Erling Haaland struck a brace to help Borussia Dortmund get back to winning ways at Signal Iduna Park, as Marco Rose’s side clinched a 3-0 win over bottom side Greuther Furth to end their two-game wait for a victory in the Bundesliga.
After a nervy start, the hosts eventually hit their stride and thought they took the lead in the 20th minute, but Thorgan Hazard’s strike was ruled out for a narrow offside after a VAR check.
The hosts were awarded a penalty ten minutes later, as Haaland’s shot hit the hand of Maximillian Bauer in the box. A quick VAR check confirmed the decision.

The Norwegian made no mistake from the spot-kick, slotting the ball into the bottom left corner.
Dortmund supporters finally had another goal to cheer eight minutes from time as Haaland rose highest to head in Julian Brandt’s free-kick to grab his 13th league goal of the season.
Donyell Malen added Dortumund’s third in the 88th minute to seal the win with a clever bit of play.
Dortmund stay in 2nd, and Greuther remain bottom, yet to pick up a single point away from home.
