Helpless against Bayern (0-1) 10 days ago, Borussia Dortmund also disappointed in a dismal first period against Paderborn, the red lantern, last Sunday (for a 6-1 final victory). Lucien Favre’s men still had a lot of trouble to unblock the situation when Hertha Berlin came on Saturday as part of the 30th day of the Bundesliga.
Thorgan Hazard and Jadon Sancho, associated with the outposts in the absence ofErling Haaland, failed to make a difference against a regrouped team and the usual side activity, Achraf Hakimi and Raphaël Guerreiro, did not allow the Borussens to find fault in the lair of Signal Iduna Park. It’s finally Emre Can, on a discount from the head of Julian Brandt, who opened the scoring at the hour (58th).
The BVB nevertheless returns to 7 lengths from the Munich leader. Dortmund will continue against Düsseldorf next weekend, while Bayern will host Mönchengladbach without Robert Lewandowksi and Thomas Müller, both suspended.
