A Goal Festival in the Westfalenstadion
It wasn’t a surprise seeing Julian Weigl play at the center back position. Despite Toprak’s return to training, Weigl shows greater performances in the defensive line. Therefore, Lucien Favre included him in the starting eleven. Achraf Hakimi, with a spell of genius, scored the first goal in the first half. Borussia Dortmund went into the locker rooms one goal ahead of the visitors.
In the second half, the Bundesliga leaders wanted more. Their ambition came to reality in the form of a Marco Reus goal. Afterwards, the black and yellows pushed even more forward. Mario Gotze transformed Sancho’s assist into a goal to make it 3-0. In addition to his assist, Guerreiro emphasized on his role by scoring the 4th goal. Marvin Bakalorz not celebrating his goal reflected Hanover’s desperation. And finally Axel Witsel closes the scoring sheet with a long range shot.
Borussia Dortmund Overcome Hanover
Usually a very competitive game between the two teams, Hanover’s current form didn’t help much. Borussia Dortmund are showing dominance. However, this momentum must be kept in order to break the pressure from the Bavarian title holders.
Lucien Favre is having the season of his managing career. In the first time since 2012, it seems that Borussia Dortmund are able to win big this season.
From the 2005 Borussia Dortmund, till the title winning squad in 2011 and UEFA Champions League runner up era, Mostafa was always a very passionate Black and Yellow supporter. You would often see him in Coffee shops and Bars on Matchdays. He will be wearing a BVB jersey and sipping on a German beer and most likely swearing at the referee.
