1. FC Köln

At 1. FC Köln, in addition to the team, one player in particular is currently embraced by luck. We are of course talking about Davie Selke. The ex-Herthan apparently always knows where the goal is. He has scored three goals in the last two games and netted his first Bundesliga brace in more than five years in the 2-1 ‘Mini’ derby win over Bayer Leverkusen.

Cologne followed up the aforementioned success with a 5-2 attacking spectacle last Friday, so they finally secured their place in the league. After a moderate start to the second half of the season, the goats occupy a more than solid tenth place in the standings. If the transfer ban for the upcoming switch window is lifted now, things will get really rosy again in Kölle.

Feyenoord Rotterdam

If a master doesn’t melt in the heat, then who will? Feyenoord Rotterdam recently became Dutch champions for the first time in six years, breaking Ajax Amsterdam’s four-year reign. Luck is definitely out of the question here.

Because as the season approached, Rotterdam gave up half of the team. Top players like: Luis Sinistera (Leeds United), Tyrell Malacia (Manchester United), Marco Senesi (AFC Bournemouth) and Fredrik Aursnes (Benfica) have left the club. In total, hold on tight, there have been 26 starts before the start of the Eredivisie.

Those who didn’t jump the sinking ship went on to set a record season ablaze. In 32 league matches, Rotterdam have lost only once in 24 wins and seven draws.

Borussia Dortmund

Borussia Dortmund is currently hot for everything. Hot for titles, hot for wins and, above all, hot for goals. It has been clear for the last two days at the latest. In the 6-0 win over VfL Wolfsburg and the 5-2 win over Gladbach, BVB toppled their opponents at the speed of sound. The extra eleven goals also helped Borussia set a century-old record.

40 years ago, Dortmund knocked down as many home stands as this season. BVB fans have already been able to celebrate 53 times at home. Can a stadium take off from the heat? Nothing would surprise us with such figures.


Sorry folks, but the superlatives are tossed around now. Inter Milan are probably the hottest of all the hottest teams right now. You wonder why ? There is a very simple explanation for this. As if it wasn’t enough that Inter were on an eight-game winning streak, they also reached their first Champions League final since 2010 during the week.

The 1-0 win over city rivals Milan was also the derby’s second victory in six days and third of the season. Don’t worry, there’s more to come. In Serie A, the Nerazzurri ousted Lazio from third place at the weekend and set the stage for another year in the premier league.

How now is that all there is to it? Of course, there is more to come. The Milanese are also doing very well in the national cup. They meet Florence in the Coppa Italia final on May 24.

Manchester City

Milan will face Manchester City in the Champions League final. Pep Guardiola’s boys did a good job against Real Madrid. We could throw in superlatives, because the « Citizens » delivered against the Royals.

They didn’t let anything burn, front or back. Real saw no country and was treated according to all the rules of the art. The semi-finals showed that Erling Haaland doesn’t necessarily need to score goals, others can too. Above all Bernardo Silva, who scored twice to make it 4-0. The CL final could therefore be a final of superlatives.
