Erling Haaland scored twice as Borussia Dortmund secured a dramatic 4-3 at Bayer Leverkusen.
The in-demand Norwegian scored a first-half equaliser to cancel out Leverkusen’s early opener courtesy of Florian Wirtz after just nine minutes.
Patrik Schick put the home side ahead again in first-half added time, but Julian Brandt levelled quickly after the restart.
