Borussia Dortmund kick off this weekend’s Bundesliga action on Friday evening, hosting FC Ingolstadt at the Westfalenstadion.
Matchday 8 of the 2016/17 Bundesliga season has Borussia Dortmund travelling to Bavaria to face FC Ingolstadt. Last year’s promoted side is in a rut in terms of results, having lost six in a row after earning a point on opening day at Hamburger SV.
On a rainy Saturday afternoon, Borussia Dortmund rode their luck more than once to get away with three points against promoted Ingolstadt. Tuchel was right in dubbing this match a “matter of patience” beforehand, as his side hardly got a foot on the ground with some of his key players missing.Yet, Borussia Dortmund managed to grind out a result, while US-boy Christian Pulisic made his first appearance in the Westfalenstadion alongside the unlikely return of Moritz Leitner.
