Giovanni Reyna's equaliser at 1-1 was the turning point in the game. From then on, BVB dominated the shot count until the break (7-0) and turned a 1-0 deficit into a 3-1 lead. In total, their dominance of possession (64%) and the shot count (19-10) left no doubt the victory was deserved. The match facts.
Offensively strong: Mats Hummels scored his fifth goal of the season, making him the league's most dangerous defender. At the same time, he equalled his best for a campaign. The last time he scored so often was 10 years ago – as a BVB player in 2020/11.
Brace: Erling Haaland scored at least two goals for the ninth time this season – no other player has managed that in BVB's long history. In total, he has now scored more than one goal in 13 of his 36 Bundesliga matches – more than one third of his appearances. That's a crazy ratio. The penalty to make it 2-1 was Haaland's 50th competitive goal for BVB – in his 54th game.
Long-range rocket: Giovanni Reyna scored his fourth Bundesliga goal (all this season) and netted his first goal from long range.
Hard-running: At 11.6 kilometres, Jude Bellingham covered by far the most ground of any BVB player.
Unbeaten streak: Borussia Dortmund are now unbeaten in seven Bundesliga meetings with Werder Bremen (four wins, three draws).
Early goals glut: For the first time this season, the Black & Yellows scored three goals in the first half.
