UCL 2019 Slavia Prague vs Borussia Dortmund Highlights – Borussia Dortmund made their way into the Round of 16 by the skin of their teeth with a shaky performance against Slavia Prague at their home. Dortmund started the game very well and played the same line up that defeated Dusseldorf, 5 goals to nil. The first goal came, thanks to the teamwork between Reus and Sancho, as Reus laid it off for the English youngster for an easy finish. Dortmund’s defense was very clumsy the entire night as they struggled to defend the ball inside the box. A lot of credit goes to Dortmund’s no. 1 who made many vital saves.
Tomas Soucek leveled the game before the half time but the home side rescued their advantage as Julian Brandt dribbled the ball past the full-back and finished the ball in the near post of the corner. Luck was on the side of the German club as Inter lost 2-1 to Barcelona helping them seal the spot to playoffs.
