The first goal of the match came just seven minutes into the game. After a corner kick, centre-forward Fullkrug stood alone and scored a header near the small area. Goalkeeper Ronnow performed a miracle, but on the rebound the ball fell into the hands of a German player who managed to push it into the back of the goal.
However, Union Berlin’s equalizing goal came quickly. After the corner kick, Gosens broke free and headed toward the goal, quickly scoring the equalizer. The turning goal came in the 39th minute, when defender Bonucci earned a penalty.
However, Borussia Dortmund did not give up and returned from the suspension with all their might. The home team quickly tied the score in less than five minutes. Schlotterbeck took the lead and took some risks to make the shot. The defender fired a beautiful shot into the corner of goalkeeper Ronou to make it 2-2.

26 minutes into the second half, Borussia Dortmund tied the score. A low cross into the area saw Ronau spread the ball.
