Nevan Subotic feels while Dortmund got out to an early lead, Eintracht Frankfurt were clinical in the second half.

DORTMUND, Germany -- Before any of the journalists could nag Peter Bosz with their questions at Monday's news conference ahead of Tuesday's cup tie against third-tier side FC Magdeburg, press officer Sascha Fligge himself asked the Borussia Dortmund manager about the personnel situation, knowing the 53-year-old had positive news to announce.

"[Lukasz] Piszczek and Omer Toprak are unavailable," Bosz said, following up with: "[Sokratis] Papastathopoulos will return after his suspension, and if things...

TSV 1860 Munich out to enjoy revival of city rivalry in Bayern Munich clash

Despite a win over Celtic, Jupp Heynckes says Bayern still left much to be desired both offensively and defensively.

MUNICH -- Five decades ago, there was only one club worth talking about in Munich: TSV 1860. They were the best team in the city and a founding member of the Bundesliga thanks to their success in the 1963 Oberliga Sud that saw the country's football authorities -- reluctant to have two clubs from the same city -- leave Bayern out.

As Bayern were still making do with changing in wooden huts on Sabenerstrasse, "The Lions" starred in a European Cup Winners' Cup final at Wembley in 1965 (though they...

Dortmund must overcome stale play and fatigue to right ship vs. Frankfurt

Peter Bosz discussed Borussia Dortmund's disappointing week having lost to RB Leipzig and drawn against APOEL Nicosia in the Champions League.

DORTMUND, Germany -- "A win [in Frankfurt] would be good for the table and for the atmosphere," Borussia Dortmund manager Peter Bosz said at Friday's news conference ahead of Saturday's game. Yes, the atmosphere surrounding Dortmund has become somewhat gloomy after only one win in four games across competitions.

The season of a football club -- or any sports team to be true -- often is similar to the mood swings of a teenager. Just weeks ago, the Black and Yellows were celebrated for resounding...

If Mesut Ozil leaves Arsenal in January, which clubs would want to sign him?

As rumours continue to swirl about Mesut Ozil's future, Man United has reportedly become the top destination for the playmaker.
Stewart Robson and the ESPN FC panel talk Mesut Ozil and whether he can re-integrate himself into the Arsenal squad.

It's looking increasingly likely that Mesut Ozil will either leave Arsenal in January or for free next summer -- the latest rumour has seen him linked to Manchester United -- but the question for the Gunners now is how hard should they try to keep him?

Jose Mourinho is a fan of Mesut Ozil after their time together at Real Madrid. But there would be questions about whether or not Manchester United actually need him, especially given...

Bayern back on track, Leipzig fancy a European run, Dortmund's costly draw

Despite a win over Celtic, Jupp Heynckes says Bayern still left much to be desired both offensively and defensively.

Matchday 3 at last brought the first wins for the German contingent in the Champions League and underlined the recent return to form of RB Leipzig and FC Bayern Munich. For Borussia Dortmund, however, the 1-1 draw at APOEL has had the opposite effect: the Black and Yellows are beginning to wonder about their football's true quality in light of four unconvincing games (three defeats, one narrow win at Augsburg) on the trot.
