Here are the xG scores from Koln 1-3 Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga last night. Koln were playing their first home top flight game after promotion, and they took the game to BVB, who needed a late rescue act from Jadon Sancho and co. to win in front of a 50,000 strong crowd.
Full xG scores Koln (0.95) vs Dortmund (2.09)
Individual xG scores of goals: Drexler (Koln 0.47), Sancho (BVB 0.03), Hakimi (BVB 0.59) and Alcacer (BVB 0.62).
Jadon Sancho recently inked a new BVB deal that would take his salary to 190,000 pounds a week, and goals like this one (probability of 0.03, or 3 times per 100 shots), tell us why.

The game swung BVB’s way when Hakimi and Brandt were introduced off the bench. Koln had a very good first half, with Jhon Cordoba excelling upfront. It wasn’t as straightforward as the margin suggested- BVB’s third was scored when Koln poured men forward in search of an equaliser that saw them exposed at the back.
