Erling Haaland’s 12th goal in eight games puts Dortmund in second place with the win over Bremen

-

Borussia Dortmund scored a highly competitive 2-0 away win against Werder Bremen on Saturday afternoon. Erling Haaland played again for his team.

Werder Bremen started the duel brightly when they wanted to hold back the away team, but Dortmund started to grow into the competition. While BVB saw up to 60% of the ball in the first half, they tried to create real openings.

Omer Toprak missed a great opportunity for the hosts in the middle of the first half. After a free kick, both teams took a goalless break, although Bremen caused problems in Dortmund during quick breaks.

However, the away team improved significantly at the beginning of the second half and it wasn’t long before they took the lead. Dan-Axel Zagadou shot from the center of the box into the lower right corner of the next goal Jadon Sanchos cross.

And after 63 minutes, Dortmund doubled their lead. Sancho played a wonderful ball to Achraf Hakimi, who looked up and found Haaland in the middle. The Norwegian emphatically struck home to score his ninth goal in just his sixth league game for his new club – and only his fourth start.

Haaland got closer again, but Jiri Pavlenka was forced to make a smart stop to refuse him. After the away team had full control, they started creating a number of opportunities, and it was Haaland again that forced Pavlenka to take action.

When he turned away from a challenge, he sprinted to the penalty area before shooting in and firing a wild shot, but the Werder Bremen goalkeeper could refuse him. The referee whistled seconds later.

The win brings Dortmund back to second place in the table before RB Leipzig’s game, four points behind leaders Bayern Munich. Next they will be hosting Freiburg on Saturday.
