Borussia Dortmund, who was losing during an important part of the game, reacted in time and won 3-1 as a visitor in Freiburg, this Friday in the second day of the Bundesliga, where they became the provisional leader.
With a total of six points in two games, Dortmund is installed at the top, waiting for the rest of the games, especially that of Bayern Munich, which on Sunday hosts Wolfsburg at the Allianz Arena.
In Friday’s game, Freiburg opened the scoring with a header from Austrian Michael Gregoritsch in the 35th minute.
Borussia Dortmund crashed again and again in their attempt to tie, until a mistake by the local goalkeeper, Mark Flekken, allowed the 1-1. The goalkeeper could not stop a long shot with the left foot of right-hander Jamie Bynoe-Gittens (77′).
Seven minutes later (84′) it was the 17-year-old Youssoufa Moukoko who scored for Dortmund, while full-back Marius Wolf (88′) sentenced in the closing moments.
“We have fought and we have scored three goals with three players who had started as substitutes. This shows how good our squad is,” said Dortmund coach Edin Terzic.
It was the first game for Frenchman Anthony Modeste at the top of Borussia Dortmund’s attack. He recently arrived at that club to make up for several months’ absence from Ivorian Sebastien Haller, who was diagnosed with testicular cancer.
Modeste had two good chances, first in minute 22 with a shot that lacked power, and then in minute 38, sending it wide.
Borussia Dortmund will play on matchday three at home, against Werder Bremen, on Saturday next week.
