Tuesday’s friendly was won thanks to the goals of Ballack, Vidal (penalty) and Derdiyok.
Michael Ballack began losing quite a few balls in the first 20 minutes but then steadily improved. He scored a goal after a corner and gave the assist to Derdiyok’s goal.
It seems that our number “13”, is in a much better physical condition then at the start of the season. Heynckes (see Preview Dortmund game) and the fans yesterday watching the game confirmed this.
He should get at least 30 minutes against Mönchengladbach on Sunday.
