“They won 2-0 against Freiburg, who had previously beaten Leipzig 3-0.” And they beat Hertha 4-1 – while we could only draw 2-2. “
“They had seven or eight clear chances in the defeat against Mainz.”
Sporting director Micheal Zorc added:
“Dusseldorf has a clear plan, they know exactly what they can do, they are very dangerous especially in counterattack!”
