Düsseldorf Borussia Mönchengladbach lost the final of the Telekom Cup against FC Bayern in a narrow penalty shootout. Fortuna secured third place against Hertha BSC. We will keep you up to date in our live blog.
Tomorrow the Telekom Cup will take place in Düsseldorf. For Robert Lewandowski from Bavaria the perfect dress rehearsal before the start of the second half of the Bundesliga.
In the semi-final of the Telekom Cup, FC Bayern Munich has to deal with Fortuna Düsseldorf. Depending on the course of the tournament, either Hertha BSC or Borussia Mönchengladbach will wait. Whatever the outcome, Robert Lewandowski is looking forward to the two games. “For us this is the next training session and the last phase in which we can still train a little bit, for speed and also for feeling,” said the Pole to the club’s own TV station.
The momentum from tomorrow’s games should ideally be taken into the game against TSG 1899 Hoffenheim. “I hope that the whole week goes very well and you can see our top form on Friday”, the striker added. After all, the record champion is still waiting for a race to catch up, which basically doesn’t allow any more missteps. Especially not in the first compulsory match of the new year.
