Shakhtar 2-2 Borussia: Hummels scores late equalizer for Borussia Dortmund

Shakhtar 2-2 Borussia: Hummels scores late equalizer for Borussia Dortmund

Borussia Dortmund players displayed true character and class to come from behind twice and earn a crucial 2-2 draw at Donbass Arena.

The game could have gone either way as both teams were playing an attractive, entertaining football from kick-off to final whistle. Although Shakhtar will be undoubtedly pleased with the performance delivered after a long winter break, they will be disappointed with the final result. The Ukrainian side failed to convert the numerous chances in the goals and secure the much-needed victory.

Shakhtar skipper Darijo Srna gave Ukrainian side the lead in the 31st minute of the game with an excellent free-kick only for Robert Lewandowski to level the scoring with a low close-range finish ten minutes later. The substitute Douglas Costa seized upon Hummels’ mistake to score a cracking goal with an acrobatic finish. Matts Hummels made up for his mistake, scoring a crucial equalizer in the dying stages of the game with a header from a corner. The draw puts the German side in the driving seat ahead of the encounter in Dortmund.
