BundesligaDid Erling Haaland say goodbye to Borussia Dortmund in style? Just maybe. The Norwegian is seriously on PSG’s radarBut he did what he did very well tonight in Dortmund: score. Halland gave Borussia three points with Meunier and Witsel in overtime against Hoffenheim.
This could be the next soap in this crazy summer of transfers. Erling Haaland may head to Paris Saint-Germain. This soap will have an epilogue in the following days. Tonight the Norwegian striker had just set off at Signal Iduna Park, where he welcomed Borussia Dortmund to Hoffenheim. There were also the Red Devils Thomas Meunier and Axel Witsel – who Juve courted. Thorgan Hazard is still recovering from an ankle injury.
After a strong start in the first half – with Kramaric heading into the post, Reina only fouled in front of goal – the match was halted. Dortmund pushed the visitors away, but creating chances was a difficult task. Haaland was also barely visible. Not so after rest. Dortmund advanced in five minutes. Via Rios and Bellingham, Reina was allowed to score on goal, and the American placed the ball with precision past Bowman.
It was the start of the crazy second half. Goalkeeper Koppel presented himself as a true asset to Dortmund. He did some hard balls. And the Swiss eventually had to succumb to a corner kick from Baumgartner, although Dortmund’s defense in particular wasn’t looking good there.
However, it wasn’t a tie on the board for long. Bellingham took advantage of the chaos at Hoffenheim almost immediately: 2-1. Dortmund are on their way to victory, but in the final minutes it looked like Borosin shot themselves once more. Dabbour was only allowed to extend a corner kick into goal.
A third match in a row without a win for Dortmund? The third match in a row without Haaland’s goal? None of that, think Norwegian. Barely a minute later, Haaland shot himself 3-2 on the board after a real fight. The offload for Haaland – and thus the entire stadium – was phenomenal. Another yellow and black piece of art?
Dortmund enter the international break with six out of nine. The next task is a difficult transition to Leverkusen. But whether Borossen will be able to count on Haaland (and Witsel) … the coming days will make us wiser.
