Haaland’s Brace Against Bremen Were His First Goals In Seven Games

Haaland ended his run of seven games without a goal by scoring a brace against Werder Bremen. He made it 2-1 in the 34th minute and confirmed his comeback in the 38th minute.

Haaland had spent seven consecutive games without scoring. A statistic that is only surprising given how accustomed we’ve become to his spectacular record in front of goal.

Against Werder Bremen, the moment to end his first big droubt came at a time when Borussia Dortmund needed it most. The home side went behind 0-1 after 15 minutes, however Reyna scored a beauty to level the score after 29 minutes.

Five minutes later, Haaland’s first goal arrived. The number 9 converted a penalty in the 34th minute, lifting the weight of his bad run off his shoulders. With this pressure gone, he waited only four minutes to secure his brace.

In the 38th minute, the Norwegian really demonstrated his killer instinct. He solidified Dortmund’s comeback with a true striker’s finish, turning home a loose ball inside the box into an empty net.

Haaland’s last goal, until this Sunday, was on 20th March, when he scored another brace against Koln. Since then, he left for international duty with Norway and returned without a goal, after games against Gibraltar, Turkey and Montenegro. Back in the Dortmund side, he failed to score against Eintracht Frankfurt, Stuttgart and the two encounters against Manchester City.
