UCL: Dortmund beat Copenhagen in convincing display

BVB began the Champions League group stage with a 3-0 win over FC Copenhagen at the Signal Iduna Park.

Copenhagen were off and running from the opening whistle, nearly scoring within the first 25 seconds. Dortmund’s first chance came nine minutes in, but Anthony Modeste could not make a proper connection from Julian Brandt’s cross.

BVB dominated possession, but struggled finding a way through on goal. Thorgan Hazard picked up a knock and was replaced by Gio Reyna in the 22nd minute. As the first half wore on, Dortmund began to look more threatening on the offensive end. They pushed further and further up the pitch and finally their captain delivered in the 35th minute.

With excellent footwork, Marco Reus slipped through Copenhagen’s back line and finished off Brandt’s pass, which was all started by the run of Niklas Sule.

Dortmund doubled their advantage in the 42nd minute when Raphael Guerreiro scored after his give-and-go with Gio Reyna.
