Bundesliga Clubs Grab Pre-Season Wins Against Premier League Opponents

The Bundesliga Reign Supreme After Surprising Pre-Season Friendly Wins Against English Opposition.

Borussia Dortmund and Hamburg both grabbed impressive wins against Manchester City and Chelsea respectively. Dortmund beat the big spending Manchester City by a score of 3-1, while Hamburg came from behind and defeated Premier Leauge champions Chelsea by a score of 2-1.

Dortmund defeated this summer’s biggest spenders Manchester City quite emphatically, which is an ominous sign for the side from Lancashire. On the other hand, Dortmund head coach Jurgen Klopp will be delighted with his side’s form heading into the Bundesliga season.

Goals from Lucas Barrios, Shinji Kagawa and Robert Lewandowski were enough to put City’s lights out and consign them to four friendly defeats after five friendly matches. While City remain low on form and low on team spirit, Dortmund look ready for the season ahead.

Meanwhile, Hamburg defeated Premier League champions Chelsea with two late goals from Mladen Petric and Heung Min Son scoring for the Bundesliga side. Hamburg’s 7th-placed finish will be put out of the memory bank if they can continue this kind of form throughout the Bundesliga season and push for a Champions League berth. After beating the champions of England, albeit in a friendly, Hamburg will be full of confidence heading into the new season.
