Haaland Scores Brace to Ensure Dortmund win
Jadon Sancho and Haalnd’s goals helped Borussia Dortmund brat RB Leipzig and stop them from going top of the German Bundesliga. Sancho scored one and set up another as Borussia Dortmund dashed RB Leipzig’s hopes of going top of the Bundesliga with an impressive 3:1 win.
The England forward opened the scoring for the visitors and put them in front after a goalless first half before crossing for Erling Braut Haaland to head in their second.
Haaland rounded Leipzig keeper Peter Gulacsi to seal victory for Dortmund. Alexander Sorloth netted a consolation for Leipzig, who failed to capitalise on leaders Bayern Munich’s Friday loss.
Bayern Munich who let down a 2:0 lead and lose 3:2 yesterday at Borussia Monchengladbach, handing Leipzig the chance to depose them at the summit but they were undone by Dortmund’s second-half blitz.
Sancho has not scored in the Bundesliga this season until Sunday’s win over Wolfsburg, netted for the second successive game, breaking the deadlock with a cool near-post finish.
Haaland’s double ensured only a second league defeat of the season for Leipzig and handed Edin Terzic a third win in four Bundesliga games since taking over as Dortmund interim manager in December.
Red Bull Leipzig remain second in the Bundesliga table and two points adrift of Bayern, while Dortmund stay fourth but close to within five points of the leaders.
