Status: 10/05/2022 10:54 PM

Borussia Dortmund scored three important points towards the round of 16 in the Champions League with an outside temperature of 30 degrees and won 4-1 (3-0) at FC Sevilla.

The 4-1 win keeps BVB in second place, six points behind Manchester City (nine points). Behind them, Sevilla and Copenhagen each have a point in their account.

The goals were scored by Raphael Guerreiro (6th minute), Jude Bellingham (41st), Karim Adeyemi (43rd) and Julian Brandt (75th). Youssef En-Nesyri scored the goal to make it 1:3 (51st).

Moukoko starts – Modeste alone on the bench

Youngster Youssoufa Moukoko started at Dortmund from the start. After disappointing performances in recent weeks, Anthony Modeste was left alone with the joker role.

In the jersey of 1. FC Köln, Anthony Modeste scored in every second game. In Dortmund, on the other hand, he is unlucky – and under pressure for his return.

Early Dortmund leadership

A beautiful goal by Raphael Guerreiro gave BVB an early lead. After a pass from Jude Bellinheim, Guerreiro took advantage of the space on the left and fired with his left foot just outside the edge of the penalty area – the ball hit the top right corner of the goal (6′).

Unfazed in front of their own audience, Sevilla almost equalized five minutes from behind. Dortmund goalkeeper Alexander Meyer thwarted En-Nesyri twice after the keeper had to parry the Moroccan’s first shot (11′).

Red card has been withdrawn

After 20 minutes the tension was high. After an emergency brake against Dortmunder Salih Özcan, En-Nesyri saw the red card. After video evidence, referee Maurizio Mariani withdrew the resignation. The emergency brake was preceded by a foul by Dortmund’s Karim Adeyemi.

Despite the high temperatures, both teams played intensively. After a quick counterattack from Dortmund, Thomas Meunier and Moukoko missed the 2-0 lead after a strong pass from Adeyemi (33rd).

Dortmund double strike before the break

But Sevilla also created great opportunities. Meyer parried a header from En-Nesyri from close range with a strong reflex (37′).

Things got rough before the break. After a nice pass from Özcan in the interface, Jude Bellingham nibbled his opponent in a one-on-one and jabbed the ball low into the far post (41′).

Just two minutes later, Adeyemi followed BVB’s lead. Sevilla goalkeeper Bono initially blocked Moukoko’s shot – Adeyemi converted the follow-up shot into 3-0 at halftime (43 minutes).

Sevilla score a goal – Brandt reacts

At the first chance in the second round, the most outstanding man on the field scored the goal. After a corner, En-Nesyri won on the penalty spot from Nico Schlotterbeck and nodded away to make it 1:3 (51st).

In direct exchange, the very agile Moukoko failed from 17 meters to Sevilla goalkeeper Bono (53rd). Both teams played for the next goal in this phase. Alex Telles missed the 2:3 with the next shot just wide of the goal (57th), Moukoko with a lob over the goal made the provisional decision (61st).

After several substitutions on both sides, the game lost momentum and danger of goal. Julian Brandt made the provisional decision with a header after a cross by Moukoko (75′). Donyell Malen even missed the 5:1 (85th) shortly before the end.

Borussia Dortmund will continue on Saturday evening (6.30 p.m.) in the Bundesliga top match against FC Bayern Munich.
