6:24pm: FULL-TIME: Both teams had a good game and a late winner seems harsh on Dusseldorf. They had a great game and defended and fought well until the end giving Dortmund no space. They struggled to penetrate Dusseldorf’s defence but Haaland in the end got one chance and scored. My man of the match is Akanji, he’s had a good game defending for Dortmund and he assisted Haaland’s late winner.
