After an underwhelming first half which saw Wolfsburg create the better chances, Borussia Dortmund took the lead through Manuel Akanji, with the centre-back heading home from Jadon Sancho’s corner. The Englishman then turned from provider to scorer, as his 92nd minute goal sealed a hard-fought win for the Black and Yellows.
Both teams had enough chances over the course of the 90 minutes, but ultimately, it was Borussia Dortmund’s quality in front of goal in the second half that made the difference. Edin Terzic will be pleased with the way his side defended. While Jadon Sancho’s first league goal of the season will no doubt give him some much needed confidence.
The win helped Borussia Dortmund leapfrog Wolfsburg and move up to fourth place in the Bundesliga table.
