Union continued their five-week run at the top of the table and handed Dortmund their fourth loss of the season thanks to two goals in the first half from Janik Haberer.

Kobel gave Union the opening goal on a silver platter, giving the visitors a terrible start.

Kobel fell on the grass in his own penalty area as he rose to receive a straightforward back pass from Raphael Guerreiro, allowing Haberer to tap the ball into the open goal.

Shortly after, Haberer doubled the advantage by slamming the ball into the bottom corner after Union had danced past Dortmund’s sluggish back line.
