Jadon Sancho, Erling Haaland And Marco Reus Combine For Ultimate Counterattacking Goal
| Last updated
Borussia Dortmund scored a stunning goal in the DFB Cup as Jadon Sancho, Erling Haaland and Marco Reus sprung a rapid counterattack.
The goal actually came from a Borussia Monchengladbach corner. But within seconds, Sancho was firing into the net at the other end of the pitch - it was slick, incisive, top-speed stuff.
Nico Schulz began the move as he stole back possession inside his own box, then bombed forward - as Haaland rampaged through the centre circle - and Schulz fed him the ball.
Haaland's first-time pass then found Reus, and - although the Norwegian beast continued his run - Reus neatly threaded in Sancho. The England international took one touch, then fired the ball in off the inside of the post.
Borussia Dortmund have had their struggles to find top form this season, but this was vintage BVB.
A full-throttle counterattack with just a handful of touches, before the ball hit the back of the net.
The second-half strike proved to be the only goal of the game as the away side knocked Gladbach out of the cup at the quarter-final stage (despite Mahmoud Dahoud's late red card).
Worrying signs for Germany's sides - and for Europe's best in the Champions League - if Borussia Dortmund are finally finding this kind of form.
