Raffael, the No. 9.5 who embarrassed Manuel Neuer

Manuel Neuer's blunder allowed Raffael to open the scoring at Bayern Munich on Sunday.

What are the chances of getting a birthday present from Manuel Neuer? Borussia Monchengladbach's Raffael Caetano de Araujo, known simply as Raffael by all in Germany, turns 30 on Saturday, and he should have plenty of cause to celebrate after the shock 2-0 win at Bayern Munich. The Bavarian giants lost a meaningful home league game for the first time since October 2012, with Raffael taking centre stage with a brace.

Both of the shots should have been routine saves for the Bayern goalkeeper, and...

Kevin Wimmer: Commanding centre-back could blossom at Tottenham

Kevin Wimmer has made 25 Bundesliga appearances for Cologne this season.

Background information:

Tottenham Hotspur have what is comfortably the worst defensive record in the top half of the Premier League. With backup options Younes Kaboul and Vlad Chiriches contenders to depart this summer, it is therefore unsurprising that the club have been connected with a number of defensive reinforcements. The firmest link came last week, with reports that they had agreed a deal for Cologne centre-back Kevin Wimmer.

The 22-year-old was born in the city of Wels, in northern Austria,...

Europa League still in play for Borussia Dortmund

The form of Marco Reus and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has given Dortmund fans reason to cheer in recent weeks.

Borussia Dortmund secured a nervy but vital 3-2 win on Saturday afternoon against Hannover, and in doing so, the Black and Yellows consoled the 10,000 travelling fans still reeling over the club's Champions League exit to Juventus last Wednesday. BVB remained in 10th place but are now only six points behind fifth-place FC Schalke. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who scored twice, was more optimistic than coach Jurgen Klopp afterwards, suggesting the Europa League spots are within reach.

Dortmund are...

Injuries may force Jurgen Klopp to experiment with Dortmund's XI

Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp says his side made it too easy for Juventus as the Italian outfit moved into the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals.

The hunt for Champions League glory came to a disappointing end on Wednesday night at the hands of Juventus, as Borussia Dortmund were abject and outclassed in a 3-0 drubbing. There is no time for condolences, though, as the drab Bundesliga routine is already looming.

Dortmund will travel to Hannover 96, who are in the midst of a nine-games winless streak. This marks a good opportunity for die Schwarzgelben to get back on track after three consecutive games without scoring. Seventh-placed Hoffenheim...

Leroy Sané scared Real Madrid and continues to shine for Schalke

UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE: Sane goal (57') Real Madrid 3-3 Schalke

The Scout's Notebook this week looks at one of the rising stars in the Bundesliga who gave Real Madrid a fright in the Champions League ...

Background Information

Champions League debuts don't get much better than the one Leroy Sané enjoyed against Real Madrid last Tuesday. Given his opportunity by an early injury to Eric Choupo-Moting, he produced a truly superb strike from the edge of the area to bring Schalke back to 3-3 in the middle of a pulsating match that so nearly saw them complete...

Giovanni Trapattoni's value to Bayern Munich was not all lost in translation

Giovanni Trapattoni showed a fiery temper during his time as Bayern Munich boss.

Many of you will have seen the footage. It's famous and hilarious even if you don't speak a word of German. It's enough to just watch the almost 59-year-old man in the red-and-white Bayern Munich sweater work himself into a temper tantrum.

Of course, if you do speak German it's priceless. Giovanni Trapattoni's news conference on the afternoon of March 10, 1998, lasted only three and a half minutes, but that was all he needed to become a staple on the country's late-night television shows and coin...
