Julian Brandt (26) crosses, Haller deliberately allows himself to be tunneled to make room for the free-standing Karim Adeyemi (21). With success! The DFB professional pushes in dry from 13 meters to make it 1-0. For Adeyemi it is the first league goal for Dortmund.

But not only Leverkusen have to take a bankruptcy that evening: It is also a used evening for Youssoufa Moukoko (18). The top talent was on the bench for 90 minutes. Even Anthony Modeste (34) was given priority over him and was substituted on – after Moukoko had just extended his contract and wanted to assert himself in Borussia’s regular formation. But that didn’t dampen his mood. After the final whistle, the clipper celebrated victory with his teammates in front of the fans in the curve.
