The title was decided following Dortmund’s loss to Bayern Munich on matchday 31, but Marco Rose’s side were still expected to beat Bochum at home in their subsequent outing.
The game showed the team’s deficiencies as they were good going forward but porous at the back and lost 4-3. Defensively, Dortmund haven’t been good enough, although they have already started solving those issues.
Die Schwarzgelben have already roped in Nicklas Sule and Nico Schlotterbeck, so they are expected to mount a stronger title defense next season.
Furth have already been relegated from the top division, but they will still be a dangerous side as they will play for pride in front of their own fans.
