Borussia Dortmund Show No Signs Of Slowing Down As They Scourge SC Paderborn By 6-1

Although Borussia Dortmund might have missed their opportunity to claim the Bundesliga title this season when they lost to Bayern Munich in matchday 28, Dortmund showed that they are still eager to run the hard yards in order to put pressure on Bayern Munich on top of the table and beat SC Paderborn by 6-1.

For Borussia Dortmund, Jadon Sancho scored his first-ever league hat-trick in the game. Apart from him, Thorgan Hazard, Achraf Hakimi, and Marcel Schmelzer were the other three goalscorers. Uwe Hunemeier scored the lone goal as he converted from a penalty in the second half.

Borussia Dortmund are now seven points behind Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga title race and Bayern have a couple of difficult fixtures ahead in comparison to the Men in Yellow.

Borussia Dortmund Held Their Nerves In The First Half

The first half of the game saw no goals as both the teams lacked intent to create an opportunity for themselves. Dortmund made a lot of good runs in the midfield but they failed to convert their passes into goals and had only three shots on target when the first half came to a close.

For SC Paderborn, they did not enjoy the majority of the possession in the first half as Dortmund had nearly 70 per cent ball possession in the first 45 minutes. The teams headed into the tunnel with a goalless scoresheet at the end of the first half.

The Second Half Witnessed The Goal Fest

The second half was comparatively more aggressive than the first one. Dortmund applied constant pressure on the Paderborn goal and fired in 13 shots in the second half. As a result, Thorgan Hazard broke the jinx and smashed the first goal for Dortmund in the 54th minute. Jadon Sancho scored his first goal in the 57th minute giving Dortmund a 2-0 lead.

Marcel Schmelzer also got his first goal for Dortmund in the 89th minute. Sancho completed his hat-trick in injury time and ensured Dortmund’s victory.
