The Winter Break just began for Borussia Dortmund and Fortuna Düsseldorf, who played their first game of 2019, after a few days training. Also the renewed facilities Marbella Football Center have been released in 2019, hosting the first game of the preseason.
Borussia started with a team consisting of starters such as Götze, Pulisic (recently signed by Chelsea), Piszcek, Guerreiro, Wiegl or Witsel. In the break Lucien Favre made eight substitutions and gave time to the Japanese Kagawa, Schmelzer or the promises Isak and Sancho among others.
The match was very entertaining. In the 14th minute, the team fromDüsseldorf went ahead by midfielder Stoger, but Phillip turned the game around with two almost consecutive goals (31 and 34).
Fortuna, who made 10 changes at halftime, was able to tie in the 67th by Kaminski, but Schmelzer, on the verge of the final whistle, gave the yellow and black team the victory.
A nice match, very clean, in which both teams made tests. Borussia will play again on Friday, when it will perform two matches, against Willem II in the morning and Feyenoord in the afternoon.
