Erling Haaland and Jadon Sancho fire Dortmund to fifth DFB Pokal crown

Jadon Sancho and Erling Haaland secure  Borussia Dortmund fifth DFB Pokal crown by scoring in a last triumph over RB Leipzig.

Dortmund ran out 4-1 victors at the Olympiastadion to win the prize interestingly since 2017.

Sancho net twice to supplement Haaland’s strike in the first half to give Dortmund a comfortable 3-0 lead, and the Norwegian wrapped up the win late on to deliver Dani Olmo’s second-half strike as a mere consolation goal for Leipzig.

Sancho is now the first English player to score a brace in the DFB Pokal and the youngest of any nationality to achieve the feat at the age of 21 years and 49 days.

The winger’s latest double takes his tally for the season to 15 goals from 35 matches, and he also has 19 assists to his name.

Dortmund now turn their attention to the final two Bundesliga rounds of the 2020-21 campaign as they seek to secure a top-four finish.

Edin Terzic’s side will qualify for the Champions League if they beat Mainz on Sunday and secure all three points against Bayer Leverkusen six days later.
