Wolfsburg 0-2 Dortmund: Haaland brace hands Dortmund a crucial win in the top-four race

Erling Haaland-Borussia Dortmund

Borussia Dortmund continued their impressive run in Bundesliga with an emphatic win over third-place VfL Wolfsburg.

Borussia Dortmund picked up a clinical 2-0 win against Wolfsburg as Erling Haaland starred with a stunning double.

Edin Terzic looked to build on their impressive run in their last few games – four out of four wins – and to make up for the troubled season. However, they were up against tough-looking Wolfsburg, who have surged to third place in the table.

It was Dortmund who struck first courtesy of their top scorer, Erling Haaland. The Norwegian pounced on Wolfsburg’s defensive make to make a daunting run before burying the nets.

Die Borussen suffered a setback around the hour-mark after Jude Bellingham picked up his second yellow of the game, which reduced his side to ten men. 

Nonetheless, Haaland scored his second of the game shortly after the red card incident, and the strike proved to be decisive in the end.

Haaland moved his goal tally to 25 in 26 Bundesliga appearances this season, with his overall tally of this season for Dortmund rising to 36 goals. The 20-year-old has also scored a handful of brace this season, with his recent one coming in the win against Union Berlin.

Edin Terzic would be a happy man after seeing his side produce such an impressive performance against the third-place Wolfsburg.

Dortmund have extended their winning run to five games in the German top-flight, which has seen them get closer to fourth-place Eintracht Frankfurt but would look to continue their momentum in the hunt for the Champions League places.
