Borussia Dortmund’s highly successful Asia tour will come to an end on Saturday, as the team will return to Dortmund after visiting Japan, Malaysia and Singapore. With an impressive 6-0 win over J-League’s Kawasaki Frontale and another formidable 6-1 victory against Malaysia’s champions Johor Southern Tigers, Thomas Tuchel’s side has created an appetite for more.
There is a tiny Revierderby ahead against Ruhrpott-rivals VfL Bochum to look forward to and also another promising match up against Champions League finalists Juventus, which should serve as a good indicator for BVB. Only a few weeks left until the next season finally starts and for Tuchel to iron out a few wrinkles.
Here are the tour dates for the following friendlies:
17.07. VfL Bochum – Kick off 20:00 CET (Rewirpowerstadion, Bochum)
21.07. FC Luzern – Kick off 19:30 CET (Swissporarena, Luzern)
25.07. Juventus – Kick off 19:05 CET (AFG-Arena, St.Gallen)
01.08. Real Betis – Kick off 15:30 CET (Stadion am Zoo, Wuppertal)
The friendly against Real Betis was announced on Friday and will take part two day’s after Borussia Dortmund’s first official match of the season. The first leg of the UEFA Europa League 3. Qualification round will take place on the 30.07., the opposition has yet to be determined.
