Borussia Dortmund settled FC Union Berlin on Sunday evening. For their own audience, the team of trainer Marco Rose was too strong for the visitors from Berlin with 4-2. Donyell Malen started from the base, but did not complete the ninety minutes. Even after Sunday, the purchase of thirty million euros still has to wait for his first goal in the service of the German superpower.
The game was ten minutes away when Malen received the ball on the left. The ball eventually ended up with Raphael Guerreiro who saw a hole and took advantage of it with an incredible powder. He took care of the 1-0 from a difficult angle from the tip of the penalty area. Ten minutes later it was again hit for Dortmund. After a good interception by Mats Hummels, Malen acted as an intermediate station and the ball ended up with Thomas Meunier. The Belgian international delivered a measured cross to the head of Erling Braut Haaland: 2-0.
Shortly after the break, the game seemed over when Marvin Friedrich unluckily pushed the ball behind his own goalkeeper. Still, Union Berlin came back into the game. Max Kruse gave the visitors hope with a good penalty kick. With a 3-1 lead, Malen’s game was over after 73 minutes. From the bench he saw how Andreas Voglsammer made it 3-2 minutes after his substitute. In the end, it was Haaland who took all hope away from Union Berlin by taking care of the 4-2 ten minutes before time. After a deep ball from Hummels, the Norwegian attacker hit the target in an acrobatic way.
