Much Haaland for so little Schalke

Sergio Escario Barcelona Editor

A Borussia
Dortmund that came from attacking Sánchez Pizjuán in the first leg of the eighth of the Champions
League passed with flying colors the tough exam that playing the Derby
Ruhr (0-4), no matter how deep a Schalke
04 whose salvation seems increasingly utopian.

Led by Jadon
Sancho and a beast named
Haaland, those of Edin
Terzik they passed over ‘the miners’, whose badge made an appearance even before the initial whistle. Shkodran
Mustafi, one of his brand new signings during the last winter market, had problems during the warm-up and could not be from the game.

Fahrmann, also KO

Once the match has started, its starting goalkeeper Ralf
Fahrmann was injured after a slip and a subsequent collision with Haaland and had to be replaced by Michael
Langer. Little could the Austrian do, who had only played one match of Bundesliga this season, before the gale ‘borussier’ that came shortly after entering the pitch.

Sancho added one more goal and an assist to his impressive start to 2021. The England winger capitalized on an error by Benjamin
Stambouli in the exit of the ball to inaugurate the scoreboard and gave the pass of the second: a work of art of Haaland, with an acrobatic finish in the purest style Frame
Enough put land in between.

If something cannot be attributed to this Schalke It is his commendable attitude, which he clung to to try to get into the game after the restart. But in a choral action of the Borussia, Raphael
Guerreiro took advantage of a great pass to the laying of Frame
Reus, who played 300 games in Bundesliga, to bury the hopes of the ‘miners’.

Haaland, 17 goals in 17 games

A goal that enraged the locals and raised the tension of a game that ended Haaland with his 17th goal in 17 matches of Bundesliga.
