Dortmund Notch Convincing Win Over Monaco

Borussia Dortmund’s outstanding form continued with a 3-0 win over Monaco on Wednesday, as Paco Alcacer spared his personal blushes by recovering from a penalty miss to score his first Champions League goal for the club.

Jacob Bruun Larsen came on as a half-time substitute to score his third goal in as many appearances for Dortmund, who did not have it all their own way against a Monaco side fighting to regain form after a torrid few weeks.

Leonardo Jardim’s men are without a win in nine games and have nothing to show for their European efforts so far, having lost to Atletico Madrid in their opening Group A fixture.

In contrast, Dortmund are top of the Bundesliga and growing in confidence in Europe, their victory effectively clinched by Paco Alcacer’s strike after the Spaniard missed a penalty moments earlier, and Marco Reus added a third in second-half stoppage time.
