Borussia Dortmund used a free kick routine straight from the training ground yesterday, the routine worked perfectly and Paco Alcacer was left free to score Dortmund’s opener.
The routine worked wonders for Lucien Favre’s men, Marco Reus and Raphael Guerreiro duped the Werder Bremen defence when Reus sent the full-back on a fake run only for the Portuguese star to run back up and launch the free kick into Alcacer’s path.
The Bremen defence were left bamboozled and Alcacer was left free to run towards goal and meet Guerreiro’s inch-perfect cross with a wonderful header.
Check out a video of the wonderful routine below:
This is just brilliant ?
Dortmund's opening goal vs Werder Bremen was a clever and well rehearsed free-kick routine…
You see Guerreiro and Reus discuss it, sell the fake so well, then deliver an inch-perfect cross for Paco Alcacer ?
They are a joy to watch this season ?? pic.twitter.com/ATterJZqfm
