Twitter Reacts as Dortmund Go 3-0 Down (and Fight Back) Against Bundesliga’s Bottom Side

Borussia ?Dortmund hosted a Friday night thriller against bottom of the table Paderborn, fighting back from three goals down at half time to rescue a vital point.

Pressure has been rising at Signal Iduna Park following some questionable performances and poor results this season, and the weekend’s early encounter hardly helped.

Streli Mamba had inspired Paderborn to a 3-0 half-time lead and the visitors were much the better side, continually devastating Dortmund on the counter-attack.

However, fatigue set in for the visitors and the hosts fought their way back into the light courtesy of goals from Jadon Sancho, Axel Witsel and Marco Reus, completing a marvellous night of football in Germany.

Let’s take it back to the beginning.

It was a lightning-fast start from visiting side Paderborn, who deservedly grabbed the opening goal of the game after only five minutes in ?Dortmund. Streli Mamba bagged the first, converting a wonderfully-worked break from the visitors.

And soon enough, Mamba was back at it, netting his second of the evening and stunning the home fans.

Things were getting out of hand for Dortmund, who went in at half time 3-0 behind to Paderborn – oh, did anyone mention they’re bottom of the ?Bundesliga?

??The first 45 minutes couldn’t end quickly enough for Lucien Favre and his Dortmund defence – who had an absolute shocker!??

??Favre must have given his players an almighty kick up the backside during his half-time team talk, especially given how close he is to being shown the exit door.

In all fairness…it kind of worked.

English dynamo Jadon Sancho grabbed a crucial goal back for the hosts only two minutes after the restart.

Dortmund chances then came and went, with the hosts guilty of missing a couple of sitters.

But in the 84th minute, Axel Witsel’s header gave the hosts hope and spurring the sixth-placed side back in to life.

With the game on a knife’s edge, could Dortmund grab an equaliser? Yes, yes they could.

And who else but their main man ?Marco Reus.

Got your breath yet?

It was an extraordinary battle between the two sides, and above anything else, a stunning game of football.

And the weekend has only just begun.


??However, many people weren’t ready to let Dortmund manager Favre off the hook that easily…
