Edin Terzic high-fived Sebastian Kehl before the final whistle, and the players were celebrated by the fans who had traveled with them after their work was done. For at least one night, Borussia Dortmund took the lead in the Bundesliga. The sometimes rather shaky runner-up won 3-1 (2-1) at TSG 1899 Hoffenheim at the start of the sixth matchday and remains unbeaten this season.
“It was another small obstacle for us that we overcame. These are results that strengthen us,” said goal scorer Niclas Füllkrug on the streaming service DAZN. “There were a lot of emotions, it was a difficult game,” said goalkeeper Gregor Kobel: “In the end we did our job.”
In front of the new national coach Julian Nagelsmann at his former place of work, the three goals in the first half on Friday evening were preceded by serious mistakes. In any case, coach Edin Terzic’s team was not able to fully convince before the next challenge in the Champions League on Wednesday against AC Milan – but Marco Reus was able to celebrate as a goalscorer again.
In front of 30,150 in the sold-out Sinsheim stadium, national player Füllkrug scored his first goal for BVB (18th minute) as did Reus (45th + 3) and Julian Ryerson (90th + 5) for BVB. Andrej Kramaric equalized with a penalty kick (25th). This also ended TSG’s series of four wins under coach Pellegrino Matarazzo. BVB professional Rami Bensebaini was shown a yellow-red card for knocking the ball away (71′). (dpa/sih)
