Borussia Dortmund vs Bayer Leverkusen – Goals

In an entertaining first half, Kevin Volland scored a double, while Mats Hummels and Emre Can scored from Dortmund side to keep the score level at 2-2.

Mats Hummels headed home from Jadon Sancho’s superb corner. It was the England forward’s 14th Bundesliga assist of the campaign to level the score 1-1.

Emre Can’s goal was spectacular, as his curling effort from 30 yards – went into top right-side corner. It was his first Bundesliga goal since May 2014.

Another effort from Sancho, saw VAR intervention and subsequently the goal was ruled out by the video assistant referee for a foul in the build-up.

Guerreiro slotted home from a counter-attack, after Kai Havertz had struck the post at the other end.

Raphael Guerreiro gave Dortmund the lead on 64 minutes only for the hosts to fight back in the closing stages. Super-sub Leon Bailey and Lars Bender scored in successive minutes to ensure Bayer victory .

Haaland finished goal-less

The game set off at a frenetic pace and Erling Braut Haaland, who was making his first Bundesliga start for Dortmund, had already narrowly missed two chances.

The away side then took control of the match after their third goal, consolidating possession and limiting their hosts to few chances, only for the game to burst into an explosive finale.

The victory for Peter Bosz’s side means they rise to fifth while Dortmund remain third – three points behind leaders Bayern Munich, who face second-placed RB Leipzig on Sunday.
