Mahmoud Dahoud will miss the BVB in the DFB Cup semi-finals. At 1-0 in Gladbach, he came into play better after a tactical change – and then flew off the pitch.
May only intervene in a possible final in the DFB-Pokal 2020/21: Mahmoud Dahoud (r.).
Shortly before the DFB Cup semi-finals were perfect, Borussia Dortmund had to survive a few dicey situations in Mönchengladbach on Tuesday evening, and they were outnumbered. Mahmoud Dahoud was kicked off the field with a yellow-red in the third minute of stoppage time because he stood in the path of Ramy Bensebaini in a BVB counterattack.
“That’s the annoying point today,” annoyed coach Edin Terzic after the 1-0 win over the dismissal and Dahoud’s suspension for the semifinals. His understandable assessment: “I found both yellow cards a little too hard, although you have to say that Mo already had one or the other foul game too much. We have to be honest.”
After around 20 minutes, Terzic exchanged Dahoud and Delaney
Dahoud had blossomed in recent weeks, and he was convincing again against his ex-club Gladbach – after an intervention by his coach. “We changed a bit after about 20 minutes. Mo and Thomas Delaney swapped positions because we wanted to accelerate the game a little better in this position,” said Terzic. Delaney had started on the six, Dahoud in the half-left midfield.
The move paid off. “Mo did it very well, especially in the second half, turned up two or three times really well, accelerated the game. We were then able to use the rooms that were offered to us. But that is also his quality, that he does it more often and shows even better. ” Dahoud will only have to watch the cup semi-finals, but that will only take place on May 1st or 2nd – just under two weeks before the final in Berlin.
