WATCH: MOUKOKO: "LET'S SEE WHERE THIS JOURNEY GOES"

camera-photo

COMFORTABLE WIN

The referee blows his whistle and Dortmund gladly pocket three more points, deepening Bochum’s woes near the foot of the table. Indeed, they could even be bottom by the end of the day if Schalke don’t lose against Bremen. But this match was all about Moukoko, whose two brilliant goals underlined his astonishing quality at the ripe old age of 17.

TOP QUALITY FINISHING

information
xGoals
The xGoals value of a club is calculated from the sum of all goal probabilities (goals and shots on goal) of that team. During a match, it’s easy to see whether the club is performing better than expected (goals > xGoals) - or maybe even higher (xGoals > goals).
By rights, we shouldn't even have seen one goal yet in this game. Instead, we've had three!

MOUKOKO!

The forward looks certain to get his hat-trick as he causes mischief inside the box, but shoots wide under pressure from two defenders.

JUST WIDE!

Riemann is rooted to the spot as Brandt directs his free-kick towards the near post. He gets it over the wall but it whistles just wide of the target.

DANGEROUS LOCATION

Gamboa is booked for bringing down Bellingham just outside the Bochum area. It's a prime position for a Brandt free-kick...

JAW-DROPPING GOAL FROM MOUKOKO

Sensational stuff from the 17-year-old! Riemann is caught in no-mans-land following Schlotterbeck's long punt forward and Moukoko, spying him off his line, curls a sublie lob over the Bochum goalkeeper and into the net!

PENALTY DECISION OVERTURNED

Reyna scampers into the box and jinks inside Soares. He's too quick for the defender, who chops him down. The referee points to the spot straight away but reverses his decision after consulting his pitch-side monitor.

BELLINGHAM A WHISKER AWAY!

A lovely back-heel from Brandt releases Reyna into space down the right. He gets to the byline and drills the ball across the face of goal, looking for Bellingham. The English youngster throws himself at it but just can't quite reach it!

MAGIC MOUKOKO

He's the only 17-year-old ever to have reached 10 Bundesliga goals. His strike earlier was also the first time he has found the net in the first half. With five league goals in 2022/23, he's Dortmund's top scorer this season.

GOAL DISALLOWED

What a shame for Bochum as this was a lovely finish from Hofmann, who brilliantly brought down a diagonal pass from the left before holding off Schlotterbeck's challenge and lobbing the ball over Kobel. He was offside when the pass was played though, so it won't count.

GIO SPOT ON

Reyna scored his first ever Bundesliga penalty, taking his overall tally to eight. That means he has surpassed his father Claudio's total; Reyna senior struck seven times in the 1990s for Wolfsburg.

GOALS EXPECTED

HEAD-TO-HEAD

This is the 63rd Bundesliga meeting between these teams - and Dortnund have the upper hand overall with 24 wins (39%) to Bochum's 17 (27%). On home turf Dortmund have triumphed 58% of the time (18 of 31), even if Bochum did pull off an astonishing 4-3 win on their last visit here in April earlier this year.

100 CLUB

It's a milestone occasion for Bochum right-back Gamboa as he makes his 100th competitive appearance for the club today.

REUS RETURNS!!!

The Dortmund captain is back in the squad for the first time in three weeks following injury. He only played 45 minutes against Union Berlin on 16 October after struggling to recover from an ankle complaint. He'll be keen for some minutes here though - not least so that he can prove to Germany head coach Hansi Flick that he's fit enough to go to the World Cup with Germany.

FORM

Bochum enjoyed a mini revival in October, with surprise league victories over Eintracht Frankfurt and leaders Union Berlin, as well as advancing to the last 16 of the DFB Cup, but last week's 4-0 humbling at Wolfsburg will have brought them crashing down to earth again. As such, Bochum sit 17th in the table in just 17 points with the leakiest defence in the division (32 conceded). Dortmund have had a couple of wobbles of their own but are now unbeaten in five in all competitions, including victories in their last two Bundesliga outings.
