Wolfsburg 0-2 Borussia Dortmund: Sancho shines with assist as BVB keep pressure on Bayern
Raphael Guerreiro and Achraf Hakimi got the goals in another important Borussia Dortmund win at Wolfsburg.
Borussia Dortmund kept the heat on Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich ahead of Der Klassiker with a 2-0 win at 10-man Wolfsburg on Saturday.
A sixth straight league victory for Dortmund was not nearly as impressive as last weekend’s crushing of rivals Schalke but again moved Lucien Favre’s challengers to within a point of Bayern prior to the late kick-off between the defending champions and Eintracht Frankfurt.
Wolfsburg were picked apart by neat work down the right that freed Thorgan Hazard at the byline, with a low centre just evading a tumbling Erling Haaland and instead reaching Guerreiro at the far post for a simple tap-in.
Dortmund settled the match as substitute Jadon Sancho raced into the final third and fed Hakimi for a simple second.
A VAR review saw Felix Klaus dismissed for a challenge on Manuel Akanji, bringing an end to any faint hopes of a Wolfsburg comeback.
