Borussia Dortmund scored two goals in injury time to grab a thrilling Champions League victory over Malaga and secure a place in the last four. Marco Reus and Felipe Santana scored the two late goals that put Dortmund through but the last goal was quite controversial as Santana looked offside. The first leg in Spain were goalless so Dortmund were the favourites to pull through at home but their plans were undone by Joaquin as he fired one home on 25 minutes. Robert Lewandowski equalised after an exquisite assist from Reus but substitute Eliseu put Malaga ahead again eight minutes from time.
Things looked almost over for Dortmund at that point but the Germans didn't give up and Reus pulled them back level in stoppage time. Dortmund still needed a goal to qualify and they got it through Santana who poked the ball into the net from a huge scramble inside the penalty area. The defender did seem offside though. Dortmund remain the only undefeated team in this season's Champions League.
The opening minutes of the game were not very spectacular, the two teams seemed fairly cautious and no chances were created until Joaquin darted past Marcel Schmelzer before firing a low shot past the goalkeeper from 20 yards. Dortmund started playing with more urgency and they were rewarded five minutes before the break when Reus set up Lewandowski with a superb back heel touch and the Polish striker provided one of his trademark clinical finishes.
Malaga had two big chances to score either side of the break, both through Joaquin and both headers, but both efforts were saved by goalkeeper Roman Weidenfeller. At the other end Lewandowski had a shot saved and Gotze fired one wide. It was Malaga who seemed more dangerous though as Weidenfeller saved a great effort from distance by Jeremy Toulalan. Malaga goalkeeper Willy also pulled off two good saves to keep his side narrowly ahead, first on Reus and then on Gotze. But then the dramatic finale came and Dortmund pulled through just when it seemed almost impossible.
Dortmund are now 11/2 to win the Champions League this season at Bet365 while German rivals Bayern Munich are 16/5 to win outright.
