3-2 away win in Dortmund

Aubameyangs opener (4') is cancelled out by Sabitzer (10'). Poulsen (25') and Augustin (49.) put RBL in front, before Aubameyang pulls one back (64') | Sokratis (48') and Ilsanker (56') both see red | 3,000 RBL fans in Dortmund | RBL up to third.

 An incredible match  for all 80,100 fans packed into the Signal-Iduna Park in Dortmund. Two high-pressing, offesive teams. Two penatlies. Two red cards. Five goals - three of which ensured all the points come back to Leipzig! 

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyan scored the early goal for the hosts, but Marcel Sabitzer pulled one back with a header six minutes later, before a tap-in from Yussuf Poulsen completed the turnaround in the 25th minute. 

Jean-Kévin Augustin extended the lead from the penalty spot soon after the restart, as BVB's Sokratis was dismissed for a professional foul. Stefan Ilsanker soon followed the Dortmund man after picking up two yellows inside as many minutes, before Aubameyang then pulled one back from the penalty spot. 

The final 30 minutes saw the hosts throw caution to the wind as they looked to fin an equaliser, but Die Roten Bullen held on brilliantly to inflict a first home defeat on Borussia Dortmund in 41 matches.
