8:02 am
pressure on russia to stop protecting syrian president bashar al assad french president emmanuel mccaughan accused has accused of being complicit in syria's actions. business as usual that appears to be the message of the syrian state t.v. images an upbeat president assad welcomed russian politicians to damascus signaling that the u.s. led strikes did not pose a threat to his hold on power russia says it's firmly behind its ally. relations between the russian and syrian army's or accident so relations between politicians the army will now fulfill its task and russia and the aside government are not the only ones defiant the pentagon showed off satellite images of the destruction saying the strikes completely destroyed two targets and seriously damaged another one in damascus was reduced to rubble. we have
8:03 am
a responsibility as a world to attack and stop what syria is doing and so the united states with her allies one after three sites these are pinprick targets three targeted sites that window were housing and testing chemical weapons these people fled. the site of the alleged chemical attack many refugees in the area are now in syria's rebel held north the feeling here is of disappointment that the airstrikes will do little to stop the war. thought i feel nothing because the u.s. britain and the rest of the world have taken away our emotions they told us with the friends of the syrian people but on the contrary they're our greatest enemies. we know that they tell us do whatever you want kill as you like. should back in damascus syria as deputy foreign minister greeted
8:04 am
a team from the international chemical weapons watchdog but despite western allies already having launched retaliatory strikes inspectors will now determine whether poisonous gas was used in ghouta. they won no it's a sign playing. well for more on this joined here in the studio by d.w. political correspondent thomas sparrow and with us in luxembourg is dog matis let's start with you foreign ministers are meeting there today where you are always talking about syria understand what can we expect i expect you know european foreign ministers here to formalize their support for these airstrikes conducted by two a members of the european union and the u.s. also expect them to condemn the use of chemical weapons and what they will emphasize what they're expected to emphasize in their council conclusions here really is that the sole purpose of these strikes was deter the regime from the
8:05 am
future use of these chemical weapons so now there are no other object if in mind and then of course today all eyes on germany and france in particular they're expected to kick off a new political initiative to resolve this conflict in the future now berlin has already voiced support for the air strike in syria. over the weekend but its focus tallness is definitely on diplomacy at this point germany's foreign minister heiko must now says a window for dialogue has opened with syria's main backer russia here's what he had to say on sunday. out of london we've always said we want to continue a dialogue with russia. but it's really time to say that we want constructive input from the russians in syria as well instead of just protecting us he was a mighty hunter. germany's foreign minister there are. those the german government
8:06 am
think that russia will and other warring parties in syria for that matter will actually now be more inclined to come to the negotiating table and maybe come up with a political solution to the conflict. what the german government hopes they have said all along that this conflict in syria cannot be resolved without russia and that there is therefore a need to sit down at the table with russia and try to find. solutions at the same time however in that interview also stressed that it was not only about sitting at the same table and talking that it was about demanding concrete proposals from russia so that's also part of that initiative that i mentioned that germany and france will be trying to kick start any russia obviously is a key part key player in this conflict the french president the call has accused russia of being complicit in the syrian government's use of chemical weapons let's listen part of what he had to say. of course that complicity. i said so when i
8:07 am
spoke to vladimir putin they didn't use coloring themselves but they have met all the key built of the incapacity of the international community to use diplomatic means to prevent the use of chemical weapons. georg their luxembourg individual european powers are openly accusing russia of involvement in chemical weapons attacks does that not complicate the use push for diplomacy. that is of course the danger terry and it is an argument to be made on the other hand there is the same argument argument you could make about the about the airstrikes that they only help to escalate the crisis and not lead to a deescalation off the crisis and that is really the point that that michael is trying to make here and he says he hopes that these strikes will show what determination on the part of the west that this is not a one off but this is part of a strategy and the key part of that strategy is to bring russia as thomas pointed
8:08 am
out correctly here to the negotiating table to make them part of a new initiative and that is for instance also why the french president also made clear that the b. he believes he has convinced donald trump to stay over the long term militarily involved speaking a language potentially that flooded me putin will understand sometimes we sometimes hear mixed messages coming from the russian government from or from the german government i should say individual members of the german government about how to deal with russia russia being a key player as we said already in this conflict in syria is germany is playing a special role here in keeping diplomatic channels with russia open in a certain way yes and that also has to do with the fact that the two leaders the germany down the russian need to know each other very well they worked for many many years together although there are clear differences between germany and russia but germany certainly believes that it can play an important role when it comes to
8:09 am
finding those diplomatic channels again germany's position on oldest was they supported the airstrikes but they clearly said they would not take part in any military action on the other hand they would try and focus on finding political solutions because according to the german government that's the only way this crisis can be resolved so as thank you so much to debbie is thomas sparrow here in the studio with us and in luxembourg not to sue we usually have in brussels but is now with the e.u. there in luxembourg thank you both very much. well later in the program we'll be speaking to a russia analyst trying to understand how president vladimir putin sees the latest as strikes and what his next moves might be that's coming up in just less than half an hour. now to some of the other stories making headlines around the world today protests have been taking place across india over the gang rape and killing of eight year old. the girl's body was discovered in
8:10 am
a hindu dominated area earlier this year demonstrators demanded justice for her and for other victims of sexual crimes it's. to christians were killed and so western pakistan when gunman opened fire on people leaving a church the members of the of quetta a small christian community were returning home when two men on a motorbike begin shooting at them several people were wounded. and that would protest of a starbucks coffee shop and the u.s. city of philadelphia after two black men were arrested there the men said they were waiting for a friend before ordering but stop accuse them of trespassing accusations of racial profiling and starbucks chief executive was forced to apologize. blizzards have brought record snow falls and freezing temperatures to the u.s.
8:11 am
midwest hundreds of thousands of homes are with help power and a blizzard warning has been put in place in parts of minnesota the city of duluth has been especially badly affected. former f.b.i. director james comey has said u.s. president is quote morally unfit for the office of president in his first t.v. interview since he was fired by trial and he said that the interview was part. of a media blitz for his new book higher loyalty as it's called studio be released to morrow as the latest chapter in the bitter feud between the two men let's quickly recap the key events in march last year comey confirmed that the f.b.i. was investigating russian links to the trump campaign but he informed trump that he was not personally under investigation well just weeks later in may trump fired
8:12 am
komi raising many questions about the timing the president has been inconsistent in his reasons for firing the f.b.i. director well in june comey testified at a state intelligence committee hearing accusing trump of lying defaming the f.b.i. and trying to derail an investigation in the past twelve months trump has frequently taken to twitter of course to blast calling him a leaker a liar a showboat and a nut job and in the run up to sunday's interview he launched a new barrage of tweets branding komi as a slimeball and now comey has hit back here's why he told us network a.b.c. that trump is unsuitable for the office of president stuff about him being mentally incompetent to early stages of dementia strikes me as a person of above average intelligence who's tracking conversations and knows what's going on i don't think he's medically unfit to be president i think is
8:13 am
morally unfit to be president who talks about and treats women like they're pieces of meat who lives constantly about matters big and small and since the american people believe that a person is not fit to be president of united states on moral grounds. former f.b.i. director james comey there will joining us now is us political analyst tyson barker from the aspen institute here in berlin good morning tyson morning what do you make of coney's latest statements about the president well clearly there is no love lost between the two men and i mean the interview that he gave yesterday and a.b.c. was dripping with personal to stay in that meeting and he did bring what he's known for this kind of boy scout persona to that interview saying that he is morally unfit to be president that said he did say that the decision to remove from from office should not be made by any process or technical vote or even even by impeachment up to this point it's there's no evidence but rather by the voters themselves that's the democratic process in the democratic process should be
8:14 am
allowed to work itself out of donald trump president don't trump the proceeds of this interview with a tweet storm classic trump style against let's take a look at one of the more recent tweets he wrote slippery james komi a man who always ends up badly and out of what he is not smart will go down as the worst f.b.i. director in history by far. tyson who will american voters trust in all of this who are they going to be more inclined inclined to believe trump were coming what do you think the polls show and there was a poll taken last week by politico showed that americans trust komi two to one forty eight percent to thirty two percent but that thirty two percent is really important because that's the hard trump base the kind of always trump ors that don't really leave the president they don't defect from the president no matter what happens and the question is is the support for comi and the motor investigation as determined as those that thirty two percent that's really sticking
8:15 am
with trump and white house reporters are saying that they've never seen trump as angry as he is right now just ahead of the book's release the book to be released tomorrow by comey what is it about all this that angers trump the. well i think that. he's directed most of his iyer over the past year with the russian investigators and his attorney general and deputy attorney general he really sees the spark that started this fire as being the decision by jeff sessions to accuse himself from the investigation thereby starting a chain of events that led to this miller investigation the raid at the f.b.i. the f.b.i. raid of his personal lawyer last week mr cohen has also sparked a lot of nervousness in the white house and particularly for the president himself he is asking to know what evidence was gathered in those raids of course the implication that they want to prepare themselves for whatever might be coming down the pipeline so you've got
8:16 am
a president becoming increasingly nervous and agitated i suppose you could say let's listen to what komi himself had to say when asked if the russians had any compromising information on donald trump i mean these are more words i never thought i utter about a president i'd say it's but it's possible and i wish i wasn't saying it but it's just it's the truth it always struck me and still strikes me as unlikely and i would have been able to say with high confidence about any other president i've dealt with but i can't it's possible. former f.b.i. director casting doubt on trump suggesting that the russians might have some incriminating. evidence what do you make of that how significant is this statement it's very significant the other question that he came up in this interview as you know the george stephanopoulos asked several times for him to render judgment on a number of issues what is your what's your take and he really tried to stay within a certain box because he knows that he is a witness he's not just you know
8:17 am
a former f.b.i. director but a witness in a live investigation and he doesn't want to do anything that will affect his credibility as a witness in the miller investigation itself we've seen many developments so far during trump's brief presidency all moving towards an old white house increasingly in disarray and being on the back foot as it were in turmoil how significant is this development now what is happening with coneys book how much is this adding to the fire well they've clearly komi is clearly set up a p.r. kind of campaign that's going to keep this in the news cycle for a week he's got a number of interviews coming out he's going to do a book tour they've commissioned i think nine hundred thousand books that's about four hundred five hundred thousand books more than the fire and fury book that came out a couple of months ago but the truth is the news keeps layering over itself so this is one episode in a long narrative that's been going on since this presidency began but it's certainly not the last episode. will have much more to talk about as things
8:18 am
continue tyson barker's in the austin institute here in berlin thanks so much. well turkey is fighting a growing currency crisis god has more that's right terry it's the data seems paradoxical turkey's economy seems to be going gangbusters officially it grew by more than seven percent last year that's stronger than china's but some economic indicators seem to contradict that the turkish currency the euro has been on a continuous downward spiral many analysts are saying the turkish government is let's say getting creative with their bookkeeping so what's going on. turkey is cheaper than ever for foreign tourists the turkish lira continues to hit new lows against major currencies. it's lost nearly half its value against the euro for examples since twenty fifteen. but although that might be great
8:19 am
for foreign visitors it's a huge problem for the country because it has to import commodities like oil and gas the country's central bank could apply the brakes by raising interest rates but president recha out of want has hamstrung that idea he's betting on a looser monetary policy that wants to retain low interest rates to help drive economic growth and he accuses those who aren't of the same opinion of being tools of western powers ever want to tributes the fall of the leader to turkey's enemies . he claims that they are playing games with our economy and i say to all those who attack our economy that you will not succeed you failed before and will feel like again. turkish companies are suffering the country's largest manufacturer of food products isn't debt to the tune of billions and hard currencies but in its home market sales are in default langley are up but it has
8:20 am
already warned that it will soon be unable to meet its obligations all told turkish companies zero creditors around three hundred billion dollars some economists now believe turkey could be the flash point that sets off a new financial crisis. as rubbish on the streets of the rivers and in the sea india is sinking into a deep waste crisis the problem is particularly prevalent in the capital and other major cities due to a lack of vision disposal systems throughout the country now one entrepreneurs fighting against this wave of golf it's. india's economy is growing and with it so are the mountains of rubbish garbage has been piling up for decades in the country's major cities. functioning disposal systems instead millions of illegal waste collectors wait through the rubbish and
8:21 am
separate the trash from the treasure it's a dangerous job. to get there one dollar two dollars a day the hindenburg trash never know what they're getting. there don't wear any safety gear so if you have lost everything in life you have no life that's when you actually become an actor because. now i got garbage has plans to tackle india's waste crisis with the help of rubbish collectors wakas can separate the rubbish in the recycling factory instead of on the streets. thirty five million. dollars system. speakers are on board so we're trying to as much. as possible to get to fix it.
8:22 am
the company collects and analyzes data from junkyards waste collectors and domestic households to make the system more efficient. the information is then made available on the internet. people. who are saying oh. much. somebody. the company is currently. supported by indian i.t. giant mindtree been a few months it plans to break away by itself the organization is set to be deployed across the country to help eliminate india's garbage. and that's all we have business for now it's back to the very stubborn politicians stroy it's quite
8:23 am
a few stubborn politicians there in this region i think thanks so much anger is growing in the west african nation of togo over the president's refusal there to step down after nearly thirteen years in power protesters clashed with police over the weekend they are demanding term limits be placed on the president but the government is refusing to back down. it was only a handful of two girlies who together in front of the headquarters of an opposition party but that was enough to prompt a response from soldiers. who were has seen regular demonstrations since last august the opposition agreed to hold them for more than a month to give time to neighboring ghana to mediate between the two sides but after talks stalled protesters again took to the streets the situation you're in loamy is quite tense the government bans all protests and the security forces both
8:24 am
police and military are enforcing that order strictly. small groups of protesters try to block the streets. the police response with glee. dozens of demonstrators have been there arrested since last year and at least eleven people have lost their lives. this is barbaric. we have the right to protest in the constitution and the police is harassing people in arresting them we've had enough to go can't go on like this things need to change. the government argues that the president was elected democratically and says the ban on demonstrations is legal. he said this is your decision. if they don't like it they can take us to the courts if a judge sides with them they can demonstrate again by the opposition hasn't done that yet they're just demonstrating that's not right we don't accept that we live
8:25 am
in a country of laws is the key. to persevere doesn't the. an alliance of fourteen opposition parties claims that it was just a system isn't independent and says the government has no interest in solving the problem asking for the turn to our constitution we true voted for him. one thousand nine hundred ninety two. and we want to eat because the constitution. the meat to the norm. president. and our current president. have indicated to him which is not conform to what. constitution presidential elections until we are in plans and through two thousand and twenty many observers fear that the situation here could escalate further if
8:26 am
the government and the opposition fail to find common ground. thousands of cattle and separatists have been rallying in barcelona to demand the release of jailed so such an ist leaders to pro independence grassroots groups organize the protest and they also have the support of spain's two main labor unions protests came ten days after a german court dismissed an extradition request for catalonia is ousted separatist president and released him on bail. for. the streets of barcelona flooded with yellow it's the color chosen to show solidarity with a nine imprisoned catalan separatist leaders who've been pretrial detention for six months now they're facing charges of rebellion in connection with last year's failed independence bid in catalonia their supporters consider them to be political prisoners one of the most serious problem is the price paid by politicians who were elected by the people we cannot stand for that. today i'm here because i'm old
8:27 am
rates with everything going on just like everyone had today i want the freedom of all calm rights. since the arrests catalonia is independence movement has stalled but advocates say their fight isn't over and if and they're not able this is about defending our democracy and ending a policy influenced by judicial authority releasing prisoners allowing exiles to come back and resolving the political conflict using policy and only policy because . among the jail separatists are members of catalonia is regional government including jordi sanchez catalan lawmakers selected sanchez twice to be their new leader but both times a spanish judge refused to release him from jail to be sworn in catalonia has been in political limbo since spain central government imposed direct rule on the region after it unilaterally declared independence last october

8:30 am
more influence democracy and the rule of law are on shaky ground but the good ground of the should be. brave. not. desh the dawn of islam is a an exclusive d.w. report starting april twenty first. welcome back here with g.w. news i'm terry martin our top story western leaders are calling for a fresh diplomatic push to end the war in syria two days after u.s. led airstrikes targeted sides linked to the production and storage of chemical weapons. or russia has condemned those western missile strikes on alleged chemical weapons sites the war of words escalated further at an emergency meeting of the u.n. security council over the weekend russia called the meeting to try to pass
8:31 am
a resolution condemning the allied attack but failed here's some of what was said at that meeting. before us is pandering to the same terrorists who have been told mensing the syrian people think is really dark to boot this is how you want international affairs to be conducted now this is hooliganism in international relations and not to mind a hooliganism given that we are a major nuclear power was i'm in awe the silly of how you say what you say with a straight face i really really am i will take no lessons mr president an international no from russia russia can complain all it wants about fake news but no one is buying it's lies and its cover ups. well find more about what this means i'm joined here in the studio by honest adam hollis out of my he's a political scientist and an expert on russian affairs thanks for being with us
8:32 am
again this morning. some very harsh words there for a security council bad tempered if you will at the very beginning at that u.n. secure secretary general antonio of the terrorists declared and i quote the cold war is back with a vengeance is he right well in many ways i think he is when you look at the mutual invectives that has been in changed when you look at the fact that you have a succession of diplomats that are being expelled i mean you look at the sanctions that are being imposed when you look at the propaganda and when you look at the torrent ready of lies that are coming out of the kremlin that of course is the clyde to remain is and the cold war indeed of course made a difference as to. ok let's talk about these differences between the old cold war and the one that we're looking at now assuming that this can be described also as
8:33 am
as a cold war with some hot components that must be said how dangerous is it well it's no more dangerous than it was in the cold war and i think the main point to to to look at is that the ideological component in the competition between the east and west now is lacking and also the military confrontation that characterized the the cold war that to some extent is also absent because war actually means that you are endeavoring to be victorious in a war evidently and so this was really the cold war was a struggle and who of the two different opposed his sister can own systems would be coming out to triumph and and that that component to israel. lacking now you know russia very well help us if you can to get inside the head of russian president vladimir putin he's involved militarily in ukraine he's involved militarily in
8:34 am
syria of course he's allegedly behind the poisoning of a former russian spy sergei scrip all and his daughter yulia in britain what sort of game is vladimir putin playing what's his strategy well i'm not sure that he has a well defined strategy i think is probably right to say that he's a brilliant tactician but he is a lousy strategist here winds all sorts of battles it seems but the war so to speak a. victory in the war is not very inside you know and there you have to separate i think all these different components to you were a dozen mentioning namely a diva the poison attack in england syria and ukraine in one actually should look at all these in a separate way for instance in ukraine that's a quite to clearly related to the claim by russia that is the post office space is
8:35 am
a russian sphere of influence syria that's a different syria there is this is an occasion of putting to demonstrate that russia still is or again is a superpower to be reckoned with and has to be included in any kind of a solution for a regulation of relations in the middle east and it is a poison attack i think it is not ready to be considered something that putin personally directly and specifically authorized i think if there was a general authorization that this should be done that traitors those because should be did from the face of the earth but not a specific authorization in this case so one look at all these things in a more isolated way rather than. in terms of a grand strategy ok well let's step back from generalizing about these various tactical challenges that he's involved in let's look specifically inside of
8:36 am
a lot of our pre-teens head when he looks at his country's borders you mentioned you can range he seized the russia threatened to some degree by nato in a military context but also politically by by the e.u. why would he perceive the e.u. as a threat this is a very interesting point because you see the to use the appropriate political science the term the narrative by russia is that russia had to react to a military political challenge as the big demised by nato i think it is challenger isn't on there does today provide you with one example namely by two thousand and thirteen just one year before the ukrainian the next asian station of crimea. the last battle tank by the united states was but drawn from europe so in the end two thousand and fourteen has united states didn't have one single battle tank in europe so what is the where is the nato threat to be but you're quite right i mean
8:37 am
the real threat really is is not military but so is economic and this is the reason why the european union is important in the context ok let's get back to the syria issue for a moment they had the u.s. led missile strikes on alleged chemical weapons sites in syria do you think putin was at all at all surprised by this not at all of course that trump a said quite clearly at first in one of the tweets that within the twenty four or forty eight hours there would be a such a strike and then more specifically a few hours before the strike actually occurred then russia was notified that this was going to happen so no surprise whatsoever and just briefly what sort of response do you think we could get from russia on this. i think this is just about all of it i think there is not going to be more than that because i think in some ways that they are a content that nothing more than what had happened did happen so i don't think of
8:38 am
that now going to increase the pressure and escalate the conflict i don't think so far as out of mights their political science as an expert on russian affairs thank you so much for talking with us this morning for now to egypt and cairo is the most dangerous metropolis in the world for women according to a new study by the thomson reuters foundation it says that women there are seen as fair game and domestic violence is called in place two thirds of men questions admitted to committing sexual harassment but the government has promised action in egypt but stamping out harassment and bring justice to the victims is proving difficult. it began as an innocent until into the shopping center but that short trip turns my atari life upside down a camera recorded what happened. coming out of that entrance
8:39 am
the guy. what do you want what he needs are you ask about something or he was he was like you know i was waiting for you for the past hour i want you to come home with me and you have no option you are coming home. like no this will never happen and it is slap me twice in my face and he started to hate then the security came he stabbed the letter out i would doubt any thing called the police station for example. so my aunt took my her oppose self she refused to let her attacker get away with it. i went to the police station i took good video you off the wall way happened to the police station i told them i don't know him but his face is clear in the video can you get dutch guy because he sexually harassed me and wanted to take me to his will by force and then slap me. they made a complete joke out of me. so my as attacker was cooled and convicted he was fined
8:40 am
less than four euro's a bitter experience and by no means a one off such as what you took into common according to research on the for me. there is too many reasons but why is that is also because i think primarily for me is a growing social acceptance for for the practice it's ok people are seeing it bystanders are seeing a daily basis has become a normalized kind of behavior and it's not really kind of condemned ethically. nowadays so maya is reluctant to venture out onto the streets in cairo and that's not just because of the sexually charged atmosphere. some are told reporters from egyptian television what happened in the shopping center and gave them some of her own private photos she wanted to cause a stir. but the channel gave the story a very different slant portraying the twenty five year old as a decadent woman the effect was devastating. they've been calling
8:41 am
meanings industry they were running after me. they destroyed my car because. i'm not a good girl and follow in. religion according to a lifestyle. president publicly supports women's rights. in two thousand and fourteen he brought in stricter penalties for attacks on women in two thousand and fifteen he launched a program for tackling violence against women and he declared two thousand and seventeen to be egyptian women's year. the the loads ists but the problem is not the low is the enforcement of below the procedures that women have to go through and enjoy to be able to file a case against sexual harassment is really really tedious and sometimes humiliating that makes women shy away from doing it. helping women and imagine see is the idea
8:42 am
behind a new action launched a few weeks ago. uses within a kilometer or notified if a woman sets off an alarm through the app. one hundred fifty emergency calls were made within the first month roughly one in five users have answered a positive sign. as the true essence of. every single instance where it's very. physical it's bigger. and people do not report it or it's the way reporting is really just going forward it is in actually let people know magnitude of the problem and actually try to help . somalia has twice been the target of sexual harassment the attacker from the shopping center struck again outside this pharmacy. these pictures were taken
8:43 am
seconds before the assault. this time the man slashed her in the first with a knife she needed fifty stitches. no one helped. today so maya is sad and basically disappointed. i had to lose my job. my college my parents my friends even my hero i had to move out to a complete different one. i laws three years in college because if i'm not talking to my parents for the past two years because they're ashamed to talk to me. so maya trying to take her own life a few weeks ago the doctors managed to save her. she no advice as women in egypt to put up with sexual assault and not to trying to defend themselves it's a dismal outcome. to brazil now where thousands of
8:44 am
turned out in rio de janeiro demanding answers in the slaying of city councilwoman ellie franco she was shot dead a month ago after an event on empowering black women franco had been a fierce critic of police brutality racism and discrimination against the poor though her death sent shock waves through brazil there's been no arrests in the case so far. speaking out for the woman who can speak no more a month after mario franco was gunned down her supporters demand answers one particular detail of the investigation has spiked their suspicions officials say she was killed with police bullets they say were stolen. franco's death cuts especially close for telia patro name they were close friends like franco patron is a leftist politician devoted to feminist causes and defending the poor and she too
8:45 am

champions by yeah one hundred percent i mean the table doesn't lie they are sitting second now comfortably by four points i think and. yet i deserve it i think a few eyebrows were raised when domenica to disco was given the job he was only thirty one at the time never played again freshly made on the ever coached eleven games and that was in june. and shelter in a bit of a mess they finished tenth last season but he's come in and he's worked wonders he's really tournaments you can see you know they're very hard to break down very hard to score against that but second best offense in the bundesliga and they've also managed to get up to second without really having a prolific goal scorer which is a bit of an anomaly usually in the blue as they go has twelve goals but then after that now though is up there with seven goals is the second top goalscorer he's in central defender to discos done a great job and if they can stick it out and get second spot that comes with the champions league football which means more money more investment and can invest

that cash and push on for next season and maybe even start to give bond a bit of a challenge so shocker looking good what about dortmund could they end up missing out on that fourth spot in the champions league it's looking more and more likely i mean a few weeks ago it looks like it looked like they were going to cruise into the top full but this loss against shakur is a big blow and there's only four games left for them and that got four very tough games months probably looks like the only one that they are guaranteed to get three points in that then they have laver couzin who are in top form also going for champions league football hoffenheim as well seven games are also going for him is a football and then that a braman who are a bit rejuvenated and this loss against shell has given lots of a chance they line fifth and it gave them a chance to gain a bit of ground as we say right now we have ports of their game against braman. ralph pozen who was criticised for leaving team advantage out of the light side

the point. so yeah they. still have quite a bit of work to do there in the race for the champions league spot you think they have what it takes to qualify i think it's still possible as i mentioned before dortmund have a tough run up coming at the last four games with what they have a bit of an easier run they are four points behind but i expect them to get another three way wins this season so it is still possible but it's very tight up there the champions league spot very much coveted and going interesting we have the table just coming up here you can see how tall it is i mean shall have a bit of a buffer from third and fourth and then an adult into their on and then trailing then come in hoffenheim so it's a pretty much a four tame race for the last two spots i'd say the champions like ok young expect fun d.w. sports thanks so much. and you are watching news coming to you live from
