The eighth day of the Bundesliga featured a duel between Hertha Berlin and Borussia Dortmund, in the German capital. Only 13th but with a large success before the break, the Berliners presented themselves with Mattéo Guendouzi in the midfield, while Lucas Tousart started on the bench. If the attacking duo of HBSC were named Piatek-Lukebakio, the first goalscorer of the evening was the Brazilian Matheus Cunha. Bought 18 million euros in Leipzig in January, the U23 international with Brazil is gaining momentum with Berlin. 7 goals and 4 assists in 9 matches played this season (including tonight). He took advantage this evening of a service from Lukebakio to arm a superb right-footed shot from outside the area and deceive Bürki (1-0, 33rd). Opposite, the BvB had its entire armada.
It was not until the second period to see the Golden Boy Erling Braut Haaland get to work. He first equalized alone against goal, after a nice three-way movement with Reus and Can (1-1, 47th). The Norwegian doubled the lead in the wake, sublimely served by Brandt in the back of the Berlin defense. He adjusted Alexander Schwolow with a cross shot with his left foot (1-2, 49th). The recital continued when Cunha pressed her pass too much towards Marvin Plattenhardt. Erling the King intercepted and penetrated powerfully into the area before finishing against an overtaken Schwolow (1-3, 62nd). Raphaël Guerreiro took part in the party (1-4, 70th), before Matheus Cunha scored the goal of the double from the penalty spot (2-4, 79th). The last word was for Haaland, who took advantage of a service from Jude Bellingham, 17, to register a powerful quadruplet (2-5, 79th). The quadruple scorer gave way to Youssoufa Moukoko, 16, five minutes from time. Dortmund climbed to 2nd row, Haaland (10) is only one goal away from Lewandowski (11)!
