Werder 1-2 Dortmund: Reus’s strike helps Dortmund snatch late win

Marco Reus-Borussia Dortmund

Dortmund are victorious in the first match under Edin Terzic.

Erin Terzic has passed his first test as the new caretaker manager of Borussia Dortmund, who secured a thrilling late win against the home side Werder Bremen.

Dortmund were coming on the back of the 5-1 defeat against Stuttgart, which eventually cost then manager Lucian Favre his job.

However, Terzic didn’t show any pressure on his face and meanwhile, Raphael Guerreiro put the visitors ahead after a goal from the corner kick.

Dortmund looked as if they had returned to square one when they conceded an equaliser not long after, with Kevin Mohwald finding the nets.

Die Borussen handed Youssoufa Moukoko his full debut in which he had a couple of good chances to find his name on the scoresheet, but unfortunately, he couldn’t.

However, the 16-year-old still won his side a penalty in the final quarter of the game after he was fouled by Werder Bremen goalkeeper Pavlenka.

Marco Reus stepped up to convert the penalty and he was denied by the keeper on the first attempt; luckily, the ball fell in the path of the German ace on the rebound as he buried the ball into the nets on the second opportunity.

Following the win, Dortmund were able to end their three-match winless streak in Bundesliga.

The win has also come at the right time as Dortmund joins a taut race for the Bundesliga title as they are now fourth in the table.

It remains to be seen whether the new makeshift manager Terzic could lead Die Borussen to the title this season.
