Bayer Leverkusen vs.  Borussia Dortmund - Match Report - September 11, 2021

Borussia Dortmund beat Bayer Leverkusen 3-4 away this Saturday in a crazy game with two goals from Erling Haaland, one from Julian Brandt and one from Raphael Guerreiro, while Wolfsburg remained the leader by winning by 0 -2 to Fürth.

Wolfsburg has four victories in four games and, although this Saturday was not brilliant, it was enough to maintain the course it has been leading since the beginning of the season with Marc Van Bommel on the bench.

A goal from Lukas Nmecha and another from a penalty from Wout Weghorst were enough for the victory.

The most promising match in the first shift of the afternoon was Leverkusen-Dortmund and both teams met expectations, with goals and a show.

Leverkusen were three times ahead on the scoreboard. Dortmund came back three times and ultimately scored the winning goal, with a penalty converted by Haaland.

Bayer opened the scoring in the 9th minute through Florian Wirtz. The tie came at 37 with a header from Haaland, a Thomas Meunier center from the right.

The VAR later annulled the one that would have been the second of Dortmund, marked by Jude Bellingham, by previous foul and before the break Patrick Schick put Leverkusen ahead again.

Shortly into the second half, Brandt leveled for Dortmund with a shot from inside the box from Haaland, but Diaby, seven minutes later, put Leverkusen ahead again with a shot from outside the box.

The game, however, was far from over. Raphael Guerreiro put Dortmund back into the duel with a great free-kick in the 71st minute and in the 76th minute, Haaland took advantage of a penalty against captain Marco Reus to score the winning goal.

The victory allows Dortmund to provisionally climb to second place in the table, three points less than Wolfsburg.

In the other first shift games on Saturday afternoon, Mainz beat Hoffenheim 0-2 away from home, Freiburg and Cologne drew 1 goal and Union Berlin and Augsburg drew goalless.
