Dortmund vs Eintracht Frankfurt: Approximately 25,000 fans were at the Signal Iduna Park. However, it sounded more like 80,000 when Marco Reus scored a marvellous goal after a marvellous run from Haaland to give Dortmund the lead. A bizarre own goal from Felix during the 27th minute gave Eintracht Frankfurt confidence to try regaining the lead.
During the 32nd minute, the deadlock was again broken by Hazard after another spectacular assist from Erling
Haaland. Kobel preserved Dortmund’s two-goal advantage with a fantastic save to deny Santos Borre’s header soon after the restart, but that was about as good as it got for Frankfurt. The club were frustrated after 2 minutes as Martin Hinteregger gave away the ball to Dortmund which ended up as the 3rd goal for Dortmund.
In the second half, it got worse as Reyna managed to score a goal after a deflected shot from Erling Haaland.
