Erling Haaland has to doing it again as he scored a 90th minute equaliser goal to rescue a point for Borussia Dortmund in a 2-2 draw away to FC Koln in the Bundesliga.
Looking to continue their superb run of form, Dortmund made two enforced changes to the side that beat Hertha Berlin last weekend. In came Thomas Meunier and Gio Reyna for the injured Mateu Morey and Marco Reus.
The Black and Yellow got off to the perfect start and took the lead earlier in the game, with the highly-rated forward Erling Haaland firing home the opener after just three minutes.
The 20-year-old Norwegian international got on the end of Emre Can’s long ball, drifts beyond Jorge Mere, keeping the ball away from the Spaniard before slotting home through the legs of Horn.
Köln responded well to going behind and looked more and more dangerous as the first half went on. They finally got their reward in the 35th minute when Jude Bellingham was adjudged to have handled Noah Katterbach’s shot. Ondrej Duda sent Marwin Hitz the wrong way to make it 1-1 from the spot-kick.
The Billy Goats continued to dominate the game after the break, as Borussia Dortmund looked like a shadow of the team we have seen in recent weeks. Ismail Jakobs made it 2-1 for Köln with a strong finish after Thomas Meunier failed to clear a through ball and instead passed it into the path of the Köln winger.
The Black and Yellow then began their search for an equaliser, and Erling Haaland hit the post with his glancing header from Meunier’s cross. The 20-year-old then fizzed an effort just wide from the edge of the box, as the Dortmund started to get closer and closer.
The equaliser finally arrived in the 90th minute when Erling Haaland turned home substitute Ansgar Knauff’s brilliant low cross to make it 2-2.
The goal ensured a share of the spoils, but it means that the Black and Yellow are now four points behind fourth placed Eintracht Frankfurt, who they play straight after the international break.
Bayern Munich, on the other hand, defeat Stuttgart by 4-0, in which in-form world-class striker Robert Lewandowski scored an hat-trick to retain Hans Dieter-Flick’s side’s Bundesliga lead to four-point.
Alphonso Davies was sent off in early of the game but the German champions off to the perfect start as Poland striker Robert Lewandowski opened the scoring in 18th minutes of the game.
Ex-Arsenal star Serge Gnabry doubled the host lead in 22th minutes after a sweeping move involving Thomas Mueller and Leroy Sane.
Robert Lewandowski added the third less than 60 seconds later when he rose to head home a Mueller cross from the right. The Poland striker added some gloss in the 39th with a clinical left-footed finish from inside the penalty area as he pounced on sloppy defending by Stuttgart after Sane’s jinking run down the right flank.
