Werder Bremen 0-2 Borussia Dortmund: Erling Haaland scores again

Erling Braut Haaland scored his 12th goal in eight games as Borussia Dortmund beat Werder Bremen to remain in touch in the Bundesliga title race.

Haaland, 19, fired in from Achraf Hakimi's cut-back after 66 minutes to put the game beyond struggling Werder.

Dan-Axel Zagadou had converted from Jadon Sancho's 52nd-minute corner to open the scoring at the Weserstadion.

Dortmund are four points behind leaders Bayern Munich, who scored late to beat bottom side Paderborn on Friday.

They sit third after RB Leipzig thrashed Schalke 5-0 later on Saturday to move to within one point of Bayern.

Haaland, who signed from Red Bull Salzburg in December, scored twice against Paris St-Germain on Tuesday as Dortmund recorded a 2-1 first-leg victory against the French champions.

Saturday's Bundesliga strike takes the Norway striker's tally for the season to 40 goals in 30 appearances.
