Borussia Dortmund thrashed RB Leipzig 4-1 in the DFB Pokal final on Thursday.
Jadon Sancho and Erling Haaland collected braces to earn BVB their only piece of silverware amidst a difficult campaign.
Dortmund head coach, Edin Terzic said after the game, “It wasn’t our best game, but what matters in a final is winning, not just playing well. Tonight, we’ve earned the right to enjoy ourselves.
Marco Reus played a key role as he added, “These are amazing moments. I’m incredibly proud of the performance we showed today and the way that we fought our way back into the season so strongly.
Hans-Joachim Watzke (Borussia Dortmund CEO): I’m really pleased. In all fairness, it must be said that while the result is clear, the game wasn’t. Leipzig put us under a lot of pressure in the second half.
Dortmund are still in the fight for a Champions League spot for next season. They are currently fourth in the Bundesliga with only a point above Eintracht Frankfurt. Terzic’s men did not face much difficulty in bagging their first trophy since 2017. Leipzig have not beaten Dortmund in eight games now, losing 3-2 against them in Bundesliga as well last Saturday.
