After a goalless stalemate during the two side’s UEFA Champions League quarter-final first-leg, Dortmund startled Spanish opponents Malaga and surprised Europe’s elite when they set the second-leg tie alight by scoring twice in injury-time to dramatically book their place in the semi-finals. Robert Lewandowski, as ever, equalised for the hosts after Joaquin gave Malaga the lead inside 25 minutes, before substitute Eliseu’s 82nd minute strike looked to have given the visitors a historic victory. But Marco Reus and then Felipe Santana scored within just 70 seconds of each other in stoppage-time to complete a miraculous last-ditch comeback and become the first team needing to score two injury-time goals to win in the Champions League since Manchester United back in the 1999 final. Even Klopp admitted after the game, “My assistants and me were looking at each other in shock in the dressing room and saying ‘this is crazy’. This is the best I’ve ever felt”.
