Against a struggling Union Berlin side, Borussia Dortmund came back from a 2-1 deficit at half-time to win 4-2. All four goals all came from different goal-scorers and a variety of ways. While the goals they conceded had a sense of predictability and deja-vu about them.
After a poor first-half, Edin Terzic adjusted his system significantly which freed up Nico Schlotterbeck to carry the ball forward and allowed more fluidity between Marco Reus and Julian Brandt while demanding a lot of Felix Nmecha. These changes flipped the game, as Borussia Dortmund managed to get the three points.
Niclas Füllkrug opened the scoring, before inadvertently deflecting Robin Gosens’ header into the back of his own net. Following another penalty conceded, Julian Brandt came on and helped change the game. Nico Schlotterbeck also scored with a wonderful strike from distance, before Julian Ryerson added some gloss to the scoreline.
Here are the three things we learned from Borussia Dortmund’s 4-2 win over Union Berlin.
