– What a comeback to start the year with! Well done guys. Three massive points, Haaland writes Twitter.
Off the field rumors are swirling around Haaland, but on the lawn it did not sit for the Norwegian in this year’s first match. Against Eintracht Frankfurt, the goal was missed despite several good opportunities, but fortunately for Haaland he has several teammates who know where the goal is.
After Rafael Borré had sent the home team in the lead with two goals before the break, it looked like Frankfurt – without an injured Jens Petter Hauge in the squad – would take the three points.
But with 20 minutes left, Dortmund started the recovery. Haaland played through to Thorgan Hazard, who certainly put in 1-2.
That result stood until there were three minutes left, but then Jude Bellingham headed in the equalizer.
Just after the score, Haaland ended up in a scuffle with Martin Hinteregger. Jærbuen ran to get the ball, but ended up being pushed to the ground by the Frankfurt stopper. He liked it very badly, and after he too had delivered a push, both were each awarded a yellow card.
Just two minutes after the equalizer, the spin-off turnaround operation was a fact when Mahmoud Dahoud screwed the ball into the net.
Thus, Dortmund took three important points in the top match in the Bundesliga. After league leader Bayern Munich lost to Borussia Mönchengladbach, there is only a difference of six points from Dortmund to the top of the table.
“Starting the year with three points after such a match is incredibly nice,” Dortmund striker Donyell Malen told Viaplay.
