Telekom Cup: Borussia Dortmund beat HSV 1-0

HSV lost the game for third place in the Telekom Cup 0-1 against Borussia Dortmund on Sunday evening in Mönchengladbach. Jonas Hofmann scored the only goal of the game after 24 minutes.

Thirty degrees in the shade all over Germany. While the nation was in the grip of a heatwave, the Telekom Cup entered its second and final day in Mönchengladbach. HSV took on Borussia Dortmund in a game to determine third place. Before kick off Rothosen head coach Thorsten Fink told "My lads like the heat, so hopefully they will fight hard." The coach added that he wanted to see: "A better performance than the one in the 0-4 defeat to triple winners Bayern Munich the previous day." The team made a bright start to the game too. Nicely set up by new signing Hakan Calhanoglu, who made his first start for Hamburg, Per Skjelbred appeared out of nowhere and found himself one on one with Borussia keeper Mitch Langerak. The Norwegian could however only push his effort past the far post (3.). Fink's side continued to have the better of the early minutes, looking useful with attractive combinations: "During that period we could well have taken the lead", Fink told us after full time. 

After ten minutes the 2011 and 2012 Bundesliga champions and last season's losing Champions League finalists began to get more of a grip on the game. After first Rajkovic (13.) and moments later Skjelbred (14.) had made last ditch challenges to block efforts by Reus, the deadlock was finally broken on 24 minutes. A through ball split the Hamburg defence like a knife through butter  and in stepped Borussia youngster Jonas Hofmann to score after selling his marker a dummy. Fink said of the situation: "Just like yesterday we made to many mistakes in our build up play. It is something we must put right until the start of the season. We also must improve our freshness and confidence on the ball." 

The second half was mainly dominated by cult coach Jürgen Klopp's side, who lost their first game in the Telekom Cup 0-1 against host side Gladbach in the "battle of the Borussias" the previous day. Rothosen keeper Neuhaus did well to thwart Gündogan (31.), before Lasse Sobiech blocked an effort by Bender (37.). Shortly before the end HSV ventured out of their own half and Skjelbred struck a superb cross into the Dortmund box. Sadly neither Jacques Zoua or Petr Jiracek were able to convert it. After two defeats against "the two teams battling for the Champions league crown" (Kreuzer), HSV finished in fourth and last place in the mini-tournament: "It is not important", said Fink afterwards before adding: "Maybe a little dampener like this one at the right time will do my lads good." 

Bayern won the competition beating home side Borussia Mönchengladbach 5-1 in the final, through goals by Ribery, Lahm, Thiago, Robben and Müller. Luuk de Jong pulled a goal back for Gladbach on the stroke of halftime.
