Dortmund know how to win without Haaland

Borussia Dortmund were able to overtake Hertha without the need for Haaland to see the door, thanks to goals from Brandt and the young Moukoko.


Borussia Dortmund put to the test that they can win without the help of Erling Haaland. The Signal Iduna Park team beat Hertha Berlin 2-0 thanks to two goals from Julian Brandt and Yousouffa Moukoko in a match in which the Norwegian star in the Borusser ranks did not appear. In this way, the team led by Edin Terzic is placed in fifth position in the table, just one point behind Eintracht Frankfurt in the Champions zone that will face the almighty Bayern Munich on Sunday.

The black-yellows were more active in the opening bars and had their first clear chance on a Reus free-kick that crashed off the crossbar. Mittelstädt was able to put the Berliners ahead in a phase where the locals took control of the game until Terzić's men re-imposed their game and missed a great opportunity through Bellingham. In the closing stages of the first half, Bellingham himself appeared closer and closer to the rival area, but failed to put Jarstein's side in trouble again.

That turned around in the second period, in which BVB went up a gear and immediately took the lead thanks to a shot from Brandt from the front in which goalkeeper Jarstein was unfazed. He was surprised by the execution of a player who continued to be key for Borussia who proved that he does not need Haaland's scoring nose to get the three points. Hertha did not manage to put BVB in trouble at any time, especially when they were left with ten after the expulsion of Darida, and ended up conceding the second goal, the work of the 16-year-old Moukoko. Keep looking for the Champions BVB.
