Borussia Dortmund produced a magnificent comeback in their Europa League qualifier on Thursday night, coming from 3-0 down to eventually edge Odds BK 4-3 in Norway.
Playing against a full-strength Dortmund side, the hosts incredibly found themselves three goals to the good after just 22 minutes, courtesy of goals from Jone Samuelsen (2 mins), Fredrik Nordkvelle (19 mins) and Espen Ruud (22 mins) with a cracking free-kick…
The Norwegians were by far the better side in the first period with Thomas Tuchel’s side dreadfully sloppy at the back.
But on 34 minutes, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored from close-range to get the Bundesliga giants back into the game.
After the break, the tide turned, with former United schemer Shinji Kagawa and another from Aubameyang putting the visitors level.
Then, with just six minutes of normal time left to play, the comeback was complete, courtesy of a Henrikh Mkhitaryan header. What a game and what a comeback!
After game, a knackered Dortmund side thanked their (as usual) incredible fans…
