Borussia Dortmund literally came over the top to see themselves in the second round of German Cup after beating Greuther Furth 2:1 in away game. Die Borussen couldn’t unlock the opponent defense through the entire game and saw the warning sign on 75th minute after conceding a goal. But only near death, on the 95th minute Lucien Favre’s men made not much expected return when Marco Reus supplied newly arrival Axel Witsel with the fine cross and Belgian defender struck in the vital goal from the close range. Host seems completely stunned with a late equalizer while experienced Borussia converted their shock into another goal in extra time, produced by Reus himself. Great comeback!
- The draw for the second round of German Cup will be held on August 26th
- Axel Witsel joined Borussia on August 6th from Chinese club Tianjin Quanjian
