In a game full of expectations before kick-off, the promise of an exciting game for the German Bundesliga this Saturday afternoon has been fulfilled. In an extremely busy match, with two comebacks, Borussia Dortmund lost to Bayer Leverkusen 4-3 away, at the Bay Arena for the 21st matchday in the domestic competition.

On 20 minutes into the game, Leverkusen’s Man of the Match, striker Kevin Volland was picked out in a good pass, entered the area and slotted home at the far post to open the scoring.

However, Leverkusen’s joy wouldn’t last. Two minutes later, Jadon Sancho’s corner met Mats Hummels, who headed home and scored. 1-1.

Borussia’s comeback came in the 33rd minute. And what a goal it was. In his first match as a starter, Turk Emre Can received a pass in the middle and tried to risk it from distance. He curled home an effort that went over Leverkusen keeper, who couldn’t reach it. 1-2 BVB.

BVB kept on dominating the game, but it seemed like their defense wasn’t as inspired as their attack. Before half-time, Volland showed up again to equalize it from a shot from close-range. 2-2.

The match kept on with the crazy pace in the second half, the. On 65 mins, Dortmund displayed a massive togetherness to reach the third goal. Achraf Hakimi combined for a one-two with Sancho, who gave him the ball back in a classy back-heeled pass, as the Moroccan got into the box and fed Raphael Guerreiro, who scored.

It seemed like Dortmund was on their way to another good victory, and even had a controversial goal ruled out by the VAR.

However, inspired Volland was at it for Leverkusen. On 81 minutes, the striker created some space, got into the box and assisted Leon Bailey, who slotted at Roman Burki’s corner.

Leverkusen’s comeback came just a min later, as Lars Bender headed home from a corner to wrap it up for the hosts. 4-3 Bayer Leverkusen.

With the 4-3 away defeat, Borussia Dortmund lost their chance to reach the same points as Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich in this matchday. The Black and Yellow side now still keep in the third place, behind RB Leipzig and Bayern Munich, who face each other on Sunday. Bayer Leverkusen has moved up to fifth place in the Bundesliga table.
