Game in short: BVB mistakes are punished
BVB had a very poor start to the game at Ibrox. James Tavernier scored a penalty for Rangers in the 22nd minute after Julian Brandt fouled Ryan Kent in the penalty area. After half an hour, however, Dortmund got the better of the game and immediately rewarded themselves. Jude Bellingham equalized first, and just before the break, Donil Malen scored from close range to propel the visitors forward.
After the break, Rangers switched to a five-man defense and caused major problems for BVB. For their part, the Scottish record champions became more and more dangerous on the offensive and equalized after only an hour. After a kick off the ball by Matt Hummels, Tavernier broke free at the far post and was caught in the net. Dortmund have now thrown everything forward. But now it is not enough for Marco Reus to have more than one big opportunity. Rangers are in the round of 16, BVB are also out in the Europa League.
James Tavernier, Rangers Captain: “We want to play against the best and still have some very tough opponents in the competition. We also want to go through the round of 16. Let’s see who we are up against.”
Matt Hummels, BVB Defender: “We actually put them in the sack completely in the first half. They were still serving very well even with the 2-1 win. But we come out very badly in the half and let them play. Bring it back in. Then I make a mistake to make it 2:2, then it’s back to the stadium. The opponent is coming back, they were already incredibly nervous. We lost it at Dortmund. But we got it Could have changed today.”
Karl-Heinz Riedl, RTL
