Join Football Ramble Daily hosts Luke Moore and Andy Brassell for a fascinating trip into the heart of German football. The two first head to the Merkur Spiel-Arena alongside 31,000 fans as Fortuna Düsseldorf host Hertha Berlin in a Friday night relegation scrap. Immerse yourself in the electric atmosphere as the two sides play out a thrilling 3-3 draw, before we hear from Fortuna manager Uwe Rösler.
Then the following day, join Luke 70km north-east of Düsseldorf at one of football’s most revered stadiums: the Westfalenstadion, home of Borussia Dortmund. The fans in the infamous Yellow Wall are on deafening form as their beloved team scrape past Freiburg in stormy conditions. And, finally, we transport you over to Cologne for Saturday’s late game as Andy and 50,000 others see FC Köln sweep aside Schalke – and afterwards long-serving goalkeeper Timo Horn tells us what makes his hometown club so special.
