3-3 in crazy game at BVB!

Timo Werner (47', 53') and Patrik Schick (78') scored to help the team come from behind twice | RBL are now 7 Bundesliga games unbeaten | Poor first half, formidable second

The Bulls came from 2-0 down to rescue an importnat point against Borussia Dortmund in an incredible game that finished 3-3.
 
The hosts were in control of the game from the start and created the better chances early on. After making a number of impressive saves, Péter Gulácsi was wrong footed by a Julian Weigl shot and Dortmund took the lead (23'). Julian Brandt doubled their lead shortly afterwards (34'). Nevertheless, the Bulls kept pushing and Yussuf Poulsen and Timo Werner were both unlucky to be denied by Roman Bürki just before the break (45+1'). 
 
The team took this momentum with them into the second half and Werner quickly capitalised on mistakes from Bürki and Brandt to score twice in quick succession and make it 2-2 (47', 53'). However, Dortmund struck back almost immediately through Jadon Sancho (55') to regain their lead. The Bulls kept applying the pressure and, thankfully, subsitute Patrik Schick found an equaliser (77'). The game was open and exciting right up to the final whistle but neither team could find a winner in the end.
