Fortuna Düsseldorf: Dawid Kownacki’s application for Gladbach | Sports

It reads worse than it is!

Fortuna lost 5-1 to Borussia Dortmund in the first test of the training camp. Daniel Thioune’s (48) team collapsed in the final minutes and conceded three more goals.

Top scorer Dawid Kownacki (25) scored the only goal from the point. Otherwise he was the best fortune.

Kownacki (changes free of charge in the summer) plays together with Kristoffer Peterson (27) in the storm – and is there immediately. First the Pole, whom Gladbach has on the slip (BILD reported), initiates the first Fortuna top chance with a header, then he smashes in the penalty kick to equalize in the meantime (7th). Passlack had previously put Dortmund ahead after a rebound (5′)

A little later, almost Kownacki’s big piece of cake: Peterson takes the ball from Dahoud. Kownacki falls the leather at his feet. The Pole shoots just behind the center line – but Kobel scrapes the shot off the line (12′).

In the build-up he lets himself fall again and again and picks up the balls. At the break he is allowed out after a strong 45 minutes.

Coach Daniel Thioune (48) starts in 5-3-2 and consistently plays with a back three. Matthias Zimmermann (30), Jordy de Wijs (27) and Christoph Klarer (22) form the defensive trio in the first round, after the break Andre Hoffmann (29), Tim Oberdorf (26) and de Wijs.

Fortuna almost with the lightning start: Kownacki puts his head down to Tanaka, who sees Karbownik in the penalty area. The Pole completes with the left, but Kobel saves (1st).

In return, Passlack meets Dortmund’s leadership. De Wijs’ attempt at clearance lands in front of his feet and the right-back hits the ball high into the left corner (5′).

After the brisk initial phase, the game flattens out. Appelkamp doesn’t hit the ball properly after a Zimmermann cross (21′), a little later Adeyemi pushes in at the far post to make it 2-1 for BVB (31′).

At half-time, Thioune cheerfully changes. Youngsters Fernandes, Geerkens, Vukancic also get playing time in the last 30 minutes. Böckle and Bunk come in later.

The highlight of the second half: Sebastien Haller came on in the 73rd minute and made his comeback after testicular cancer. Tim Oberdorf: “It’s a story that’s well above sport. You could also see today, regardless of whether it was teammates or opponents: everyone was happy with him and applauded. That’s how it should be – because there are more important things than football.”

Shortly after Haller came on, Schlotterbeck scored to make it 3-1, Donyell Malen scored twice before the end to make it 5-1 (86′, 88′). When they conceded the last goal, Kastenmeier didn’t look good.

Captain Hoffman: “It annoys me that we conceded three goals from the back. 1:5 sounds tough.”

Ginczek comments

Daniel Ginczek (31/) was the only field player who was not in the squad in the test against Dortmund. The striker, who is still ailing, nevertheless took part in the game – in an unfamiliar role. On the microphone he commented on the duel with the Bundesliga club. But he’s back for today’s morning session.

Matthias Wallenwein (38) will strengthen Fortuna’s scouting department in the future. The sports scientist worked for five years from 2016 to summer 2021 as a scout at Bayer Leverkusen. There he was responsible for England and South America. Most recently, he was chief scout at Lokomotiv Moscow.
