A very important fixture ahead of the Klassiker, Borussia Dortmund host Wolfsburg in the Signal Iduna Park. Both teams want to secure the 3 points. Wolfsburg wants to secure a European spot while the black and yellows are looking to increase their chances to win the title. Thankfully, Paco Alcacer succeeded at scoring 2 goals to make Borussia Dortmund rise to the top of the Bundesliga table.
A Frustrating First Half
There isn’t much to say about the first half. Although Borussia Dortmund took control of the game early on, the Bundesliga leaders couldn’t find a way to decipher Wolfsburg defensive game.
On the other hand, Wolfsburg played a very dangerous counter-attacking strategy. The first half went on without much noticeable action from both teams.
Second Half, More Frustration and Injuries
The second half started with Borussia Dortmund’s full back Abdou Diallo’s injury. Lucien Favre had to make a substitution in the form of Achraf Hakimi.
Although Hakimi revived the left attacking side, he picked an injury as well and was subbed off by Bruun Larsen. Afterward, the game was going to a finish until Paco Alcacer got injured near the penalty area.
Paco’s 2 Goals Save the Day
A moment of genius, a mere inspiration. Paco Alcacer takes a freekick and put it in the back of the net. Then, two minutes later, after a last run effort from Jadon Sancho, Paco adds another goal to his scoring spree this season. Borussia Dortmund wins 3-0 in the Signal Iduna Park.
But there is more. Bayern Munich are held 1-1 in Freiburg. This means that Borussia Dortmund are going to the Klassiker with 2 points ahead of the Bavarian team at the top of the Bundesliga table. The black and yellows have what it takes to win that very important fixture. And if they do, they will increase their chances to win this season’s title.
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.
