Stuttgart 0-2 Dortmund: Julian Brand’s two goals sent Stuttgart into defeat as fears of relegation at the club grew.
- Julian Brand’s two goals put Dortmund back on track after Leipzig’s defeat
- Stuttgart is just one point above a game-plus drop
- Dortmund also finished second behind Bayern Munich
Borussia Dortmund are back in the season with a 2-0 win over Stuttgart.
Stuttgart, a point outside the relegation zone that has played more games than Armenia in the 16th, offered little and manager Pellegrino Matazaro will be concerned in the final stages of the season.
Dortmund found themselves at the end of last week’s excellent RB Leipzig performance, but Julian Brand modified it by scoring on both sides of half time as he pulled away from Bayer Leverkusen in the third.

Brand, who did not start the game early but was presented six minutes after Jio Rena was injured, was impressed and had a good price for his two goals.
The first earlings were made by Holland and all brands had to tap into it. Initially, the flag went up for offside but VAR reversed the decision.

The German international second, in 71 minutes, had a very stylish finish.
Picking the ball to the side of D, Brand hit the ball to the left of the goalkeeper, in the process a wrong-footed Florian Mरller into the Stuttgart goal.
Dortmund are unlikely to challenge Bayern Munich for the title, but will be encouraged after surrendering at their home in Leipzig last week.
