(Borussia Dortmund – Schalke 04 3-0) The district derby is the biggest stage for German football. Erling Braut Haaland does very well on this stage.
It is in these matches that the legends are born in Dortmund, said Viasat commentator Eivind Bisgaard Sundet.
He said that shortly after Haaland scored his seventh goal this season – and the second in so many games against Schalke 04.

The district derby, the classic between Borussia Dortmund and Schalke 04, is considered by many to be Germany’s greatest classic. The official Bundesliga website calls her “the mother of all classics” and is just 30 km between Dortmund and Gelsenkirchen.
And it is about to become Erling Braut Haaland’s favorite game.
Two against two
He played a lot in the 4-0 win with goals and goals against Schalke in May, and on Saturday he scored another goal, a few days after he scored a beautiful goal in the Champions League against Lazio.
Sørloth with lucky scorer – silent about the noise of the national team
This time, he combined very well with Jadon Sancho. First, Haaland kept the ball in his legs for a long time, dribbled by one and two and waited to take his teammates with him. Then he left it to Sancho.
The Englishman took the ball in his legs and accelerated towards Schalke’s defense. They retreated and retreated, and Haaland got some space to run.
Sancho released Haaland with a perfect weight pass and, alone with Frederik Rønnow, he kicked the ball elegantly – with the weakest right leg – into the goal.
He created it – and finished it:
– It was just to lower my neck, run and got the ball perfectly. So it was a perfect chip. I put on their heads every day that I want the ball when I am in good position, said Haaland in an interview with Viasport after the match.
It was Dortmund’s second goal of the night, after a frustrating night.
For the home team fought for a long time against Schalke’s goal, but Haaland, Sancho, Gio Reyna and Julian Brandt abused the few opportunities they had before a low and compact Schalke team.
Only Carew can match Haaland in hysteria
With Dortmund’s many offensive stars, it took a midfielder to open a hole in the famous hurricane.
The night of the stops
A practiced curve variant ended with a return from Rönnow, which Akanji was the first. He shoved the ball into the goal, securing Dortmund’s lead in his first game back. He has had a corona infection since the selection interval.
The 1-0 score gave Dortmund’s team confidence, and with the 2-0 score for Haaland, they really got the game in their way. The Dortmund midfielders were in danger at Signal Iduna Park and, on 78 minutes, Mats Hummels also made his mark on the marker list. The German climbed to the top of a corner and stabbed the cash ball in the goal.
The victory was important for Dortmund, who were the last in action by the main German teams.
The previous Saturday, RB Leipzig, with Alexander Sørloth from the start, was in action, as was Bayern Munich. Both won their games and, as Dortmund did the same, are one point ahead of Bayern – and behind leader Leipzig.
