Soccer was one of the great protagonists among the Spanish population on a Saturday day in which Pedro Sánchez announced that the League is authorized to return to the competition from June 8. The wait is no longer so long and has a final date – in the absence of the final agreement of clubs, players and estates – and meanwhile, the most faithful fans of the king’s sport were able to enjoy a second day of the Bundesliga, after the break, again with strong emotions and a remarkable show. Dortmund and Leverkusen, the two heavyweights in the 15:30 matches, achieved their respective victories with considerable superiority in two difficult outings, against Wolfsburg and Borussia Monchengladbach.
The Borussia DortmundAs it happened last week, he was the main character of the first turn, with a confrontation with Wolfsburg, this time as a visitor, and the incentive to follow the evolutions of Erling Braut Haaland, the fashionable man in European football. Lucien Favre returned to leave Jadon Sancho on the bench, without the necessary form in the resumption of the competition, and traced an eleven in which Madrid player Achraf Hakimi also stood out, in his last weeks before returning to the Santiago Bernabéu.
In addition to Wolfsburg-Dortmund, three other matches were also held from 3:30 pm, and it goes without saying that with the security measures stipulated in strict compliance. Borussia Monchengladbach, one of the protagonists of the restart day, would receive a Bayer Leverkusen in which Kai Havertz The balance tipped again as soon as it started with two opposing actions. In the first, unfortunate and fortuitous, he injured one of the rival referents, Breel Embolo, after an involuntary kick. Then, showing off his punch, he calmly defined against Sommer to put the 0-1 in the light.
Havertz and Achraf put the icing on the cake
Returning to meet the Wolkswagen Arena, Dortmund managed possession against a good Wolfsburg, especially in withdrawal and order. Haaland could not appear, but a triangulation already past the equator of the first half activated the quality of another of the Borussers references, a Julian Brandt who started a play that was going to end the left, in semifallo, of the own Haaland and the shot to goal of Guerreiro, All-out midfielder who has reached the zenith in the Favre three-center and false-lane system.
The second half did not have the give and take of the last day, but a lot of emotion, with a new goal from Havertz that unbalanced, from a penalty, the balance after the tie, with a great goal by Marcus Thuram. Bender would put the icing on the cake in the last few minutes to confirm in 2/2 of one of the candidates to enter the Champions League next season. Dortmund, meanwhile, also closed the victory in Wolfsburg, with a second goal from the wings, in this case by an Achraf who has proven to be one of the differential elements not only of the Favre team, but of the entire Bundesliga.
