Borussia Dortmund upped the ante after the break by bringing on some top-quality substitutes and deservedly won, having registered more shots in the first (5-4) and second halves (10-4). BVB played more passes, won the majority of the challenges (57%) and had the lion's share of possession too (55%). Here are the match facts.
Nine points, four games: Borussia Dortmund picked up their first away points of the Bundesliga season and now have nine points from four games – exactly as many as they had at the same stage last term.
Provider: Erling Haaland doesn't only score goals: the striker has also assisted the last two BVB goals (the fourth against Freiburg for Felix Passlack and the opener for Marco Reus today).
Super sub: Marco Reus is a real threat from the bench too. His 128th Bundesliga goal was the first he has scored as a substitute since a 3-0 win in Hanover in March 2014.
Evergreen: Lukasz Piszczek, who unfortunately had to go off injured early on, clocked his first Bundesliga minutes of 2020/21. The Pole has now played in 14 consecutive Bundesliga seasons!
Fresh legs: Mo Dahoud, Julian Brandt and Felix Passlack started for the first time in this Bundesliga campaign. Passlack started a Bundesliga match for the first time in three years (the last time was a 3-2 win in Mainz on 20 September 2017 while on loan at Hoffenheim).
