Borussia’s (Dortmund) captain Marko Royce has been fined for two matches because of his red card in the past match with Schalke 04 (2 : 4) from the Bundesliga. The attacker was expelled in the second half for an acute entry into the opponent’s feet. For a similar offense, his teammate Marius Wolf was also eliminated, but his sanction was bigger – three fights. The club accepted the penalties and will not appeal them.
Until the end of the championship, there are only three rounds, which is a serious problem for veterans. The team pursues Bayern (Munich), which has a 2-point lead. In these three last collisions, Dortmund guest Werder (Bremen) accepts Fortuna (Düsseldorf) and hosts Borussia (Mönchengladbach).
