Dortmund settle for draw after late own goal

Football

Sept 22 (Reuters) – Borussia Dortmund’s Michael Delaney turned a Daichi Kamada shot into his own net in the 88th minute to hand hosts Eintracht Frankfurt an unexpected 2-2 draw on Sunday as his team dropped to third place in the Bundesliga.

Dortmund, fresh from their midweek 0-0 draw at home to Barcelona in the Champions League group stage, had twice taken the lead — through Axel Witsel in the 11th minute and Jadon Sancho in the 66th.

But Eintracht first came back with a 45th minute Andre Silva goal before Delaney’s unlucky clearance from Kamada’s shot landed in the Dortmund goal and earned the hosts a point.

RB Leipzig are top on 13 points after a 3-0 win at Werder Bremen on Saturday. Champions Bayern Munich, who crushed Cologne 4-0, are in second place on 11, with Dortmund third on 10. (Reporting by Karolos Grohmann; Editing by Ken Ferris)
