It’s NOT over yet! Borussia Dortmund keep maximum pressure on Bayern Munich to stay in Bundesliga title hunt with rampant 5-2 win over Borussia Moenchengladbach – with England star Jude Bellingham among scorers
- Dortmund scored four goals in 32 minutes in the first half of a comfortable win
- The side are on 67 points with two games to go, one point off the top of the table
- Jude Bellingham ‘has accepted all details of his Real Madrid contract offer’
Borussia Dortmund scored four goals in a dazzling 32-minute first-half spell to ease past Borussia Moenchengladbach 5-2 on Saturday and stay in the title hunt with two matches left in the Bundesliga season.
Dortmund are on 67 points in second place, one behind leaders Bayern Munich, 6-0 winners over Schalke 04 earlier on Saturday. Dortmund travel to Augsburg next weekend while Bayern face Champions League hopefuls RB Leipzig.
The hosts shot out of the blocks and went in front after five minutes when Donyell Malen nodded in from close range after Sebastien Haller’s shot from the edge of the box got deflected.
Jude Bellingham slotted in a penalty in the 18th minute before Haller’s spectacular backheel flick made it 3-0 just two minutes later.
Bellingham appears set to join Real Madrid in the summer, but the England man is full focused on Dortmund’s title charge for the rest of the season.
