After Dortmund against Bremen in The DFB-Pokal should be a model for Europe

this Wednesday, the Uefa Executive Committee, the highest body of European football Association is advising that at its meeting in Rome on the away goals rule may be abolished. Who has more away goals and the game achieved to take place in the future. In the future, the winner must have shot probably a total of more goals than the opponent.

This may be a nice cosmetic attempt to make in the knockout rounds of the Champions League and the Europa League, the output is a little more open. If the Uefa officials want to give your competitions more voltage, you need to take just the DFB-Cup as a model - shown by the excellent match between Borussia Dortmund and Werder Bremen on Tuesday evening once again impressive.

From simple rules arises, the great fascination

In that game, it was all or nothing. The winner advances, the loser is out. So easy the situation was, so much drama. Because in a single game the underdog has a much greater chance to beat the favorites. Even if he has to play away from home as Werder Bremen.

there Is only one decisive game will be less tactical manoeuvring. So, the Bremen were encouraged to think out of clever ideas, in order to achieve League-table leader in goals (as in the case of Milot Rashicas 1:0 after a free kick) and not to walls only. And so the people of Dortmund are encouraged to not only rely on a flash of genius from Marco Reus (1:1), but to continue their offensive force (as in 2:1 by Christian Pulisic and 3:2 by Achraf Hakimi). Because the Bremer knew, however, that they could still hope on the penalty shoot-out, played it more to the front and were shooting through the goals from Claudio Pizarro and Martin Harnik, and the successful penalty rewarded for it.

The DFB-pulls Cup all of its fascination from these simple rules. The only reason it comes to spectacular duels between Dortmund and Bremen. And the only reason to defeat dwarves like Heidenheim giants such as Leverkusen. Because in a game everything would be decided.
