christmas comes a couple of days early this year for life stick to our top of the table at the winter break for the 1st time ever a seasonal kid store of new york was at marginally predictable. if you have to leave including position at least. most of the things you did well. it's christmas time and there has been a lot of gift giving buyers have seeded points goal or already the season which has at least made the bundesliga much more exciting place the pace to much festive cheer from him. jim potter now back. isn't even in mice is almost as mundane. a surprise package under the christmas tree are mentioned plucked out of the 2nd place team at the mid-season break has gone on to win the title 9 times in bundesliga history to the falls have a real chance. now it's christmas enjoy those 2 weeks and. then maybe you keep going to. time to look forward to christmas and the winter break but this yuletide
will be one of mixed emotions for dortmund as they ponder how to stop throwing away coins as well bitch who goldfish believe the ball indeed the winter champions are neither buyer nor dortmund welcome to kick off. the year ago dortmund were clear at the top of the table but 2019 is not unkind to the black and yellow those at the end of the 1st half of the season there are 7 points off the lead despite their quality squad dogman have dropped too many points in fact from winning positions they've let a love and point slip the coach is all too aware of the problem. such as it's unbelievable the points we've lost. believe a goal. dortmund have 12 points fewer than at this stage last term this comes
despite strengthening significantly in the close season they began the campaign with a clear goal the title. although dog once football is often easy on the i playing like this won't help them win the championship. against half an arm the game panned out like so many for daughter on this season they dominated their opponents with their class repeatedly shining through and matteo gazza standing in for injured captain marco voice grabbed the opener on 17 minutes i thought months continued to pile on the pressure and produced a wave after wave of attacks particularly from the right hand side ashraf hakimi head his chances. as did target in the 39th minute. but that precious 2nd goal proved evasive. sometimes
a team are just unlucky or come up against a good goalkeeper like part of a bomb and. dortmund lead one know what the break but it should have them a lot more. does is them hide it stupid that has to be said clearly we haven't we had the chances to score a 2nd goal a 3rd even 10 and 5 we should have crossed the poll more rather than half shooting or those all. perhaps the immaturity of the team was to blame what a more experienced hakimi have set up a teammate here. or perhaps lucien father's decision not to recruit another center forward in the summer as part of the problem some fairly straight forward chances went begging. we had so much attacking verb i think we had something like 8 corners to none but our finishing was poor. and so
dortmund snatched defeat from the jaws of victory they gave away what seemed to be a nailed on 3 points on 79 minutes a daniel levelled with half an himes 1st real chance. look at those faces there not the faces of title winners. just like against leipzig in the 33 draw last week dortmund lost control of the game within the space of a few minutes. and they come of age with the winner for half an eye i'm in the 87th minute. and again the leakiest defense among the blunders league as top teams conceded 2 goals out of nothing. within 8 minutes and thought man had somehow surrendered a game they should never of lost points yet again through. no way. if they
ramp up we have fewer points than we should have from the last 2 games we have one point instead of 6 we've been sloppy in the 1st half of the season after filling the last 4 or more can guess how many points we've lost stupidly lost that's going to cost us dearly. the mid-season break is upon us time for dortmund to regroup and say goodbye to a cursed 2019 somehow they have to try to move forward and stop being so consistently inconsistent. young man who has exploded onto the scene josh was e.x.c. 8 minutes played a touch of the ball and 2 goals scored. those are the fruits of his 1st 2 games for
byron munich just like last week against 5 working rescue to win for the champions against both scored again just a minute after coming on and with his 1st touch. christmas fairy tale stuff from byron the 18 year old dutchman with a yuletide miracle right on cue. problems do remain though the variance cannot be happy with the 1st half of the season it's their worst in 9 years their 3rd in the table. but i haven't seen click button to see much more relaxed and on saturday they again passed 70 percent of possession but points have still gone astray. let's check the stats former coach nico kovacs had a points per game ratio of $1.00 with flick it's $2.00. but without the xerox effect
it would be $1.00. there are still big gaps of baron's defense and opponents are getting chances. spork were not cool headed enough to take advantage. of. the shall victorious so close to scoring just before the half time whistle. baron have also been hit by a raft of injuries this season. having martinez became number 7 his replacement jerome boateng was the only recognized 1st team player on the bench. it was looking like both sport might manage a draft thomas move that arrived too late here. while continued likewise then fail to find the net. i. with few options flick wrote the dice and turned to you know who on 85 minutes. there's a reason why is it c.
has 35 on his back. is not meant to be in the 1st team yet he's just a kid at 18. but he was again the savior one nil to byron i however we have for joshua. the teenager would also turn out for the reserve team a day later but here's some parents christmas was already made. for man one noir zerg see is becoming a cult hero. to you he's a positive guy out of the same time quite shy as you so young. out on the pitch the shows what he's made of as we've seen in the last 2 games. in the senate. and the joshua effect has a broader impact to parents' relief allowed sayres to now play to make it to no later in. the game was typical of fire in the season dominant but sometimes struggling to convert that supremacy. see until when. we see the last
2 losses against japan leverkusen put us behind but apart from the things we played good football and now the last couple of games showed character to come back and i think the race is still opened. we would have liked to hear from 60 but byron are keeping him incommunicado. his impact has been huge though the when byron confirmed flick his coach until the end of the season his bosses are all smiles. transit is doing a good job we're very happy with the development of the team and how we communicate so openly it's very pleasing. flick has conjured up a youth player who can make a difference his faith in super sub-zero is quite possibly the best argument for him staying. fired celebrate with lots of christmas cheer the champions may only be 3rd at mid-season break but they are above dortmund and
will be raring to go for the 2nd half of the campaign. in 5th took on freiburg in 6 the would have imagined that before the season started at the halfway mark they are both perhaps overachieving but wanted to head into the break on a high. voltage dominated early on with what said our especially influential. $12.00 with benito rahman and there was the opening goal after 26 minutes. to stanch tice vyborg just couldn't get going but that changed 10 minutes after half time the video assistant referee spotted a foul ball in the area. as paris and converted to make it 11. he has now the club's joint record store.
chang hong kong was that it 1st unfortunate for freiburg but his luck changed when memoranda brought him down. in chance of grief and stepped up to take this one super cool. to one to freiburg. shall coach david wagner needed a plan and fast it was looking like a very undeserved defeat. substitute after makushi was he answered his goal 10 minutes from time sealing a draw we conceded 2 penalties the serve penalties but the situations we gave too easy way this is a little bit. of what i have to moan about anything else i think was quite good in the end both teams and for the christmas holidays in good spirits.
after the 5 nil triumph and braman mind entertained lead vocals and in fine form they continued where they left off with some excellent play but this time the finishing touch was missing. 20 minutes from the labor corps and when bell received a 2nd booking but instead of wilting 10 than they were close and shrugged off the setback. stoppage time they snatched the points thanks to look us out to go smash and grab a boy and. derek braman are in a real mess while cologne are suddenly on a high. the hosts took the lead from their 1st big chance on court above with a 1. 39 minutes gone a win would put them 3 points above graeme in the table. next to bottom visitors pushed but it was all in vain. new come on coach marcos disto has now
picked up an unexpected 9 points in 8 days the billy goats are clear of the relegation zone and could now enjoy the festive period. fortuna dusseldorf were also looking to take advantage of breman shocking form against promoted on berlin the home side broke the deadlock proven henning's on 38 minutes what a strike that was. but coach freetime phone could do the job wasn't done. shortly after the restart when you and grabbed that deserved equaliser through pounds on the game was certainly up for grabs. and the winner came in stoppage time doesn't dos ever told me unleashing us more of being shot that flew off the post and into the net. fortunate with good fortune
just in time for christmas q some extra special celebrations as they climb out of the automatic drop zone football's just child's play sometimes. bottom side part of born needed a christmas boost in their clash with time tough to frankfurt. the fireworks before kick off ended up being matched inside the stadium. the struggling visitors looked jaded and underdogs padded born were ready to pounce i still had made some beauties only rocket put on a born one mil ahead. but it takes a lot to get patted on coach jeff unbound got excited even though frankfurt had not won in 6 games.
just before the break about a patter born doubled their lead courtesy of sebastian shawn allow. the host had a real chance of just a 3rd win in the league this season. but at patton point peaked too early they had a full 2nd have to endure a possible frankford onslaught. and it came at eventually frankfurt called one back through pass doest. his 4th goal of the leak campaign. in the end got a born got over the line precious 3 points for christmas which will fuel hopes that they can escape the drop. the. glove box for visitors to the capital but had no real chance of taking top spot because of a vastly inferior goal difference to leipsic. and that shouldn't take away from
what has been a great 1st half of the season for the polls their best since the 1970 s. they even lead the pack for 7 match days but are they able to mount a real tilt for the title. their biggest strength is defense only 18 goals conceded that's the joint lowest number in the current season cancer berlin we're going to have their work cut out. glad also threatened sporadically. going close here in the 39th minute but generally the visitors didn't show enough against the team and 12 place to. the finish and a bit of guile were lacking to hum has 6 goals this term to top the scoring ranks but it wasn't to be his day. even though we want to have more and we are young we need to do more as well he didn't get our search not our best performance today and now we come to this point that we have 1st. like
a constant really consumed weeks in the in the futures. coach marco who was one of the austrian league the last 2 seasons with so it's pork but to win the german league his side will have to win these sorts of away games they're the best home team in the league but in 8 away games they want only 4 to leipsic 6. play to work on in 2020. what might help is that out of both the german cup and europa league. they can concentrate on the buddhist they get in the 2nd half of the season. but in berlin could easily have lost. your game klinsmann's had to had chances to win they've stabilized under the germany legend with 8 points from the last 4 matches. on bishan is to climb up as soon as possible in the
table and and then also all start to play a more taking a more. entertaining type of football right now it's more defensive side of it ended nil nil here to head into christmas the happier the 3rd game in a row without conceding. gladbach on the other hand no they should have produced more an attack their elevated position in the table has raised expectations possibly too high they're still a work in progress. in the zone and i have to say the team of worked hard and we've had a good 1st half of the season when you're now after a few days' rest we have to get back out and show we want more when i'm from melbourne. wanting more is the right answer who is this team have to buck up and buckle up because here come the winter champions.
could this be the season for rb leipsic with byron and dortmund struggling this is the chance for the red bull back team. might not be particularly loved across germany but new champions come may would be welcomed by many people dislike of fans . so what suggests likes it really can do it. the one they have to move out of with 18 calls and 7 assists so far. and the 23 year old is getting better and better. byron swap at 11 off skiis only one goal ahead of him in the bundesliga scoring charts. lights it also have the most prolific overall attack in the league they look more dynamic than last season and opponents are getting more desperate to stop them i don't worry it looks worse than it was. but at home against in-form out spark plug 6
suffered an early shock on 8 minutes. but no it's not me and neither that's no i don't forget our sport had won 5 of their last 6 games. but like i say in contrast to dortmund right now seem to have the medal to recover from such setbacks recessed about a half time that we need a patient on and play the same style are going to 1st serve and then the girls will come on their own in the 2nd half of pressure get higher and higher and they always have the feeling that. you can score and get the lead. midway through the 2nd half light signal levels. can at lima with the ball. like have all the right ingredients onerous with. serious financial clout
a top infrastructure and one of the world's best young coaches. the bad press is uli are now goals man's hallmark just like gautam and under your can clap. there is another big reason for leipzig being genuine title contenders this season they have a classic target man up front 5 czech international patrick she committed to one of the best death goal in only 8 games for lights and. his edition has made life 6 squad in the complete. the but will it be enough for the title. in the winter i mean nothing so. we have to continue like this also in next year and we'll see in the summer. tempo is also key to this leipsic teen they can be
devastating when switching to attack. using force then with a final goal 31. this season they're flying but like 6 rivals will also worry that they haven't even reached their full potential yet. many of the players are still in their early twenty's and their coach is only a little bit older. looking forward to improve my team and to get better and to play nearly also a good 2nd half a season like we did in the 1st set of barbi leipzig or in the last 16 of the german cup and the champions league and sit top of the bundesliga for the winter break what a delightful christmas present. so here's a look at those results away from the victims part of born and the. it worth their
3rd point of the season made those christmas bones jingle meanwhile it's almost the case of all mom bells ringing at daughter march but now a few firsts from this season. this was the 1st of 465 goals so far this season scored by who else all that levon d'arcy yet again the league's leading striker. but the most assists came from a man many have written off thomas miller with a love and. meanwhile can you guess which 2 sides have the best defensive record we know about glass but both borg are tied with them with just 18 goals conceded. the down let's sneak a peek at the end of the year table. so leipzig right at the top in the last 10 years the winter champions have gone on to win the title 7 times by our north
3rd dortmund are level on points with shy of it's set to be out so early in the 2nd half of the season. and in the 2nd half of the table part of born are still bottom but braman in frankfurt have slid deeper into trouble meanwhile cologne are surging but will leave you were so league leaders. of the 29000 winter champions are the light saying they don't look as happy as they should be but it is only halfway through the season. their mascot really looks ready for a christmas party while like 6 coaches keeping his cool. bit of money that i get so i would assume says he is going to have them into the good times and more defensive lines it believes the way of the mid-season break for the 1st time in the club's short history. you don't get to. excited despite christmas crackers like this one
i. care for the mother and son thing is so the from that moment in this moment i think i am not saying that i mean there is still the old the sea the body footballers are taught to keep their feet on the ground but surely leipsic can dream up little this christmas after all they didn't really exist just 10 years ago and are now on top of the bundesliga seasons greetings and a happy new year kick up. the be.
