Julian Brandt:
Many of our opponents park the bus and play on the counter

Julian Brandt feels that most teams have a very defensive approach when they face Borussia Dortmund - and he has had to get used to that after his summer move from Bayer Leverkusen.

"You have to say that Dortmund has always been a constant over the years. They're always in the top three, and the opponents adapt to that. Many of them just park the bus and play on the counter," Brandt told BVB TV and added:


"That was also the case at times at Leverkusen, but not all the time. There were also teams who tried to play themselves, and then a lot more space opened up."

Brandt and Dortmund face Borussia Mönchengladbach at home today.
