For a long time, little happened in the Alte Försterei, but then events passed. As Dortmund slept twice in Berlin corners, super talent Moukoko’s first Bundesliga goal was worthless to BVB.
In the second match under new coach Edin Terzic, Borussia Dortmund loses for the first time. In the away match at Union Berlin it is a 1: 2 defeat. And that despite the fact that super talent Youssufa Moukoko scored his first goal in the Bundesliga.
BVB made unnecessary mistakes in the set-up and sometimes played too clumsy. The ball possession of almost 70 percent in the first half was too rarely used by Dortmund in dangerous scenes in front of the Berliner Tor. In one of the few finishes Moukoko was unlucky, his shot only hit the post (45th).
Terzic had warned against the brave and stable Berliners, who held back with great difficulty even after the break. Cedric Teuchert tested Bürki (54th), before Taiwo Awoniyi took the lead after a corner kick from standard specialist Christopher Trimmel (57th).
It only took three minutes. 16-year-old Moukoko scored 1: 1 for BVB with a powerful left foot shot from a tight angle (60th).
Moukoko became the youngest Bundesliga scorer in history at the age of 16 years and 28 days.
Dortmund sleeps in standard situations
In a way, this closes the circle for the striker. On November 21, he celebrated his Bundesliga premiere in Berlin as the youngest player ever. And once again Berlin is the stage for its first goal in the first competition.
That it wasn’t enough to count anything was due to the repeated Dortmund sleepiness in one corner of the Unioners. In the 78th minute Teuchert brought the ball from the right to the middle, where Friedrich was able to head completely free to win.
This means that Borussia’s resurgence under the new coach has stopped.
A disappointed BVB goalkeeper Roman Bürki said in an interview with ZDF: “I think we play very inefficiently. We don’t reward ourselves enough.”
About the goals awarded, he said: “It has to do with self-discipline.”
Due to the defeat, BVB loses contact with the top flight of the competition. Tomorrow the gap to first place could be nine points. Bürki: “At the moment we have other problems than the table.”
