1,250 spectators attended the public session at the youth stadium in Brackel on Tuesday afternoon and watched the Borussia Dortmund first team kick off the new week of training.

Following eight victories in the first eight competitive games of the new year, the Black & Yellows and their fans are riding high. You could sense that throughout the training session in Dortmund-Brackel on Tuesday afternoon. Having completed some warm-up exercises and a passing drill, the 11 starters from the weekend turned their focus to the fans and their autograph requests, while the rest of the squad took part in a match scenario with two goals. The good news: Mateu Morey worked with the ball and completed the passing drills along with his team-mates.

Having completed their work, Julian Brandt & Co. spent more than an hour making the fans at the youth stadium happy by posing for photographs and signing autographs.
