Thomas Meunier has scored his first goals of the season, paving the way for Dortmund’s smooth 5-1 win against Freiburg. The Red Devil made the 1-0 and 2-0. Erling Haaland also scored twice, Dahoud once. Dortmund is approaching 3 points from leader Bayern, which will go to Cologne tomorrow.
First goals from Meunier, of the match and of the season
The Red Devil had not yet found his way to the net this season. But his New Year’s resolutions came true right now. The winger headed in a corner from Brandt after fifteen minutes and did it again after half an hour, but with a corner from the other side.
Since Meunier ended up in Dortmund in 2020, he had only scored 1 goal in the Bundesliga. So there are now 3.
Haaland was dry for 2 matches and he thought that was enough. Shortly before the break, the Norwegian decided the game completely: he finished a pass from Bellingham beautifully.
Demirovic was able to moderate for a while, but there was no cure against Borussia. Haaland netted his second of the evening, his 55th goal in 56 Bundesliga matches. Dahoud secured the final score with a mighty shot.
