass quote was also possible because he was put under pressure from Bellingham and Co. too rarely. That must not happen to the Dortmundern again.
Here is a key to success, because if Ajax can raise his pasBVB and position game again without a large resistance, Borussia threatens the next sensitive slap.
