BundesligaDoniel Malin failed to win his first match as a starter for Borussia Dortmund. Goalkeeper Mark Flex lost 2-1 in a visit to Freiburg. Mark van Bommel and Voet Wijhorst also won the second game of the season and are thus at the top of the German Bundesliga.
Malin has always started on the bench against Wien Wiesbaden in the cup tournament, against Eintracht Frankfurt in the league and also against Bayern Munich in the German Super Cup battle. On a visit to SC Freiburg, the former PSV Eindhoven player began the attack alongside Erling Haaland.
Malin’s position initially was also good news for Louis van Gaal. The national team coach included the attacker in his pre-selection for the next three matches in the World Cup qualifiers and said he usually selects only players who are fit and play a lot. Make an exception for Malin. “Only one player played less than 90 minutes in a row. That’s Doniel Malin. So Van Gals’s choice wasn’t his choice. But I also need strikers and goals. Otherwise we wouldn’t win.”
Despite his position at the start, Malin, who received a yellow card before the end of the first half, could not prevent the defeat of Borussia Dortmund. Vincenzo Griveaux hit a superb free kick against the ropes after six minutes, and after 53 minutes it was 2-0 for Freiburg through Roland Salle, not even an unjustified result at the time.
With Yannick Keitel’s own goal, Borussia Dortmund did something, but even after replacing Malin in the 79th minute, BVB could not avoid defeat. After the 5-2 win over Eintracht Frankfurt, today followed the first loss of the season for Borussia Dortmund.
Mark van Bommel and Voet Wijhorst started last week with a tough 1-0 victory over ten men doctoral students at FL Bochum. After the first away game of the season against Hertha BSC, where Javiero Delrosson was in the starting line-up, three more points were added. It became 1-2 in Berlin. Dodi Lukbakio took the penalty 1-0 with a penalty an hour later, after which Riddle Baku seemed to have saved the point for Van Bommel and his buddies fifteen minutes before time. At the last stage, Van Bommel was still throwing a big party. Lucas Nemecha, Anderlecht’s striker last season, took care of the 1-2 final result. With these three points, Wolfsburg is now the leader of the Bundesliga after two rounds. A great boost for Van Bommel after his side were knocked out of the cup due to a substitution error.
Jean-Paul Boetius and Jeremiah Saint-Just came on as substitutes for FS Mainz 05’s away match against VFL Bochum, but were unable to prevent the 2-0 defeat. Justin Hogma left a point in the Greater Fürth match at home against Armenia Bielefeld (1-1) and Eintracht Frankfurt drew 0-0 at home against FC Augsburg, as Geoffrey Guilio missed due to injury.
Later the same day, Mitchell Packer and Jeremy Frimpong made ground beef in Borussia Mönchengladbach. Dutch defenders Dale Sinkgraven kept the bench and Becker had a big share of the score 1-0. His shot ended on the post, but the ball then thankfully went through goalkeeper Jan Sommer. Bakker did not score the goal, but Bayer Leverkusen led 1-0.
Three more goals were added in the remainder of the match. Patrick Shaik scored 2-0 after eight minutes, and Moussa Diaby and Nadim Amiri also contributed in the second half. Bayer Leverkusen won at least 4-0.
Leverkusen pass Monchengladbach easily
Bayer Leverkusen scored an easy victory over Borussia Monchengladbach later in the evening. The home team won 4-0. Gladbach goalkeeper Jan Sommer, who starred at Euro 2020 for Switzerland and also in last week’s 1-1 draw with Bayern, was unlucky after just 3 minutes of Mitchell Packer’s shot across the post and onto his leg. . Patrick Sheek scored the second goal for the host team after 8 minutes after a good preparatory work for Moussa Diaby.
Markus Thuram and Stefan Liner were injured in the first half for Gladbach, who could have returned to the match. Lars Stendel saw a penalty kick saved by Leverkusen goalkeeper Lukas Hradecky.
In the second half, Diaby scored 3-0 after a Becker pass and Nadim Amiri put the final score on the board shortly before the end. Leverkusen came with 4 points from two games due to the win, and Gladbach stayed on one point.
