After witnessing his side produce a dramatic fightback to defeat Eintracht Frankfurt 3-2 last time out, Borussia Dortmund coach Marco Rose opted for unchanged side for the first time this season. Haaland had a hand in all three goals against the Eagles and the Norwegian sensation looked just as electric in the early stages here when flashing a teasing centre from the right into the danger zone that Marco Reus and Jude Bellingham just failed to connect with. Christian Streich’s Freiburg had boasted an away record second only to Bayern Munich’s this term, but they were second-best throughout the opening half at Signal Iduna Park and found themselves behind to a couple of identical set-piece goals prior to the half-hour mark, Julian Brandt twice providing the corners for Meunier to head in. With Borussia Dortmund  purring, Haaland added another before the break after Bellingham snatched possession and calmly played in his teammate.

Haaland now has four goals in five meetings with SC Freiburg, and 15 in total in this season’s Bundesliga.

Changes prior to the restart finally saw Freiburg begin to show flashes of their phenomenal first half of the season. Substitutes Kevin Schade and Ermedin Demirovic brought some much-needed energy to the visitors’ attack, the latter pulling a goal back with a close-range finish after goalkeeper Gregor Kobel could only parry Roland Sallai’s shot. Lucas Höler should have done more with Christian Günter’s dangerous free-kick as Freiburg’s mini-revival continued. Spurred back into action, however, the Black-and-Yellows soon swung proceedings back their way, and they were out of sight when Haaland swept home a fine Dahoud assist, with the midfielder adding another touch of magic with a tasty finish of his own before the end.

Dortmund have never lost at home to Freiburg in the Bundesliga (W11, D1).

Borussia Dortmund have not lost any of their last 31 home games on a Friday night. There have been 23 BVB wins in that time! The last defeat came exactly 18 years ago.

Another achievements for Christian Streich as he took charge of his 375th competitive game as SC Freiburg head coach. In Europe’s top 10 leagues, only Atletico Madrid’s Diego Simeone has overseen more matches at one club.

SC Frieburg coach Christian Streich said ,” “We played a very bad first half, but the second was better. Dortmund was good, we weren’t good.”

After the Borussia Dortmund coach Marco Rose said “Mo Dahoud got his reward with a goal at the end. He played a very good game. We did a lot of things right and well today. Maybe we didn’t quite have enough shots to show for our dominance. That said, we won the ball back many times, were good in our positional play and scored two goals from set-pieces. That’s also part of football. The first half was already top. We then reasserted our dominance with the goal that made it 4-1 and played a great game to the end. Off the ball, we kept the centre of midfield tight and closed down the spaces. It was very good today. Before the winter break, there was talk of two bad performances and the Bundesliga becoming boring. Now we’re within three points. We want to stay in touch at the top, but have been too inconsistent in some games.”
