Borussia Dortmund visited Borussia Monchengladbach this Saturday in the German Bundesliga and ended up snatching a 2-1 away win. Thorgan Hazard and Achraf Hakimi scored for the visitors, as Lars Stindl scored the consolation for the hosts.

With the 2-1 away win, BVB capitalized on RB Leipzig’s goalless draw against Wolfsburg to take the second place in the league, and right now remains only a point behind leaders Bayern Munich. However, the Bavarian giants will still play this matchweek and might get the three points in the duel against Augsburg.

As expected, Gladbach was the one who took the initiative to go forward at the early stages. However, it was visitors Dortmund who opened the scoring. In the 8th minute, Erling Haaland received a gift from the home defense and passed it to Hazard. The midfielder rounded the defenders and landed a beautiful shoot to break the deadlock. 0-1 Dortmund.

After the early goal conceded, Stindl almost equalized it for Borussia Monchengladbach, but his effort went inches from the posts. Dortmund’s keeper, Roman Burki was also having an inspired day, as he saved some difficult balls to keep the clean sheet at half-time.

It didn’t last long though, as the hosts grabbed the equalizer just five minutes into the second half. After a corner kick, the ball found Monchengladbach’s top scorer Lars Stindl, who slotted home past Burki and into the back of the net. 1-1.

However, on 71 minutes, Dortmund retook the lead through Hakimi. The Moroccan was triggered by Englishman Jadon Sancho, got into the area, and rolled past the onrushing Yan Sommer to make it two and seal the deal for the visitors.

Following the 2-1 away win, Dortmund will prepare for the UEFA Champions League game against PSG in Paris this Wednesday. The Black & Yellow side won 2-1 at home, and any draw will do the thing for Lucien Favre’s men.

In the next matchday in the Bundesliga, Dortmund will host Schalke 04, their arch-rival, at the Westfalen Stadium.
