Dortmund Win at U19 Leaders Leverkusen


An early two-goal salvo from Ilker Aydin and Benjamin Bella put BVB’s youngsters on the way to a win over U19 Group 3 leaders Bayer Leverkusen this afternoon, closing the gap to five points between the top two sides in the group. Aydin headed home a Karl-Heinz Horn cross inside ten minutes, and within sixty seconds of the restart, Bella had doubled the lead with a thunderous drive after being played in by Aydin.

Mirza Bihorac scored a late consolation for the hosts who dominated largely throughout the second-half, but were undone by the early strikes. Dortmund move up to second after Aachen dropped points in a 2-2 draw with Wuppertal.
