Borussia Dortmund scored twice in stoppage time last night to defeat Malaga 3-2 in an incredible match and advance to the Champions League semi-finals for the first time in 15 years.

Borussia Dortmund: Lewandowski (40), Felipe Santana (90), Reus (90); Malaga: Joaquin (25),Eliseu (82)

Felipe Santana hit the winner after a goalmouth scramble in the third minute of injury time that looked offside, two minutes after Marco Reus scored what looked like a consolation as Malaga would have progressed on the away goals rule at 2-2.

Joaquin scored in the 25th minute to give the visitors the edge after their 0-0 draw in the first leg last Wednesday.

Robert Lewandowski pulled one back in the 40th but Dortmund still needed another goal.

Instead, Malaga substitute Eliseu thought he’d decided it in the 82nd minute with another goal that looked offside, only for Dortmund to complete a 
remarkable turnaround.
