Borussia Dortmund lost this Saturday against Eintracht Frankfurt (2-1), on the sidelines of the 27th day of the Bundesliga. Erling Haaland (still silent in the face of goal) and his family again let points slip in the race for qualification for the Champions League.
Borussia Dortmund found their den at Signal Iduna Park on Saturday after two weeks of international break. Edin Terzic’s men received Eintracht Frankfurt with the goal of winning against a direct competitor for Champions League qualification. It was missed, with a 2-1 loss that could be costly.
Mute with Norway, Erling Haaland found the tip of the attack and hoped to find the net before the shock against Manchester City (to be followed on RMC Sport 2 on Tuesday, April 6). Missed there again. The meeting started off badly for the Borrusen. Former Hoffenheim resident Nico Schulz deflected the ball into his own cages to give Eintracht the lead.
Erling Haaland had the opportunity to allow his team to pick up the score but missed the target. Not successful at the moment, silent on the three games with his selection during the international break, the Norwegian has not scored at Signal Iduna Park for three games now.
Dortmund relied on captain Mats Hummels to equalize. The 32-year-old center-back managed to cheat Kevin Trapp just before half-time to equalize.
Dortmund cracks in the last minutes
Back from the locker room, Stefan Ilsanker played a terrible trick in Dortmund … but saw his goal be refused for an offside after the intervention of the VAR. The score was on track to stop there but it was without counting on André Silva. Well served by Filip Kostic, the Portuguese crucified BVB to score his 21st goal of the season in the league.
With this new setback, Borussia Dortmund signs their 10th defeat of the season in the Bundesliga and sees a possible qualification in the Champions League move away, while Eintracht widens the gap and now has a seven-point lead. Before the trip to the Manchester City lawn, Dortmund put themselves in a delicate position. Erling Haaland has still not scored. Against the backdrop of rumors around a possible departure this summer.
