Borussia Dortmund vs.  RB Leipzig - Match Report - May 8, 2021

(EFE) – Borussia Dortmund made Bayern Munich champions this Saturday – for the ninth time in a row – by defeating RB Leipzig 3-2 with a goal from Marco Reus and two from Jadon Sancho and without being able to count on Erling Haaland due to muscle injuries.

With the defeat, Leipzig has no mathematical chance to hunt down Bayern, which still has to play this Saturday against Borussia Mönchengladbach and has a seven-point lead with two games to go.

Reus opened the scoring in the 7th minute with a left-footed shot inside the box after receiving a block from Thorgan Hazard.

In the second half, in minute 52, Sancho increased the count with a shot to the second post from Raphael Guerreiro.

Lukas Klostermann cut with a header in 63, taking advantage of a corner kick; and in 77 Dani Olmo achieved a partial equalizer by finishing off a shot from Hwang on empty goal.

The second half had been Leipzig in many respects and seemed closer to victory than Dortmund, who had been superior in the first half.

However, in 87 Sancho scored the third with an empty shot from close range after a combination with Raphael Guerreiro.

For Dortmund, victory is key in the fight for the Champions League qualification.
