Home   /   Dortmund bottle lead over Werder

The battle between two big and historical German sides gave fans their money’s worth as Borussia Dortmund lost 3-2 at home to Werder Bremen. 

Julian Brandt made it 1-0 to Dortmund in the 45+2nd minute after a brilliant and composed strike from outside of the box. The German international left the Werder defence baffled as it was only Dortmund’s second chance of the game; their first since the second minute.

Compared to Dortmund’s two shots, Bremen had actually dominated the first half with six attempts along with a brilliant defensive display. But unfortunately, the visitors lacked the end-product as the ball just couldn’t get to the back of the net. 

The second half began with both sides switching from defensive to offensive. Brandt almost made it a brace for himself in the 47th minute but his shot was sent wide as the offside flag was raised. 

The visitors desperately tried to grab the equaliser, but out of nowhere, in the 77th minute, Portuguese full-back Raphael Guerreiro made it 2-0 to Dortmund after a brilliant left-footed thunder-strike from outside the box. 

But Dortmund couldn’t keep a clean sheet as their hungry visitors finally scored their first, very well-deserved goal of the match in the 89th minute thanks to substitute Buchannan.

Werder did not stop there as a thunder-strike from substitute Schmidt grabbed the visitors the equaliser just a couple of minutes later. 

Finally, in additional time, the hungry visitors made it 3-2 with Scotland’s Oliver Burke being the one to flip the script.
