Dortmund beats Bremen 2-1 in Bundesliga opener

Borussia Dortmund substitute Mario Goetze scored to secure a 2-1 win for the defending champion over Werder Bremen in the opening game of the 50th Bundesliga season on Friday.
It took three minutes following his introduction for the 20-year-old to score in the 81st minute, after Czech defender Theodor Gebre Selassie equalized for Bremen on his league debut in the 75th.
Marco Reus had opened the scoring in the 11th minute to repay some of the (EURO)17.5 million ($21.9 million) Dortmund paid Borussia Moenchengladbach for the German player of the year in the offseason.
Dortmund stretched its unbeaten league run to 29 games.
The game took place 49 years to the day after the first Bundesliga games were played.
Last season's runner-up, Bayern Munich, visits promoted Greuther Fuerth on Saturday.
