This Friday, Borussia Dortmund had an almost perfect performance and got a good 4-0 win over Eintracht Frankfurt, at Signal Iduna Park, for matchday 22 of the Bundesliga. It was an important victory for Lucien Favre’s men, especially because of their elimination of the German Cup and their defeat on matchday 21. Lukas Piszczek, Jadon Sancho, Erling Braut Haaland, and Raphael Guerreiro scored the goals of BVB.

The first half was all dominated by the home side. They had 67% of ball possession and a total of 8 attempts on Kevin Trapp’s goal. They just had to focus on improving the clinical edge. They just got one of the shots really on the goal, but it was enough to break the deadlock and go half-time ahead on the scoring.

At the 33rd minute, Moroccan Achraf Hakimi, who just became father, got the ball on the right and saw Piszczek free at the edge of the box. He rolled the ball to him and the Pole sent a strong left-foot finish, in the corner, giving no chances for Eintracht Frankurt’s goalkeeper.

The Yellow and Black came back to the second half focused and didn’t take long to score. In fact, within 10 minutes, the scoring was already 3-0. The second goal came from a perfect counter-attack, in the 49th minute. Mats Hummels recovered the ball in the defense, passed for Axel Witsel, who picked Sancho out down the right. The Englishman got inside the box, left David Abraham on the ground and sent a lock-kick into the back of the net.

5 minutes later, the third goal came through the young star of the team. Haaland got ahead from the defense to send the ball into the net after Hakimi’s low cross. It was his eighth goal in just four games on the Bundesliga. He looked relieved after scoring, once he couldn’t do so against Bayer Leverkusen in the previous matchday.

At the 74th minute, Dortmund closed the scoring. After Frankfurt’s defense tried to clear the ball inside the box with a header and missed, it went straight to Guerreiro. The Portuguese hit a strong left-footed shot and Trapp couldn’t do anything to save it.

With the result, Borussia Dortmund reached 42 points, the same score as RB Leipzig, and moved up to the second place, one point behind leaders Bayern Munich. Eintracht Frankfurt remained with 28 points and is currently in 9th place.
