Dortmund had been hoping for their second win in two games under Terzic, who replaced Lucien Favre who was fired on Sunday. Terzic started with a 2-1 win at Werder Bremen on Tuesday, but his team was riddled with mistakes by Urs Fischer’s organized home team.

The Union’s first big chance fell to Taiwo Awoniyi, but Mats Hummels did just enough to put it off, before a mistake from Thomas Meunier made it almost costly for the visitors.

Awoniyi was disallowed, however, with a good save from Roman Burki and Cedric Teuchert firing over the unprotected goal from the replay. Sheraldo Becker had another good chance 10 minutes later, but Burki’s shot fired weakly.

Moukoko came closer than anyone before the break when he was hit by a bullet off the post on the right, before Awoniyi broke the final stop from close range in the 57th when Grischa Promel went on a corner.

However, Moukoko equalized three minutes later with a rocket inside the left post after being played by Raphael Guerreiro.

But Dortmund’s defense then left Friedrich free to go into the winner.
