Favre pays heavy price for defeat

Lucien Favre was sacked as Borussia Dortmund manager following their 5-1 defeat at home to promoted side Stuttgart in the Bundesliga.

After a run of three games without a win and a slump that has seen them fall to fifth, the Dortmund board sacked the Swiss coach on Sunday and announced Favre’s former assistant Edin Terzic will take charge until the end of the season.


The match

Stuttgart scored three goals in 10 second half minutes to embarrass Dortmund and ultimately end Favre’s reign.

The visitors took the lead after 26 minutes from the penalty spot when Silas Wamangituka Fundu sent Roma Burki the wrong way after Emre Can brought down Mateo Klimowicz.

Dortmund were missing Erling Haaland up top but 18-year-old Giovanni Reyna equalised with a sublime chip six minutes before half-time to bring the hosts level after a pinpoint pass by Raphael Guerreiro.

Stuttgart went ahead for the second time in the 53rd minute when Wamangituka Fundu slotted in from close range after Orel Mangala breezed past a couple of defenders and set him up.

It was his seventh league goal of the season and his second successive brace, after he scored twice last week in the 2-1 win against Werder Bremen.

Philipp Foerster made it three on the hour mark when he was left unmarked in the box after being picked out by Borna Sosa.

Then three minutes later it was 4-1. Jude Bellingham gave the ball away sloppily and Tanguy Coulibaly punished him by curling his shot into the far corner.

Nicolas Gonzalez added a fifth in stoppage time, racing through on goal after another Dortmund mistake in possession.


Stats

Stuttgart have the best away record in the division with 14 points from six games.

Dortmund have now lost six of their eight games at home without fans. They had lost one in 32 games at home under Favre with fans in the stands.
