Mikel Merino is Newcastle's fifth signing of the summer.

Newcastle have signed midfielder Mikel Merino from Borussia Dortmund on loan for the season.

Dortmund can't be overconfident against giant slayers Sportfreunde Lotte

Matthias Ginter had one of his toughest games against Hertha Berlin but may get a chance at redemption in the German Cup.

DORTMUND, Germany -- On Tuesday night, Borussia Dortmund will travel to Osnabruck for their makeup game with Sportfreunde Lotte in the quarterfinal of the German Cup. Originally, the match was supposed to take place on Feb. 28, but was called off due to the "unplayable condition" of the pitch in Lotte after snowfall. The German FA decided that the match will take place at VfL Osnabruck's Stadion an der Bremer Brucke to guarantee that the match won't have to be called off again due to precipitation.

Dortmund's 'fringe players' to be called into action at stingy Hertha Berlin

DORTMUND, Germany -- After Wednesday's resounding 4-0 win over Benfica that saw Borussia Dortmund reach the quarterfinals of the UEFA Champions League and lifted spirits altogether at the club, one of the Bundesliga's most unthankful tasks awaits the Ruhr side: a trip to Berlin's Olympiastadion.

Hertha Berlin aren't known to grab headlines for their spectacular and entertaining games at their home stadium because "spectacular" and "entertaining" would be a stretch to describe Hertha's pragmatic...

Dembele, Dortmund run Wolfsburg ragged amidst partial stadium closure

Dortmund, Germany -- It was an odd vibe in the Westfalenstadion as the famous Yellow Wall remained a grey one on Saturday in Borussia Dortmund's 3-0 win over VfL Wolfsburg, due to the exclusion of 25,000 Dortmund fans who usually sit in the South Stand. The German FA issued the ban for repeated misconduct by Dortmund fans, who attacked Leipzig fans outside of the Westfalenstadion on February 4.

Despite all the talk about the empty stand, there were also 90 minutes of football to be played. VfL...

Tuchel, Dortmund short-handed for trip to bottom Darmstadt

With a long injury list following a taxing mid-week cup fixture, Thomas Tuchel will send out a makeshift lineup vs. Darmstadt.

"The tactical aspect might not play as big of a role as the mental aspect," Thomas Tuchel told Friday's news conference ahead of Borussia Dortmund's trip to Bundesliga bottom side SV Darmstadt. 

It was Tuchel's way of saying that the opposition is not to be underestimated. Darmstadt are the epitome of a trap game, as 17 other Bundesliga sides are secretly adding in all six points against the league minnows over the course of the season.
