Dortmund lose again. This time to a 10-man Augsburg squad. Players actually stayed after the match to talk with the fans and apologize.

To be fair, they scored before going down ten men, but wow did the boos ring out afterwards.  They mentioned that Rues, Hummels, and others will have their contracts voided should Dortmund be relegated.  Talk about a run on talent...wow

Couple of notes:

 

-Augsburg is in a Champions League spot!!!  This also means that only one Champions League team is currently sitting top four.  Both Europa teams (Wolfsburg and Gladbach) are currently top four while two UCL teams (Leverkusen and Schalke) are in Europa spots.  3-6 are only separated by two points.

-Hoffenheim is seventh, five points out of sixth, so things could be opening up a little between those that will be playing in Europe and those that will not be

-Werder Bremen was dead last going into the final Match Day before the break.  They then beat Dortmund before winning two straight to open the second half.  After earning fourteen points through sixteen games, they have tacked on nine straight points to jump from eighteenth to eleventh.  They also sit only three points out of seventh

-Mainz is one point behind Werder Bremen despite having a goal differential of +1 to Bremen's -10 

-Despite their troubles, Dortmund could jump to fourteenth this weekend with a win and some help

I just mean 26 minutes is a long time to not be able to get at least one goal. But yea, we could see a mass departure if they get relegated.

Yeah, they really looked asleep for most of the game.  Had some opportunities near the end and one they probably should have scored but they headed right at the keeper.

Took three matches but Bayern finally got their first win of '15, 2-0 at Stuttgart.  Alaba had a hell of a strike on a free kick.  One more match to get ready for UCL Round of 16, cannot wait!!!

Werder Bremen has moved from eighteenth to a tie for seventh in just four matches.  That is impressive.

 

In other news, Dortmund is currently sixteenth, where they would be in a relegation playoff.

Dortmund may be figuring things out. Feel behind in the first minute while hosting Mainz, then dominated the first half but still down 1-0 at the half. Scored two quickly in the second and almost immediately gave up an equalizer. Still managed to put two more home.

That was the type of match where they have given away points all season but they now have seven fields in two games.

I do want to see them relegated but if they had to pick things up doing so just before UCL returns is the best way to do it.
