Sebastien Haller and Donyell Malen led the way as Borussia Dortmund dispatched Gladbach 5-2 to stay one point behind Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga title race.
A stunning first half performance set the tone for a convincing victory as Borussia Dortmund managed to stay on Bayern Munich’s heels in the Bundesliga title race. Sebastien Haller and Donyell Malen were the stars of the show for the Black and Yellows, with the latter making it eight goals and five assists in his last eight appearances in the Bundesliga.
Jude Bellingham and Gio Reyna were also on target for Borussia Dortmund, who were in cruise control for the majority of the game thanks to a blistering first half performance.
