5: 2 at Hertha BSC: Dortmund and the big Haaland show

M.ith record debutant Youssoufa Moukoko, Borussia Dortmund took advantage of Bayern Munich’s mistake and, thanks to Torgarant Erling Haaland, moved up to one point on the table leaders. In the Berlin Olympic Stadium, BVB won the first game against Hertha BSC on Saturday evening with the 16-year-old and one-day-old Moukoko 5-2 (0-1). The goal show was not yet delivered by Moukoko as the youngest player in Bundesliga history, but once again by Haaland.

The Norwegian turned the game around with four goals (47th / 49th / 62nd and 79th minutes). “I liked the first goal best. The second was also nice, ”said Haaland at DAZN. Raphael Guerreiro (70th) also scored for BVB. The Berliners had taken the lead through Matheus Cunha (33.), the Brazilian later also scored with a penalty kick (79.). As a result, Dortmund pulled past RB Leipzig after their 1-1 in Frankfurt and also capitalized on Bayern’s 1-1 against Werder Bremen. After their defeats in Munich and Leipzig, Hertha also gave away point wins against the third top team and is stuck in the lower third of the table.

Despite the Haaland gala, all eyes were on Moukoko. One day after his 16th birthday, the attacker first had to take a seat on the substitutes’ bench. “There are no gifts. Birthday was yesterday, ”said coach Lucien Favre at DAZN. Wrapped up in a black and yellow wool blanket, the attacker sat between the other substitutes before Favre sent him onto the pitch for Haaland in the 85th minute, making him the youngest player in Bundesliga history. “I think he’s the greatest talent in the world. He has a great career ahead of him, ”said Haaland of Moukoko. D.

Moukoko had initially had young people sitting next to him. Jadon Sancho (20), Jude Bellingham (17) and Giovanni Reyna (18) also had to watch for the time being because of the Favre tactics. With a compact midfield around Mahmoud Dahoud and Alex Witsel, the BVB coach wanted to meet the Berliners in the center. Julian Brandt and Marco Reus stormed next to Haaland.
