Closing matchday 29 of the Bundesliga, Borussia Dortmund visited Paderborn and gave a show. After the defeat for Bayern Munich at home, the Yellow and Black went to the Paderborn Arena and got a 6-1 victory against the home side. With a goal from Thorgan Hazard, Achraf Hakimi, and Marcel Schmelzer and three goals of Sancho, they were able to go home with the three points. Uwe Hunemeier scored the consolation for the hosts.
The ones who watched only the first half probably don’t understand how the final scoring was that. The first good chance came at the 16th minute, for the visitors, but Hazard’s shot stopped on goalkeeper Zingerle. Almost 10 minutes later, they missed another opportunity, this time with Raphael Guerreiro. However, the ball deflected in the defense and went to the corner.
Paderborn’s first chance was only at the 40th minute when Antwi-Adjei’s shot went over the bar. With that, both teams went to the half time goalless.
The second half, however, gave a different vibe. At the 54th minute, Hazard broke the deadlock. After Zingerle released the ball from Can’s cross, the number 23 was there to put it into the back of the net.
3 minutes later, Julian Brandt found Sancho alone in the 6-yard-box and the Englishman just had to push the ball into the net.
At the 72nd minute, Paderborn had the perfect chance to score and return to the game, when the referee awarded them a penalty. Hunemeier stepped up and converted from the spot.
However, they didn’t have much time to celebrate. 2 minutes later, Sancho appeared again to score the third goal of the visitors.
Dortmund still found the energy to score again and, in 7 minutes, they found the net 3 times. The first was at the 85th minute when Hakimi received from in the right and shot on the opposite corner. Then, 4 minutes later, Schmelzer appeared inside the box and was faster than the defender to put the ball into the back of the net.
Already on injury time, at the 90+2, Sancho completed his hat-trick after receiving a long ball from Witsel. The number 9 went forward and, face-to-face with goalkeeper Zingerle didn’t miss the chance.
With the 6-1 victory, Dortmund remains in 2nd place, now with 60 points, seven behind the leader Bayern Munich. Paderborn, on the other hand, occupies the last place on the table with only 19 points.
