It was a difficult night in the Champions League for Sevilla, where Borussia Dortmund took all three points on the third matchday of the group stage against a Sevilla FC side that found themselves behind in the fifth minute of the game with the first goal from Bellingham and were unable to find an equaliser in the chances they had before the Germans struck once more to end an emphatic first-half performance. In the second half, with an early goal from En-Nesyri, Lopetegui's men persisted in pursuit of a second goal without success until the visitors' fourth came, which sealed the Dortmund win at the Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán.
A disappointing first half came and went for Sevilla, where, a poor performance despite several goalscoring chances meant that the three points were more or less secured by Dortmund as the teams went back to the changing rooms for half-time. A resounding 3-0 scoreline separated the two teams at the end of the first forty-five minutes, with Borussia Dortmund looking dangerous practically every time they reached the attacking end of the pitch, and Bono conceding three. Guerreiro opened the scoring in the fifth minute, scoring from a cross from the edge of the area, which was deflected off José Ángel and ended up at the back of the net.
En-Nesyri, who got his goal in the second half, was unlucky not to score an equalizer after Guerreiro's opener
Sevilla FC improved slightly after conceding, creating a number of dangerous chances, but without finding the net. En-Nesyri had a couple of good chances, firstly after a precise through ball from Jordán, and then with a header from Suso's cross, but neither was capable of beating Meyer, who kept his side in front during the home side's momentum. Shortly before the break, Dortmund capitalized on a dangerous period of chances to score twice in quick succession. Bellingham scored with a solo effort inside the box, and Adeyemi scored from a rebounded Moukoko shot, making the score 3-0 just before half-time, with the home side already lacking in morale after failing to secure the equaliser and the ruthless reply from the visitors.
