It took a lot of suffering. However, Borussia Dortmund reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League, after defeating PSV Eindhoven 2-0. The first leg ended in a 1-1 draw, but the performance on German soil, with Jadon Sancho and Marco Reus in the spotlight, secured one of the last tickets to the next stage of the competition.

All that remains is to know the result of one match (Atletico Madrid – Internazionale). Moreover, Manchester City, Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Arsenal already know that they will qualify for the quarter-finals, but the task for Edin Terzic's men was not easy at all…

Explosive entry

It would be hard to imagine a better start at Signal Iduna Park, a sporting venue packed with thousands of spectators to host another emotional European night. Not all fans sat down when Jadon Sancho opened the scoring with a low shot. The Englishman, who is going through a wonderful phase of the season, was once again the hero in a Borussia shirt.

In fact, this trend was observed for most of the first half. The home team, always calm and composed, were on top and rarely allowed their rivals to create chances and test the reactions of Gregor Kupil, who was merely a spectator. It was therefore necessary to change the strategy to try to get back into the qualifying discussion.

The change came in the final minutes of the first half. PSV Eindhoven advanced to the lines and insisted on controlling the ball. The high pressing forced the opposition defenders to play a more direct game, which resulted in some losing possession and creating chances for the Dutch team.

Johan Bakayoko and Luuk de Jong, two of the attacking trio, tried their luck but it did no good in tying the match. However, it was the last photo left by the foreigners before heading to the resorts mouth wateringWhere it ended up being sticky, especially when the match resumed.

Pass through the big door

Hirving Lozano was part of PSV's new image. The Mexican, who was sent on at half-time to replace Gus Till, was a real nightmare for defenders. With a speed that was very difficult to stop, the number 27 was in a constant duel with Gregor Kupil, a goalkeeper who always had the upper hand, but who could not escape some concerns.

The greatest horror ended at the opposite goal: Niklas Volkrug, after a cross from Marco Reus, succeeded in converting the ball and putting his name on the scoresheet. However, Daniele Orsato, after listening to the video referee, canceled the transfer deal for the striker, who has only one goal in European competition.

There were only a few minutes left until the final whistle and the Dutch continued to attack. Lozano, Bakayoko, Luuk de Jong… they all tried, especially the latter who had the best chance of the whole match. After triangulating with his teammate, he shot well above the intended target. Whoever does not register suffers.

In the last minute of stoppage time, Marco Reus took advantage of poor defensive attention and put an end to the win at home. After two games without leaving the bench, the historic striker came on to ensure peace of mind with European undertones. My hair.
