Mario Gotze was the one replacing the captain at the 27th mark. The first goal of the game came shortly after the break as Thorgan Hazard collected Achraf Hakimi’s pass before burying beyond shot-stopper Pavao Pervan.

It was the perfect gift that Dortmund could have given to their coach, Lucien Favre who celebrated his birthday on the matchday. Favre’s decision of playing Dahoud with Weigl in the midfield worked out well. Dahoud showed that his commitment and forward-thinking was exactly what was missing in the last few weeks. His directness certainly caused Wolfsburg a few problems and he also came close to scoring in the second half.
