Those were the problems against Leverkusen

The day after the bitter 5-2 home slap against Bayer Leverkusen, the BVB stars were licking their wounds. Left-back Raphael Guerreiro explained how the black and yellow want to react to the significant home defeat.

“It’s not easy to sleep when you lose a game like that at home by conceding five goals,” admitted the Portuguese YouTube channel of BVB.

Like his teammates, Guerreiro also put in an extremely poor defensive performance and had major problems with the Werkself counterattacking against Karim Bellarabi.

According to the defender, Leverkusen clearly deserved the win: “We played really badly yesterday. The problem was that Leverkusen were very dominant with the ball and really good at switching games,” explained the BVB regular.

At the same time, the 28-year-old evoked the fighting spirit of his Dortmund team: “We have to look ahead and unfortunately that happens. […] We have to work even harder because it’s not over yet.

BVB nine points behind FC Bayern

In the short term, he must continue to work with his teammates to finally get a grip on the sometimes blatant defense weaknesses. “When you concede five goals at home, it’s very tough,” said Guerreiro. Overall, BVB have already conceded 36 goals in the Bundesliga as second in the table. Even FC Augsburg, 16th in the table, got less (35).

Despite an immense burden on leaders FC Bayern Munich after 21 match days, the 2016 European champions don’t want to give away the championship race, as Guerreiro emphasized on Monday: “Now there are nine points on FC Bayern, but it’s not over yet. We have to trust in our work and our quality.”
