Dortmund Reserves’ Tenth Consecutive Win


BVB’s Reserves / Under-23s side notched up their tenth consecutive win with a comfortable 2-1 win at FC Nürnberg II this afternoon. Senior squad members Mats Hummels, Taye Taiwo, and man-of-the-match Ivan Perisic all played some part in the game after being rested in the first team’s win here yesterday.

Daniel Ginczek gave Dortmund the lead with a close range finish from Perisic’s cross after 12 minutes, before Marvin Ducksch converted a second Perisic cross to double the lead just five minutes later. Besar Halimi scored a late consolation for the hosts.

Dortmund II are next in action on 11 November with a friendly at Köln.
