Back to work: Three players to complete fitness test at a later date

Borussia Dortmund’s players had to complete a lactate threshold test as they began their preparations for the second half of the season. A few of them, however, missed the fitness test on Tuesday.
image Kevin Kampl also had to give blood samples.



In Adrian Ramos (strained thigh), Neven Subotic, Ciro Immobile and Erik Durm (all suffering from cold or flu symptoms) as well as Henrikh Mkhitaryan (torn thigh), a total of five players were unable to take part in the fitness test at the Helmut Körnig Indoor Athletics Facility.

Subotic, Durm and Immobile are expected to complete it on Saturday morning before the team leaves for their training camp, while Ramos will not be able to commence training within the coming days due to his thigh injury, but he will travel with the team to Spain.

Mkhitaryan is expected to start jogging again this week, while Sokratis, another long-term absentee, took part in Tuesday’s fitness test, even if he’s still having some “minor problems”, according to Jürgen Klopp who also welcomed back Marco Reus on Tuesday. If the healing process runs as it should, BVB’ s attacking star will return to full training during the eight-day training camp in La Manga.

The fitness test included six three-minute runs at six different speeds (10, 12, 14, 16, 18, and 20 kilometres per hour), with the players giving their maximum effort at the last level. Blood samples were taken from their ears by a team of sports scientists after each run and during the rest periods by a team of sport scientists.

The specialists will now examine the blood samples and measure them for accumulation of lactic acid. A high lactate concentration is usually a sign that muscles do not produce enough energy after high intensity work which can result in an over-acidification, with the muscles ceasing function as the worst-case scenario. The coaching staff will get the results of the fitness test within in the next couple of days, and based on the findings, each player will get a special fitness plan tailored to their needs.

“I’m full of anticipation,” said Jürgen Klopp on Tuesday, looking well-recovered following a 17-day Christmas break, as the team resumed training. On their first day back the players had to complete a lactate threshold test.

“My batteries are charged up again,“ said the BVB coach, adding: “I wasn’t happy about our situation, but about the fact that we were able to leave it behind during the break.” Coach and team are ready to attack again and started the new (football) year full of optimism and enthusiasm.

Among the squad was new signing Kevin Kampl about whom Klopp said, “He’s not expected to perform miracles, but we don’t mind him leading the way. We are happy to have him here. We are both sure that we will stay up, now we will have to convince others of it…”

The Dortmund coach has announced to put the team through a tough training schedule ahead of the Bundesliga restart on 31 January: “We have a huge schedule in front of us and we want to start the second half of the season in a good, positive mood.”

I hear nothing different than what was said before the season. "Everyone is fired up" and "batteries are full" etc. are just the same sentence you hear week in and week out. Not that any words will change the situation anyway, but this is just desperation to fill the news.

yeah of course it is. what can you say else when no single match has been played this year. the start into the new season will be decesive and i guess everybody knows it, but other teams like Freiburg, HSV, Bremen and Stuttgart (OMG, we are suddenly competing with such teams.. :shakepalm:) are reporting the same. "we are very focussed" "we will be well prepared" blah blah.

will be happy to see the first preseason matches and no more talking about how focussed everybody is..

BVB beat Sion 1-0 to win first friendly of the year

Borussia Dortmund have won the first friendly of the year 2015, beating first division side FC Sion 1-0 (0-0) in San Pedro del Pinatar on the fourth day of their winter training camp in Spain. The scorer of the winning goal was Jon Gorenc-Stankovic from BVB’s Under-23 side.

Borussia Dortmund began the game with a 4-1-4-1 formation, with new signing Kevin Kampl taking on a prominent role, pulling the strings in midfield. After being put through a tough training session earlier on Tuesday, the Black and Yellows looked visibly tired, yet they still managed to show their trademark pressing game on one or two occasions. After good work from Grosskreutz, Immobile had the first chance for BVB on 15 minutes, but saw his effort denied by the Swiss goalkeeper. Borussia then had a legitimate call for a penalty waved away after a foul on Dudziak, with the Under-23 full back having another good chance inside the box on 33 minutes when he saw his shot from 15 yards got blocked.

The biggest chance of the first half, however, fell to Sion, but Weidenfeller was on hand to keep out a shot from a tight angle with an acrobatic save (27 mins.).

BVB – for whom Durm had to pull out shortly before the game, while Sokratis and Reus were rested - made eight changes at halftime.

The first chance after the interval again came for Borussia, with 16-year-old Passlack going close with a shot with the outside of his boot. The only goal of the afternoon came from another BVB youngster. On the eve of his 19th birthday, Stankovic gave himself an early present when he stabbed home a Schmelzer corner on 59 minutes to put the Black and Yellows in front. Blaszczykowski had a chance to double the score 11 minutes from time but his effort from a narrow angle went just wide.

Borussia’s second game of their training week in Spain will be on Saturday (kick-off: 1630 CET) against Steaua Bucharest.

BVB 1st half: Weidenfeller – Piszczek, Ginter, Hummels, Dudziak – Sahin – Passlack, Kampl, Gündogan, Großkreutz – Immobile

BVB 2nd half: Alomerovic – Passlack, Subotic, Stankovic, Schmelzer – Kehl, Kirch – Dudziak (62. Harder), Jojic, Blaszczykowski – Immobile
Goal: 1-0 Stankovic (59.)

1-0 win over Romanian champions Steaua Bucuresti in another friendly yesterday, Blaszcykowski with the only goal of the game 7 minutes from time. Good to see him back and scoring again, he'll be a big boost to the team in the second half of the season as he brings something different to the table from all the other wing options. Almost a year ago since he got that injury and has faced plenty of issues getting fit since, but now it seems like he's back and finally ready to play.

Full highlights down below:

yeah, hopefully Kuba can have a positive impact. he certainly needs some time to find his old form but he is the type of player who i believe can fight back his way into the starting line-up in near future.
