Borussia Dortmund beat FC Porto 2-0 in the first leg of the UEFA Europa League round of 32 on Thursday evening in Signal Iduna Park.
The stage was set to “make Thursday our day,” as head coach Thomas Tuchel put it before the game. With the Europa League entering the knockout stages, BVB must make the competition more of a priority than it was during the first half of the season.
Borussia Dortmund just eked out a result against Hannover. Is their current form good enough to tackle the tough games against Porto in the Europa League and Bayer Leverkusen? Thomas Tuchel think so, but there is a hint of septicemic on this episode of the Yellowwallpod.
The luck of the draw wasn’t on Borussia Dortmund’s side on Monday, as they were drawn with FC Porto for the Round of 32 in the UEFA Europa League. It’s not a stretch to say Porto presented one of the toughest opponents Dortmund could have faced.
