Borussia's Bundesliga youth teams continued their preparations for the spring season with two friendly victories.

The U19s beat Werder Bremen, currently in second place in the Bundesliga Nord/Nordost, 1-0 in an intense match. The only goal of the game was scored by Jamie Bynoe-Gittens, who converted a penalty that he himself had won. Next up on the mid-season friendly list is the Wuppertaler SV senior team, who play in the Regionalliga, on Sunday (30 January).

The U17s won their first friendly back after a break of almost three months 6-1 against the SG Unterrath U19s. Sebastian Geppert's team fell 1-0 behind in the opening stages but ultimately came from behind to run out 6-1 winners. Having equalised via an own goal, Raul König (2), Alex Niziolek (2) and Bismark Quayson scored for BVB. (wiwi)
