The 5-3 triumph over Empoli that took them through to the UEFA Youth League last 16 has been put to the back of their minds. “We’re now fully focused on the Bundesliga game away to Wuppertaler SV and want to continue our successful run,” assured Borussia’s U19 coach Mike Tullberg.
The A-Junior Bundesliga West leaders will travel to Sportplatz Uellendahl on Sunday (kick-off 11:00 CET), where they will take on the side currently in 10th, who already have four wins this season. Compared to the away game in Tuscany, BVB will be without Soumaila Coulibaly (back with the U23s) and Abdoulaye Kamara (ankle injury). Jonah Husseck, who has recovered from his corona infection, is set to make a return to the squad.
Next Friday (18 February), BVB have scheduled a friendly against FSV Frankfurt which will take place behind closed doors. (wiwi)
