The Borussia Dortmund U17s claimed the comfortable victory they had been expected to away to SV Lippstadt 08 in the Bundesliga West on Saturday, winning 5-0 thanks to braces scored by Bradley Fink and Ken Mata before substitute Bekir El-Zein added a fifth. "It was a really good way to round off the English week," said a delighted head coach Sebastian Geppert.
Meanwhile, an under-pressure U19 squad desperately need a win when they face Arminia Bielefeld in Brackel on Sunday (kick-off 11:00 CET) if they want to stop the teams at the top of the table from pulling away. Coach Michael Skibbe's squad is ravaged by injury, with Immanuel Pherai, Niclas Knoop, Lloyd Kuffour and Ansgar Knauff all definitely set to miss out and with question marks hanging over the involvement of Mert Göckan and Giovanni Reyna.
