The team from the capital were annihilated by the boy wonder called Erling Haaland. The Norwegian scored a memorable second half hat trick to put Dortmund within 1 point of log leaders Bayern who were held at the Allianz Arena by Werder Bremen.
Mattheus Cunha scored a contender for goal of the season with a cannon from outside the box to give Hertha the lead. The first of Dortmund’s goals was scored by Haaland with good box awareness to latch onto a Marco Reus pass just after the break. For his second, he capitalized on a poorly constructed offside trap to give Dortmund the lead 2 minutes later. Hertha Berlin shot themselves in the foot for Haaland’s hat trick goal. A poor excuse of a back pass turned out to be the perfect pass for Haaland. He rounded the goal keeper Schwolow to pass the ball into the net on 62 minutes. Dortmund’s Portuguese left back Guerrero was first to a loose ball in the 18 yard box on 70 minutes for 4-1 Dortmund.
A tidy a penalty as you will ever see from Cunha for his brace made it 4-2 on 79 minutes. Right from the restart of play afterwards, Haaland scored his 4th goal with the Hertha defence in sixes. This hat trick will go down in the history books as one of the best in football. Memorable day for the youngster.
