    Reyna on the bench, Chandler starts.

    Kickoff is at 2:30 PM Eastern on FS2 and Fox Deportes.




    Coming into this, Dortmund sits 3rd in the Bundesliga, 4 points off Bayern at the top, while Eintracht is comfortably mid-table, at least 5 points out of Europe and 11 points clear of relegation.

    Hopefully Reyna gets 20 minutes or so, let's go!

    Frankfurt is in good form, so I doubt we'll see much of Reyna today. This may be a battle to the last minute.

    Eintracht are mid-table, BVB are playing at home, and are w/out Reus and Brandt as playmaking options. This was a good spot for Reyna's first start.

    If not him it should have been Gotze. I guess he doesn't trust him either. This is quite defensive just to get veteran leadership out there.

    Overreaction to last week w/ BVB on the road against a strong team and getting a rookie call against him. Suspected this would happen.

    Dortmund has defense issues, and Frankfurt is good at exploiting those.

    Whatever difference in the table, the Bumblebees have conceded one goal more than their guests today.

    Dortmund's defensive issues are more about individual breakdowns at the back as opposed to opponents possessing the ball or just running down their throat which stems from a weak defensive midfield. Guerreiro ain't exactly Jens Jeremies either.

    Busted attacking move falls to Piszczek who scores (!) with his left (!!) from outside the box (!!!).

    1-0 to Dortmund in the 33rd.

    Favre is so defensive in his mind set. Which is ironic because bvb are trash in the back.

    playing five in the back stunts their shape and they often get caught out. I’m amazed he’s lasted this long there.

    Considering Dortmund are leaking goals for fun, Favre should probably shore up his defensive strategy. I think it's ultimately preparing his team for PSG next week. If they aren't careful, PSG will put 5 past them.

    2-0.

    Frankfurt left the entire right side of their defense open on one Dortmund attack, but a lousy touch by Hazard allowed them to recover. Two minutes later, they do it again, but the pass goes to Sancho, who controls it perfectly and scores.

    Great play off the ball by Haland to open the space.

    Chandler, playing as the right winger, hasn't been involved in either goal. The actual right back, Toure, is playing like ********ing shit. Gently put, of course.

    The commentators are overhyping that Sancho goal, in my opinion. He's a great player, but that was a relatively simple finish. He had acres of space, and the one defender who had a shot at him just slid by for no apparent reason.

    Yeah, but he's English, so it's more impressive than if someone else did it, obviously.

    Haland tap-in, 3-0.

    This is one of the situations where Favre should be looking to get Reyna the most amount of minutes from this point on (as he hasn't). Low pressure w/ Dortmund up 3 at home. Build confidence in the lad. Ironically his significant minutes have come on the road protecting small leads or draws.

    And the commentators implying that Reyna is at Dortmund in part to sell jerseys in the US...

    English people love talking about "selling shirts" while completely failing to realize that selling shirts provides almost zero revenue for a club.
