After its slip facing Dusseldorf, many thought it was the beginning of the end of Borussia, but Lucien Favre has managed to reverse things and with a great Sancho widens its advantage in the standings by comfortably defeating Gladbach
The local triumph came after the new exhibition of the English player Jadon Sancho, author of a good 1-0, with a corner shot inside the area, and then was the intellectual author of Reus’ goal, after a play between both of them and the final pass of Götze.
The Gladbach, commanded by the Belgian Thorgan Hazard, the protagonist in the last date to put in orbit an attempt of Panenka against the Nuremberg, Gladbach barely had occasions in all the match. In fact, the goal of Kramer’s temporary draw was preceded by a hand that the referee did not consider collectible.
The bad news for Dortmund was the injury of Paco Alcácer in the 34th minute of the first half. It does not seem serious, but it cuts a good scoring run of the Spanish striker who together with Jovic are the top scorers of the Bundesliga with 12 goals.
Borussia Dortmund recovered well in the table after losing to Fortuna Düsseldorf in the last date. It continues to be the outstanding leader of a Bundesliga that dominates with nine points of advantage over Gladbach himself and Bayern, winner of the last six leagues. Bayern must play this Saturday against the dangerous Eintracht. Borussia, let’s remember, does not win it since the 11-12 season.
With the second air of Reus and Götze, with Witsel in the axis of the field, the goals of Alcácer and the magic that is contributing the young Englishman of 18 years, Sancho. Lucien Favre has enough equipment to sign up as a serious candidate to take the Champions League since the Bundesliga at this point belongs to them.
