The Borussia Dortmund returned from the winter break in the Bundesliga looking like he needed another to the battle to beat Wolfsburg 2-0 on Sunday.
It was until recovery time that Jadon Sancho was able to secure victory in a counterattack, shaking off the mark of Brazilian full-back Paulo Otávio before defining just when he had to beat only the goalkeeper.

That got the attention of Manchester United in a major transfer. Sancho had seven goals and eight passes for goal after 12 Bundesliga appearances last season.
Sancho also sent the pass on a corner kick on Manuel Akanji’s goal in the 66th minute, but it had been a frustrating match for Dortmund despite the return of star forward Erling Haaland after a muscle injury that kept him away. of the courts for a month.
We knew what to expect, but we also complicated the situation ourselves, “said new Dortmund manager Edin Terzić after his first home win.
The game came on a long hiatus midway through the second half for a VAR review on a possible hand from Axel Witsel. The Dortmund midfielder was unable to avoid contact with Renato Steffen’s header from close range and referee Manuel Gräfe decided not to call an infringement.
