The first half of the match was rather dull as it went on without a goal being scored by either side. But the second half made up for all the action that the first 45 minutes was devoid of. Thorgan Hazard opened the scoring for Borussia Dortmund in the 54th minute with him calmly putting the ball into the home team’s net after Emre Can’s cross was blocked by Paderborn keeper Leopold Zingerle. Sancho went on to increase the visitors’ lead by tucking the ball into an empty net following a cross from Julian Brandt. Paderborn’s only goal came after a successful penalty shot in the 72nd minute from Uwe Hünemeier following a handball foul from midfielder Emre Can. Two minutes later, Sancho doubled his goal tally making the scoreline 1-3 in favor of the visitors with his phenomenal shot from inside the penalty area. Achraf Hakimi and Marcel Schmelzer added two more goals for their team within the 85th and 89th minutes respectively.
