It was the third minute of the match when Thomas Meunier passed in front of the right side of the field. The Belgian crossed into the area, and the ball bounced off two of the visiting players and fell at the feet of Marco Reus. The German hit the left foot without thinking about it, which did not give Robin Zentner a chance to intervene.
At 54. Erling Haaland went to 2: 0, which used a penalty. Although Jonathan Burkardt made it 1-1 in the 87th minute, Haaland set up the extra time, using a pass from Jude Bellingham.
