Thorgan Hazard Stars In Borussia Dortmund Win

Thorgan Hazard vs Wolfsburg

Borussia Dortmund secured an important 3-0 win in the Westfalenstadion against Wolfsburg. After a 2-1 home victory over Gladbach midweek, Lucien Favre‘s men gained positive momentum. Therefore, the team managed to jump to the 2nd spot in the Bundesliga table. Thorgan Hazard was one of the best players on the pitch today.

Marco Reus’s injury changed the game

The fixture started with small input for both teams. While Borussia Dortmund tried to dominate position, Wolfsburg didn’t mind staying compact and launching quick counters. Therefore, the Black and Yellow looked very inefficient on the ball in the final third. In the 28th minute, Marco Reus leaves the pitch with what seems like a left ankle injury. Lucien Favre decides that Mario Gotze is the perfect replacement, and he wasn’t wrong.

Gotze’s input in the game was noticeable as he managed to play quick one-touch football. Despite a few changes from the visitors, the home team seemed more and more confident on the ball. The first half ended goalless 0-0.

Compact in the defense thanks to Mats Hummels experience, Borussia Dortmund succeeded at launching dangerous quick-counters. Thanks to a quick run and pass by Hakimi, Thorgan Hazard scores his first goal as a BVB player in the 52nd minute.
