Dortmund, without Haaland, beat Hertha by a minimum

The Borussia Dortmund of Lucien Favre added a victory by the minimum by 1-0 before a leathery Hertha Berlin, which was always very well planted on the grass. Emre Can He managed the only goal of the game in the second half to unblock the team, when everything seemed to indicate the tie between the two at Signal Iduna Park.

In addition, today was the ideal day to get a return on a victory, since its maximum rivals in the race for positions Champions they added bad results after the defeat of the Gladbach against Freiburg, the defeat of the Leverkusen against the almighty Bayern and the sad draw of the Leipzig before the bottom side Paderborn.

Without Haaland, Dortmund took the field without his main knife in the attack, and that is that the young Norwegian striker was monopolizing the vast majority of the team's goals. For this reason, Favre opted for his fast lanes as they are Raphaël Guerreiro and Achraf Hakimi, to try to generate spaces by the bands.

However, the first half was rather decaf for the locals. They hardly affected and generated danger on the Hertha goal defended by the goalkeeper Rune Jarstein. Achraf, with his characteristic overflow, signed the first occasion for Dortmund in the 7 ’, despite the fact that he finally failed to materialize the shot when listing the bottom line. The second, and last chance of the ‘yellows’ in the first half, had the signature of a midfielder Julian Brandt, who tried his luck with a forced shot from outside the box.

On resumption, Dortmund came out with another face to the field of play, and it didn't take long to warn. First, Sancho in the 50 'was close to opening the can with a point-blank shot, but strangely, he went outside. Shortly after, in 57 ’, in a vertigo triangulation between Sancho and Brandt, both appeared Emre Can coming from second line.

A goal, which gave Favre wings, since before they barely created danger on the pitch. Although Hertha tried to add meters in attack by making several offensive changes for the final part of the match, those of Bruno Labbadia they finally perished on shore by the low in Signal Iduna Park.
