Quite the expression of Marco Rose did not fit to record and spreadsheets. We are very happy with the three points, he accounted for the 3-1 victory against Mainz 05, through which he was the first coach of Borussia Dortmund with five league home windings.

His team Be really well received in the game, Fast a beautiful gate shot and first felt everything always fails, even if we were a bit driving now and then . Overall, it was a decent game over 90 minutes , a deserved victory and thus a good start to the next phase .

Brandt: We need to act clever

So far so good. But the fact that BVB had to tremble the leadership as so often this season in the final phase still around the previously sovereign leadership, annoyed the coach. In the second half, Mainz was active. With the 2: 0 we actually had the necessary peace, but make life again, but that s unnecessary. That also saw Julian Brandt so: We have to act clever. Especially when we lead 2: 0.

Similarly, Sebastian Kehl reflected the game after one night. Of course we were very happy, even though yesterday may not come over for everyone, says the license stationer the Marco Rose on Sunday: The people in the stadium were thrilled that they have seen a victory again, we are at the top of the table have brought three points against unpleasant Mainz. That s very positive. Just given the now coming English weeks: It was very important to go to the next fully packed phase with a victory, that will be an intensive time.

Rose relieves Hummels knee

But even Kehl called the restriction: We also do not overlook that we can do some things better. The fact that it was finished in the end again, also employs the future sports director: If we could choose it, we would like to choose the games even clearer and decide earlier, but we have to work hard. The team set clear signs that you want to win until last , Against Leverkusen and Hoffenheim we were still able to decide the games for us for us .

Nevertheless, the 41-year-old would like to give up the tension in the final phase: We would definitely like to stop it, but there is not a clear reason for that. Coach Rose had to find the middle ground between conservation of individual power carriers and the best possible eleven on the course against Mainz. So Mats Hummels and Marco Reus were allowed to sit from the square. We have taken a bit more to Mats today because we want to relieve his knee a little far. Our captain has made many games. That s why we have rather roused Marco, explains Rose.

Erling Haaland, however, remained after his straight horny muscle blessing to the end in the storm. We needed him today even with opposing standards. Since he has tidied up properly to the end, says the coach and must laugh at the additional bonus himself: And by the way, he still makes a goal in the 95th minute. You can also use that.

Two Champions League and a Cup Week, the forces must be just divided, also to avoid the recurring wobblers in the final phase. Because the constitution of some players due to injuries, exhibitions on national teams and partly lack of preparation is sure an starting point , as Kehl believes.
