Borussia Dortmund took a huge step towards their fight to qualify for next season’s UEFA Champions League following their victory over Wolfsburg on Saturday.
Erling Braut Haaland was twice on the scoresheet as the Black and Yellow lads recorded their fourth win in their last four games in the German Bundesliga.
The Norway international opened the scoring in the 12th minute, capitalising on a misplaced place to the opponent’s defence before going on to beat the keeper.
That was his 24th league goal of the campaign and the 35th he had scored on all season in 38 games.
Jude Bellingham received a second yellow card in the 59th minute of the game and was forced to go for an early shower.
However, that did not have any effect on the away side as they went on to double their lead through Haaland.
Nine minutes after the red card, Mahmoud Dahoud, who seems to have become an important figure in the Dortmund squad played the striker, who went on a solo run from his own half before shooting past Koen Casteels to make it 2-0.
The win gives Edin Terzic’s side a crucial chance to enter the top four considering the fact that Eintracht Frankfurt also suffered a 3-1 defeat to Bayer Leverkusen.
Dortmund are now two points behind third-placed Wolfsburg and just a point behind Frankfurt who occupy the fourth position.
Their next game is against RB Leipzig, who are six points above Dortmund.
