Bundesliga 2018/19 Highlights: Dortmund continues to dominate Bundesliga with their victory against Stuttgart.
Borussia Dortmund went into the game knowing that it will be an easy encounter against the struggling Stuttgart. However, if they needed to bag three points, they had to get off the start early in the game. As they would have discussed pre-game, BVB got off to a flyer, thanks to their teenage sensation Jadon Sancho.
Jadon Sancho is on the scoresheet for Dortmund in the Bundesliga again…

The young English winger has not put a foot down in the season, with some spectacular display of football. Sancho has been a key person in the Dortmund setup, either providing assists or scoring goals as he did in the game against Stuttgart. Going down 1 – 0 in the third minute never helps an opposition against BVB. Since then it was a landslide for the hosts, as Marco Reus doubled the lead in the 23rd minute of the encounter. A sumptuous finish from the German international took the away side reeling away from the hosts. BVB continued to press and pass the ball around while tiring the Stuttgart back-line.

Stuttgart, on the other hand, had chances in between the Dortmund attacks to score a goal of their own. However, thanks to the combination of some good defence, and a rather sloppy attack Stuttgart could not convert their chances into goals.
Dortmund struck on the break as their in-form striker Paco Alcacer scored the third goal for the away side. The man-on-loan and the man-in-form Alcacer chipped the goalkeeper in a sublime fashion to send Stuttgart goalkeeper packing.
In just 25 minutes of the encounter, the match seemed to be done and dusted as Dortmund sniffed and sealed the game. In the second half, Stuttgart had two opportunities in quick succession which went begging, thanks to the poor finish after a rebounding corner.
Maximilian Philipp added to the scoreline, as Dortmund cracked open the defence for the fourth time in the day, leaving the new boss Markus Weinzierl a can of worries.
