Malen makes the first goal since July
Malen finally scored again for Dortmund later in the day. In the Bundesliga game, the attacker made it 2-0 after half an hour. After good preparatory work by Marco Reus and Julian Brandt, the ball ended up at the feet of Malen via Karim Adeyemi, who shot in at the far post.
Malen’s last goal dated from July 2022. The 24-year-old attacker was injured in August and was out for a few weeks. Malen was no longer sure of a starting place after his injury. On Sunday, the attacker was allowed to start again in the Bundesliga.
Dortmund’s other goals came from Adeyemi, Reus and Brandt. Via Lucas Tousart, Hertha did something in return, but this was not enough. Single international Jean-Paul Boëtius came within the lines at Hertha after 68 minutes.
Dortmund climbs to second place in the Bundesliga after the convincing victory. Edin Terzic’s team has the same number of points as leader Bayern Munich and number three Union Berlin.
