Dortmund star, Erling Haaland lightened up the Bundesliga over the weekend as he inspired Borussia Dortmund to a 5-2 win against Hertha Berlin.
The recently chosen golden boy winner gave an emphatic reminder of why he deserved the accolade as he scored four times in the 47th, 49th, 62nd and 79th minute to help Borussia Dortmund secure an essential win.
The win put Borussia Dortmund just a point behind Bayern Munich who drew against Werder Bremen in the 8th week of the 2020/2021 Bundesliga season.
Werder Bremen took the lead in the 45th courtesy a Maximilian Eggestein goal before Kingsley Coman equalized for the Bavarians in the 62nd minute.
The draw also means that Bayern’s winning run has now come to an end after winning four consecutive games in the Bundesliga season.
There were wins as well for Bayer Leverkusen who defeated Arminia Bielefeld by 2-1 and VfL Wolfsburg who defeated struggling Schalke 04 by 2-0.
