Borussia Dortmund fight from three goals down to rescue draw


Marco Reus scored a stoppage-time equaliser to rescue a 3-3 draw for Borussia Dortmund against struggling Paderborn on Friday, having been 3-0 behind at half-time, but they still suffered a dent to their Bundesliga title hopes.

The visitors played a dream first half, with Streli Mamba scoring twice and Gerrit Holtman also on target as they outpaced the hosts and hit them on the break to leave Dortmund shell-shocked and the home fans jeering the team off at half-time.

Jadon Sancho pulled one back two minutes after the restart as Dortmund shot out of the blocks to set a blistering pace but despite their total dominance and a bagful of chances, they did not score again until Axel Witsel headed home a second in the 84th minute.

Reus rescued a point for Dortmund deep in added time to move them up to fifth on 20 points, five behind leaders Borussia Monchengladbach, who travel to Union Berlin on Saturday when Bayern Munich visit lowly Fortuna Duesseldorf.
