Borussia Dortmund Defeat Newcastle United To Blow Group Wide Open

dortmund-newcastle

Felix Nmecha’s goal for Borussia Dortmund opened up a huge window in the Champions League group of death with a 1-0 victory over Newcastle at St. James’ Park on Wednesday.

Callum Wilson and Fabian Schar gave Newcastle two late goals, but they still need to improve if they are to make it to the round of sixteen on their 20-year reunion with the league.

With both teams on four points after their first Group F victory, Dortmund now leads Newcastle in their head-to-head record.

With six points, Paris Saint-Germain tops the section, while AC Milan, the runners-up from the previous season, is bottom with two.

Three weeks ago, Newcastle stunned PSG 4-1 to signal their arrival back on the Champions League stage.

Unfortunately, the Magpies’ unexpectedly lackluster performance served as a sobering reality check.

In their first two matches in the most difficult group in the draw, Dortmund had failed to score.

However, of the 12 games they have played this season, their loss to PSG last month was their sole defeat.

Even though Dortmund controlled the first forty-five minutes, they still ought to have been behind when Anthony Gordon shot directly at Gregor Kobel when the Swiss goalkeeper was the only person left to beat.

Then, Alexander Isak, a former striker for Dortmund, was pulled off due to injury, dealing a serious blow to Newcastle.

Niclas Fullkrug and Donyell Malen put Nick Pope to the test, but it was a superb effort from a center-back that ultimately enabled Edin Terzic’s team to win their first game.

In first-half stoppage time, Nico Schlotterbeck stole the ball from Gordon in midfield, raced forward, and crossed for Nmecha to smash into the far corner.

In the coming days, Sandro Tonali is anticipated to get a 10-month penalty for alleged infractions of betting regulations while he was an AC Milan player.

To attempt and spark a comeback, Eddie Howe nevertheless looked to the Italian international off the bench.

With just the goalkeeper to beat, Wilson, Isak’s replacement, shot into Kobel’s knees, leaving Newcastle to lament a hugely wasted opportunity.

Wilson then witnessed a header that was deflected back off the crossbar.

In the final moments of stoppage time, Schar’s deflected shot looped over a defenseless Kobel and graciously ricocheted back off the bar for Dortmund into the path of a covering defender, bringing Howe’s team even closer.

However, the visitors held on, leaving the group in a precarious position ahead of their rematch on November 7 in Dortmund.
