No doubt many of you whippersnappers were/are out on this Friday night tripping the light fantastic, or at least having a drink or two down your local park/boozer/gastro-pub. However, over at the Westfalenstadion, Bundesliga sides Dortmund and Stuttgart were playing out a truly classic 4-4 draw.
League-leaders Dortmund opened the scoring just after the half-hour mark, courtesy of Japanese international Shinji Kagawa while Jakub Blaszczykowski made it 2-0 for the home side just after the break. However, rather than roll over and die, seventh-placed Stuttgart fought back with Bosnian striker Vedad Ibisevic netting on 71 minutes before Julian Schieber bagged a brace within two minutes to put The Swabians 3-2 ahead.
However, with just eight minutes to go, German international defender Mats Hummels levelled the scores before Ivan Perisic looked to have won the game for Dortmund on 87 minutes. But still the drama wasn’t finished – well into the second minute of injury time, Christian Gentner found the net to make it 4-4.
Check out the highlights of what was a fantastic game of football.
