Borussia Dortmund takes control of the Bundesliga title race with a 3-0 win over Augsburg

Borussia Dortmund has taken control of the Bundesliga title race by beating Augsburg 3-0 on Sunday. The win has put them ahead of Bayern Munich and into the top spot going into next week’s season finale. The win was thanks to striker Sebastien Haller, who scored two goals during the match, and Julian Brandt, who completed the win with a stoppage-time goal.

Match Summary

In the first half, Dortmund had 16 shots on goal to Augsburg’s one and hit the post through Niklas Sule, but were unable to score even when Augsburg was left with 10 men following the dismissal of Felix Uduokhai in the 38th minute. Emre Can also hit the woodwork after the restart, but the deadlock was finally broken through Haller when he slotted in off the post in the 58th minute.

Augsburg responded instantly with a chance of their own, but Dortmund’s keeper, Gregor Kobel, did well to stop Irvin Cardona’s shot from 10 metres. Haller, who had missed much of the season after being diagnosed with testicular cancer last year, settled Dortmund’s nerves with a tap-in before Brandt completed their win.

Dortmund’s Chance to Win the Title

Borussia Dortmund’s last title win came in 2012 under then-coach Jurgen Klopp. This year, they have a chance to win the title, but it has not been an easy season for them. Dortmund coach Edin Terzic said, “We have suffered, and we had to sweat a lot, not only this season. Now it is about taking that last step together with our fans in our stadium in our city and bringing the league trophy finally back to Dortmund.”

Terzic also added that this has not been the season of missed chances, but the season of setbacks. Dortmund has invested a lot this season, and now they have a chance to achieve something big. There is no magic; it is about investing, and then it comes.

Bayern Munich’s Chances

Bayern Munich, who have won the last 10 league titles, suffered a shock 3-1 home loss to RB Leipzig on Saturday. They now have to travel to Cologne in their season finale. Dortmund will host Mainz on the last matchday.
