Borussia Dortmund won 6-1 FC Koln: Jude Bellingham player ratings

Borussia Dortmund put in one of the most dominant performances of the season to date, in a 6-1 win against FC Köln.

Borussia Dortmund made a strong statement of intent in their Bundesliga title race as they picked up a stunning 6-1 win against FC Köln on Saturday night. Edin Terzic’s side played excellent football throughout the 90 minutes and were rewarded with the biggest win of the season to date.

Raphael Guerreiro opened the scoring for Borussia Dortmund, before setting up Sebastien Haller for the second goal. Goals from Marco Reus and Donyell Malen helped BVB take a 4-1 lead after the break. Haller and Reus then scored again in the second half and sealed a superior victory for the black and yellow.

Here are our ratings for the Borussia Dortmund players after their 6-1 win against 1. FC Köln.

Alexander Meyer (5/10)

Meyer owed it to the post in the 20th minute when he missed a routine save. He will also feel that he should have prevented Selke from making it 4-1 for Cologne at the end of the first half. He made some decent saves to make up for those errors on both sides of the half

Marius Wolf (7/10)

Wolf again showed solid play at right-back as he celebrated his first call-up for Germany. The 27-year-old made dangerous forward runs and connected very well with his teammates. He also defended with great aplomb and did the job that was asked of him very well.

Niklas Sule (6/10)

Süle defended well most of the time and was also involved in setting up some of Borussia Dortmund’s encouraging attacks. His passing game was strong and his tackling precise as he made sure Cologne didn’t cause too much trouble for the BVB goal.

Nico Schlotterbeck (6/10)

Schlotterbeck played much more calmly and moved in front of the Cologne goal. But as the game went on, he got better and led the defense very well in the second half.

Julian Ryerson (6/10)

Ryerson has a quiet evening ahead of him, with BVB preferring to attack more often from Marius Wolf’s wing. He was solid in defense for the most part and handled well most things Köln threw at him.

Mahmud Dahoud (7/10)

Dahoud returned to the starting eleven and showed Borussia Dortmund what they were missing by putting in a strong performance in defensive midfield. The 27-year-old played with a lot of energy and recovered the ball for his team several times. He also set the tone by distributing the ball very well and hitting the bar for BVB’s fifth goal.

Jude Bellingham (7/10)

Bellingham has looked much more comfortable than in recent weeks. He played a key role in two of Borussia Dortmund’s four first-half goals and helped make things happen in midfield throughout the match. He was a bit unlucky not to finish the match with a goal or an assist. But his performance will still give him a lot of confidence. Raphael Guerreiro (9/10)

Guerreiro once again showed he was ready to play a crucial role for Borussia Dortmund in the title race with a superb performance in the middle of the park. The Portugal international opened the scoring and netted two more goals as he again demanded a contract extension at BVB.

Marco Reus (8/10)

Reus marked his return to action with a brace to move into second place on Borussia Dortmund’s all-time top scorers list. In particular, the BVB captain’s finish on his first goal was brilliant and showed he remains more than capable of making a lasting difference in the Bundesliga.

Donyell painting (8/10)

Malen did very well to score Guerreiro’s first goal and then he hit the back of the net late in the first half. He then continued to wreak havoc on the Cologne defenders, assisting Reus’ second goal. This was by far one of the Dutchman’s best performances in a BVB jersey.

Sebastian Haller (8/10)

Haller ended his goal drought in emphatic fashion by netting a crucial brace for his side. He seemed much sharper and was heavily involved in the team’s offensive play. And goals from him will give him some much needed confidence as he seems to be finding his way into the BVB shirt after so many months on the sidelines. Borussia Dortmund have had some great players play for the team over the years. Westfalenstadion has had some incredible moments in the club’s 109-year history.

The club has won eight German championships, four DFB-Pokals, five DFL Supercups, the UEFA Champions League, the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup and the Intercontinental Cup. Dortmund were the first team to win a European competition in 1966 when they lifted the Cup Winners’ Cup.

The 90s were arguably the best years in the club’s history. Under manager Ottmar Hitzfield, the club won both the Bundesliga and DFL Supercup in 1995 and 1996. They also won the UEFA Champions League in 1997, beating star-studded Juventus in the final. They followed that up with a win in the Intercontinental Cup in Japan.

In the 2000s the club won a third Bundesliga title before Jurgen Klopp arrived and won two more league titles with Der BVB.

In all these eras the players have become legends with that famous yellow and black shirt. So let’s take a look at some of the best players to ever play for Borussia Dortmund.
