GIE vs DOR: Gießen is in an upcoming Club friendly game against Dortmund at Waldstadion on July 13.
Gießen last played a match, exactly a month ago against Hessen Kassel and emerged victorious with ease. Nejmeddin Daghfous provided the perfect kickoff for Gießen. He scored two back to back goals in two minutes and was followed by a beauty by Hendrik Starostzik to make it 3-0 before the first half.
The following half wasn’t as impressive for Hessen Kassel as Robin Urban’s only goal ended as a consolation goal and ended in a 3-1 win for Gießen.
However, Dortmund is playing months after their loss at the Champions League Quarter Final against Manchester City. Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham got his side in the lead with an early goal. The nervous City side breathed a sigh of relief in the second half after equalising the score courtesy of Riyad Mahrez
As the match progressed, Phil Foden gave a fitting reply and made it 2-1 for Manchester City. With that, they made it comfortably into the Semi-Finals on a 4-2 aggregate. The city further went on to lose the final against Chelsea by a 1-0 margin.
