Dortmund went back on the horn thanks to Hummels


At the door of their rivalry with Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League, this Tuesday at the Parc des Princes, and took advantage of Friday’s 2-2 draw between Bayern Munich and Bayer LeverkusenBorussia Dortmund seized the opportunity with great difficulty, with a last-minute comeback, thanks to the 2-3 of Matt Hummels it was already the 88th minute, when Freiburg was playing more than the number of seconds before.

Again, like the day before, Dortmund led the scoreboard. Again, his rival matched him. And, unlike the previous rivalry, his opponent overtook him with a 2-1 lead before the break. But, on the contrary, he still reacted, first at 2-2 of Malen, in conjunction with Füllkrug. And then in 2-3 of Hummels, who also signed 0-1. In 2-4 Marco Reusin the 93rd minute, the solution to the visitors’ roller coaster.

It was a reflective situation for the yellow team, who, until they scored 0-1, were in control, with good counterattacks and no problems in their defense.

Hummels opened the scoring

In the 11th minute, the unanswerable and only header from Matt Hummels so oblivious to his markers that he did not even have to jump to connect the accurate header where Borussia Dortmund saw the future of the match from a more than promising prism, as the transfer of the confrontation until then, all under its own rhythm.

It’s not like that. The complex ending of Gregoritsh, later injured, warned that nothing could be done for Dortmund, amid the temptation to relax the intensity at Paris Saint-Germain and the Champions League on the horizon. The volley at the post with the right Lienhart, On the half hour, shortly after the first time, it was the sure warning of what was to come on the visiting block, suddenly back.

In both, the center is Tap for the two headers where they rested.

Dortmund are back

The second part is different. From the beginning. Dortmund insisted on a tie, first. Then, to victory.

First he was expelled Hoefler, for a harsh entry reviewed by VAR.

Then, again from a set piece, the delivery to the area was hit from the ground, in fit and started, with the ball slowly entering the goal, for Hummels, who rose again to save his team, which was the undoubted winner 2-4 on the counterattack of Marco Reus.
