German-spanish festival – low schwarmt

German-Spanish festival - low schwarmt

Joachim low is also already dreaming of the german-spanish champions league games. Never before in the 57-year history of the most important european cup competition have two german clubs reached the semifinals.

The bundesliga now faces a showdown with spanish giants FC barcelona and real madrid for supremacy on the continent. Before the draw for the preliminary round on friday in nyon, low was looking forward to and over the "exciting constellation, which for me is also proof that very modern, extremely well-organized football is played in these two countries.".

A situation that also roughly reflects the balance of power at national team level. "At the moment, german and spanish soccer are clearly the number 1 in europe, and it’s no coincidence that the four teams are in the semifinals," bayern president uli hoeneb said after the convincing 2-0 win at juventus turin. "Germany and spain – what a semifinal!", tweeted national player and real strategist mesut ozil. The spanish sports paper "marca" wrote: "now is the opportunity to clarify who is leading the dominance."Spain’s national team had last beaten the germans in head-to-head duels at the european championships in 2008 and the world cup in 2010.

Hoeneb wishes for a win on the way to the final match on 25. May’s next opponent, BVB, at wembley stadium in london. "I would have preferred dortmund in the semifinals. But if we were to play madrid or barcelona first, we wouldn’t get our pants flapping," said the bayern boss, referring to the supposedly weakest semifinalists BVB. But the borussians were also very attack-minded after their 3:2 last-minute win over malaga. "The past few years have shown that we can definitely win a game or two against munich". So uli hoeneb shouldn’t feel too confident," BVB boss hans-joachim watzke teased in the "welt" newspaper.

Dortmund’s coach jurgen klopp added mischievously: "i think it’s pretty cool that we’re now wish-less."For BVB, this is not necessarily the case with bavaria, nor with barcelona, nor with real, by the way. The coolest thing about the whole story is that we are in the pot."

Thanks to its tremendous upswing in the recent past, BVB has certainly earned its reputation as a fearsome opponent for bayern. Dortmund had snatched the championship trophy away from ligacrosus twice in the previous two seasons, and once the DFB cup. This season, munich halay made up for the damage with their class in the bundesliga and the cup. It would be unthinkable if BVB were to knock out bayern in the champions league semifinals. That would be for the FCB the pure horror. Klopp was happy to accept hoeneb’s statement: "I’m always grateful when I’m given any ideas. The 1:0 (last in the cup) against us seems to have taken the respect away."

At least bayern coach jupp heynckes held back with provocative statements after two 2-0 quarterfinal victories against juve. The 67-year-old said he was looking forward to the draw in a "relaxed and relaxed way". "Any of the four teams can win the champions league," said heynckes, who was determined to make up for last year’s final defeat before leaving the club this summer.

"I don’t have a preference, and i don’t think you should have one either," he stressed – but if necessary, they will also stand up to FC barcelona. In view of his long time in spain, he is not even worried about being on the same team as lionel messi for years, insider heynckes asserted. "I know FC barcelona like the back of my hand, better than my team perhaps, because i have always watched barcelona over many years. That’s why I know the playing philosophy, the system, the tactics, all the players."

In an ideal case, a german final would have been possible for the bundesliga. In the history of the european cup, this has only happened once before, in the 1979/80 season, when eintracht frankfurt beat borussia monchengladbach in the UEFA cup. The special attraction of two german-spanish duels in the semifinals lies in the question: how big is the lead of the supposed superiority of spain at all?? Dutch ex-goalkeeper ruud van nistelrooy, who will make the draw, has it in his hands. "The fight is also a colossal duel between two countries," wrote the "marca" once before and found: "spain vs. Germany 2:2: let’s see who calls the tune here! Real, barca, bayern and dortmund battle for hegemony in european soccer."
