From the point scoring, it was definitely a perfect week, said BVB captain Marco Reus on the DAZN microphone: “But we made it unnecessarily difficult again and simply gave away the goals. We were 3-0 ahead and got one stupid standard goal conceded. “
A dream goal by Raphael Guerreiro (10th) and Urgewalt Haaland (24th) paved the way for BVB to their third league win in a row before the break. After the change, Union captain Marvin Friedrich (52nd) underwent an own goal. Due to the converted penalty from Max Kruse (57th, according to video evidence) and a header from Joker Andreas Voglsammer (81st), coach Marco Rose’s team did not concede without a goal on matchday five. Shortly before the end, Haaland tied the brace with a fantastic lob and his seventh goal of the season (83rd).
Union meanwhile missed the leap to the European Cup places by the first defeat of the season. The Eiserne have been waiting for an away win in the Bundesliga for seven months.
BVB with a strong offensive urge
In contrast to the successful start in the Champions League at Besiktas Istanbul (2-1), Rose only made one change. Axel Witsel moved into the starting line-up for the injured Julian Brandt. As in Istanbul, Dortmund acted dominantly and purposefully. The hosts had to digest a moment of shock at the beginning in front of 25,000 spectators. Taiwo Awoniyi scored after 45 seconds, but the striker was just offside.
But then the favorite took over the command. Guerreiro’s remarkable oblique shot into the corner gave the black and yellow extra confidence. Defense chief Mats Hummels confidently organized the defense, Jude Bellingham and Mahmoud Dahoud drove the game in midfield. The playful Marco Reus always caused confusion in the Berlin defense and then of course there was Haaland. After a cross from Thomas Meunier, the Norwegian headed to his sixth goal of the season.
BVB subsequently kept its foot on the accelerator. From the Berliners came three days after their defeat in the Conference League at Slavia Prague (1: 3) initially little offensively. Awoniyi and Kruse had a difficult time at the top and received too little support from midfield.
Even after the break, the hosts immediately put the forward gear back into motion. A cross from Reus steered Friedrich into his own goal. But the team of coach Urs Fischer did not give up. After a foul by Witsel on Kevin Behrens, who had just been substituted, Kruse converted the penalty ice cold. The game was getting wilder now.
Union tried to get connected, BVB pushed for the decision. After a corner, Voglsammer prevailed against Meunier in a header duel and made the game exciting again, but shortly afterwards Haaland ensured the final score.
