Borussia Dortmund went around on Monday for their first official outing of the season. In the cup, Favre’s team crushed Duisburg.
After developing to ten in more than half after the expulsion of an opponent, “Schwarzgelben” had no difficulty in taking place in this part. Even at 11 a.m., they were as irresistible as their two English strikers, Jadon Sancho and Jude Bellingham. The first opened the scoring quarter in penalties, and the second doubled it in the 30th by resuming a post from Thorgan Hazard. The former Birmingham City thus signed their first goal in their new colors.
Hazard then set out to put the score at 3-0 (39th), before young Giovanni Reyna (50th) and captain Marco Reus (58th) reduced the lead in the second half, to give this victory a demonstration step.
With this brilliant success in the 32nd round, Borussia prepared perfectly for the resumption of the championship. Lucien Favre’s team will face Monchengladbach at home next Saturday for a conflict between 2nd and 4th in the latest Bundesliga practice.
