With an absolute thriller that gave us five goals, Borussia Dortmund won the match against Stuttgart with a Knauff scorcher. 

Borussia Dortmund maintains their hopes to finish inside the Bundesliga’s Top Four after today’s five-goal thriller against Stuttgart. Erling Haaland and Jadon Sancho’s future at the club depends on how well they finish this season. If they get to the fourth position, they might be able to convince them to stay for another season. In order to do that, they needed a victory against Stuttgart tonight at Mercedes-Benz Arena.

Kalajdzic opened the count with an impressive header early in the first half, but Dortmund responded until the second half. Jude Bellingham completed another great performance in the same week with the first equalizer of the night. Marco Reus scored a quick turnaround after a brilliant movement from Erling Haaland, who was absolutely crucial for his side tonight. The T-1000 didn’t score but he was still essential for the result. 

Knauff scores a scorcher on his debut. 

Stuttgart managed to score the equalizer to prop things up in this amazing match through Didavi in a counter-attack. But youngster Ansgar Knauff never imagined the night that was expecting him. He didn’t think his first Bundesliga goal would be this important for Borussia Dortmund. Erling Haaland was at the center of this moment once again with the assist for the 19-year-old.

A last-minute goal that gave us one of the most thrilling football nights on Saturday. These three points keep Dortmund seven points away from the Top Four but still a long way to go. The Bundesliga is more exciting than ever before, especially after many results in various other matches. But there’s no question that Dortmund and Stuttgart gave us the best match of the weekend from Germany.
