WHAT HAPPENED? Dortmund crushed Hertha Berlin 4-1 on Sunday, spreading out goals throughout the 90 minutes of the lopsided win.

Karim Adeyemi opened the scoring in the 27th minute before Donyell Mallen made it 2-0 just four minutes later. Hertha Berlin pulled one back through Lucas Tousart early in the second half, but finishes from Marco Reus and Julian Brandt sealed the win for Dortmund later in the second 45.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: The match was the second in a row that saw Reyna remain on the bench as the U.S. men's national team star was an unused substitute in the midweek win over Chelsea in the Champions League.

He had started the Bundesliga match against Werder Bremen last weekend, having scored in three substitute appearances leading up to that start.
