Borussia Dortmund victorious over Schalke 04

The Bundesliga is finally back and so does Erling Haaland. The 19-year-old Norwegian opened the scoreline in the 29th minute after an assist from Thorgan Hazard in the win over Schalke 04 with 4-0.

 

Haaland scored his 10th goal for this season after a great breakthrough and a perfect delivery from Hazard in the penalty area.

 

Favre's side went in the dressing rooms with two goals difference at the half time, after just before the break Raphael Guerreiro scored the second goal of the game.


 

Julian Brandt contributed for his team as he assisted two of the goals. The 24-year-old first managed to find Guerreiro in the 45th minute of the game, who blasted the ball right into the net.

 

In the 48th minute, just after the halftime, Hazard shoot the ball right past Markus Schubert after a pass from Brandt.

 

However, just before the start of the match Favre was forced to put in the game Thorgan Hazard instead of Gio Reyna.

 

Reyna suffered an injury in the warm up before the match and Hazard was placed in the Starting XI.


 

Borussia Dortmund played much more attacking than Schalke, they looked sharp for most of the times. Borussia have created many chances even in the opening minutes of the game.

 

In the 11th minute of the match, VAR came into action for a penalty check, after Haaland tried to hook the ball past the defence from a free-kick, but the ball reflected from Kenny.

 

Haaland immediately appealed for a spot-kick as the ball did brush Kenny's arm, but VAR decided that it was not a penalty.

 

Borussia controlled the match over the both halves. Schalke did have chances to open the scoreline, but they have wasted them.

 

Schalke managed to build-up their play, but they lack any real cohesion in the final third.


 


Guerreiro definitely was on the top of his game as he scored two of the goals.

 

The 26-year-old Frenchman, scored his second for the game in the 63rd minute after a great assist from Erling Haaland.

 

Schalke better side seemed to be the free-kicks as Wagner's side had several opportunities to score, but eventually nothing came out of it. They seriously needed the support of their fans.

 

Playing without spectators definitely made an impact of the game, the energy the players had was different, but this sight is something that we all need to get used to.
