After a terrible 10 game run without a win, prior to this match Burton finally got their 3rd win of the season. They followed up that result with another win! their first consecutively this season. And with the old rivals locking horns for the first time in league football since the Xbox360 days, this win was so much sweater than any this season.

The start of the first half was a bit of a Dortmund onslaught and they got rewarded with an early goal when Dembele was played in who beat the defense and slotted low to the left corner. After the goal Dortmund continued to charge at the Burton goal but shots were going high/wide and the keeper pulled off a stop or 2. Towards the end of the first half the Brewers started to find their feet, and managed to get a goal to pull it level with a few first half mins to go. On the counter, Ze Luis playing a nice through ball for Gago to chase. With the little pace he has he managed to beat the defense then finished it well with the ball going in off the post. In extra time Burton had a chance to go in the lead at the break when Long was played through on goal, but is left footed shot went well wide. In the 2nd half Dortmund had more chances to score goals then Burton, but they just couldn't find the back of the net. As the match was coming down to its last 10 mins it looked like it was gonna end as a draw... But then on the 81st min Burton worked a goal scoring chance with a chip ball for Bystrov to chase onto. He controlled the ball just outside the box, passed it sideways to Long who took one touch and finished it well into the top right corner. Dortmund tried to at least earn themselves a point in the last mins, but Burton defense stood up well and seen out the result.

 

 

Cheers Starke, unlucky mate. You really should have won that one though. All the best and catch you on the return leg.
