Although the initial phase belonged to Dortmund, the goals were initially made by Eintracht from Frankfurt. Frankfurt was able to cheer for the first time in the 15th minute of the game when Rafael Borré brought the home side into the lead. Filip Kostic curled a free kick from 25 meters on the penalty spot. Reus wanted to clarify first, but he did not hit the ball Borré lurked behind it and sank the ball in the Dortmund goal.
After 24 minutes, the Glasner team increased to 2-0. Rafael Borré was there again and extended the lead after he skilfully hit the far corner from the turn. Shortly before the break, Hummels headed into the left corner from a corner. Trapp is strong, however, Malen could not use the ricochet and failed from a very short distance on the pole.
Everything seemed to be going well for Dortmund. However, as the second half continued, the pressure from Dortmund increased. Martin Hinteregger mostly had BVB star Erling Haaland under control, but a mistake by the Carinthian resulted in the first goal from black and yellow by Thorgan Hazard (71st). A header from Jude Bellingham (87th) and a flick from Mahmoud Dahoud (89th) finally turned the game around. In the end, Dortmund won 3-2.
