The newcomer prevailed in Group D at home against Shakhtar Donetsk 2-0, goals scored by Adama Traore (16th) and Momo Yansane (62nd). Dortmund also started the new season of the “premier class” successfully – BVB won 2-1 in Pool C against Besiktas Istanbul.
Jude Bellingham brought the guests in the lead in the 20th minute and prepared the Dortmund second goal by Erling Haaland just before the break. The ex-Salzburg goalgetter has now scored 66 times in 66 competition games for the Germans and holds 21 goals in 17 Champions League games. The connecting gate for Besiktas by Francisco Montero (94th) came too late.
