The Pott rivals Schalke and Dortmund still have something in common …
Königsblau is currently just as dependent on his goalscorer Simon Terodde (33) as BVB is dependent on chief Knipser Erling Haaland (21).
Coach Dimitrios Grammozis (43) hopes that other players will finally start shooting. But he has no problem at all with Terodde’s one-man show: “I wouldn’t mind if only Simon scores and we still win.”
Not much goes without him – Terodde is Schalke-Haaland!
A look at the statistics shows how much the relegated is carried by the striker …
► Schalke have scored ten goals in six games so far. A whopping 70 percent (7) of it goes to Terodde’s account! Besides him, only Marius Bülter (28/2 goals) and Dominick Drexler (31/1) have met so far.
For comparison: Haaland (see statistics) is also irreplaceable at BVB with five stalls in four missions. In addition to him, six other players have already netted at the Revier rival.
► Incredible: Terodde snaps in the league every 76 minutes. If he continues at this pace, he will have 40 goals this season at the end of the season!
But it is also correct: The dependency is planned to some extent. Storm partner Bülter in particular almost sprints his lungs out of the body for Terodde, often creating the space he needs.
Grammozis: “You have to make a sacrifice through your path to get Simon free again and take the focus away from him.”
Haaland and Terodde – one of them flattens the Bundesliga, the other snaps the second league briefly …
