Marcel Sabitzer shoots Borussia Dortmund to victory

As of: April 13, 2024 5:41 p.m

A double strike from Marcel Sabitzer gave Borussia Dortmund a 2-1 (2-1) win in Mönchengladbach on Saturday (04/13/24). A third goal by the Austrian was rightly not recognized.

First, Sabitzer used a pass from Nico Schlotterbeck (22nd), before sinking a justified penalty just six minutes later to make it 2-0. After a corner from the right side, Max Wöber scored with a header and shortened the score for Gladbach. Early in the second half of the game, Karim Adeyemi was sent off with his second yellow card. BVB remains in fifth place in the table and still hopes to take part in the Champions League. Borussia Mönchengladbach, in eleventh place, is five points away from the relegation spot.

A second penalty goal by Sabitzer was not recognized because the check for a possible foul by Gladbach goalkeeper Jonas Omlin on Karim Adeyemi had not yet been completed at the time it was taken. As a result, the penalty whistle was overturned by referee Florian Badstübner.

Gladbach reserved

The Black and Yellows gained clear early possession and field advantages with very reserved foals, but failed to get into positions ready to score in the first quarter of an hour. In the 22nd minute, BVB was able to take advantage of its first opportunity: Sabitzer used Schlotterbecks’ pass from a tight angle.

Edin Terzić’s team stayed on the trigger and were awarded a penalty after Nathan N’Goumous fouled Schlotterbeck, which Sabitzer safely converted.

Unexpectedly, the Seoane team then converted a corner into the goal; Wöber scored with his head completely free after Honorat’s cross. A little later Gladbach even had a chance to equalize through Honorat (39′).

Turbulent second half of the game

The second half was characterized more by oddities than by top-class scoring opportunities. First, Sabitzer converted the penalty, even though Badstübner had not yet released the game after his penalty whistle. Sabitzer said he heard a whistle in the stadium. There was no repeat because the referee decided after studying the video images that Omlin’s defensive action against Adeyemi was not worthy of punishment.

The second yellow-worthy foul by Adeyemi, who had somewhat unmotivatedly brought down Stefan Lainer, posed some puzzles. In stoppage time in the first half, Adeyemi knocked Honorat down.

Good chances to score late in the second period

Deep into the second half, both teams still had good chances to score: First Marius Wolf shot at the Gladbach goal from a tight angle on the right, Omlin parried with his chest. Tomas Čvančara broke through on the left in the Dortmund penalty area, and Gregor Kobel in the BVB box also cleared with his chest. Alassane Pléa failed with his attempt to score against the cautious Schlotterbeck.
