Participant Score and efficiency v Stuttgart

0

Borussia Dortmund had to fight for every point in the Bundesliga clash on Saturday in a 3-2 win over Stuttgart.

Although Erling Haaland has received vital support in the game, a lack of goals means the Norwegian striker has now been 495 minutes since he last scored for a club or country.

Against a well-trained and determined Stuttgart team, Haaland showed what he can offer as a striker, but spent much of the game looking like a frustrated figure as he was not offered any service throughout the game.

CRUCIAL DUMMY ⏱️ 52 ”

After Dortmund bounced back a few minutes after the start of the second half with an equalizer from Jude Bellingham, it hit again just five minutes later with a second goal from Marco Reus.

Although Haaland will not receive official support for the goal, the Norwegian striker performed a formidable dummy to allow Mateu Morey’s pass to go through his legs and land at the feet of Marco Reus, who then duly rolled him off into the post to Dortmund bring the top.

ASSIST ⏱️ 80 ”

It wouldn’t be a Dortmund win if a young player didn’t step on the plate to score the winner, and on that occasion it was young Ansgar Knauff who snatched the winner for his team against Stuttgart.

While Haaland may have preferred to throw the ball into the net himself, the striker will no doubt be delighted to have received the ball in the final third and then pass it to Knauff in front of goal to at least earn some support.

Haaland: What’s next?

With Dortmund close to Stuttgart to keep hopes of a place in the top four, the Bundesliga will now turn their attention to the second leg of the Champions League against Manchester City.

As in Saturday’s game, Haaland failed to score against Man City but requested an assist and there is no doubt the ambitious striker will hope to produce the performance that the Premier League side almost single-handedly removed from the competition could throw.
