More efficiently showed largely low Rojiblancos. Coulibaly went to impetuous in his own penalty area against Salim El Jebari El Hannouni, so referees Julian Weinberger showed the point again. Unlike Fink, Javier Curras Caballero retained the nerves and met for the lead (31.). Since the Borussians had difficulties in the closeness to create opportunities, it remained at the 0: 1 until the break.

Only five minutes later, Fink appeared free in front of Alejandro It turbe Encabo. His lifter clarified David Navarro Exposito in front of the line – the hit would not have been counted anyway, because Fink had previously been out of the way.

Dortmund’s coach Tullberg was offensive and brought, among other things, Rijkhoff, who should be the focus just before the end: after a counterattack over Fink and Rothe, the Joker grasped freestanding from eleven meters (89.). Since Atletico in the screening time, the numerous standards of BVB lost away, the Dortmund journey ended in the quarterfinals – but still it was the best performance of Borussia in this competition.
