… There is some serious voodoo going on in Bielefeld. And I mean the serious, hardcore kind. There has to be. Bayer went down 2 – 1 to die Blauen in yesterday’s match, thereby extending the hold Arminia Bielefeld has over the Werkself. I couldn’t find a working stream, so I was left making incoherent noises of despair and horror as I followed the live-ticker. To add insult to injury, Sascha Dum was red-carded towards the end of the match.

This is significant as the Bavarian Empire comes to the BayArena next week and they’re certainly on a roll.

U-19 Nationalmannschaft: Nils Texeira (Captain, defence), Richard Sukuta-Pasu (forward)

U-17 Nationalmannschaft: Gerrit Nauber (defence), Niko Opper (midfield)

U-16 Nationalmannschaft: Andre Mandt (midfield), Luca Dürholtz (midfield), Nick Bresevac (forward)
