Dortmund. Borussia Dortmund were well on their way to their third win in as many games when the German giants took on Werder Bremen in the Bundesliga on Saturday.

Dortmund led 2-0, but after an incredible collapse at the end of the match, it ended with Bremen winning 3-2.

Englishman Lee Buchanan started Bremen’s comeback with his reduction to 1-2 in the 89th minute. A few minutes into added time, the match was turned completely on its head.

First, Niklas Schmidt equalized with a header and 40 seconds after the ball had been given up, Scotland’s Oliver Burke hammered home to make it 3-2 in front of wide-eyed and shocked Dortmund fans in the “yellow wall” end stand.

Burke thus became the great hero for Werder Bremen for the second game in a row. In the previous round, the Scot equalized the final score 2-2 deep in extra time against Stuttgart.

Jens Stage started inside for Werder Bremen, but experienced Saturday’s wild comeback from the bench after being replaced fifteen minutes into the second half.

The victory is Bremen’s first this season in the Bundesliga.

Hoffenheim were also in action on Saturday away to Bayer Leverkusen. It ended with a 3-0 win for Hoffenheim, who had Robert Skov on the pitch from the start.

The Danish winger sent the ball into the net shortly before the break, but the goal ended up being disallowed. After a VAR check, the referee concluded that a free kick had been committed in the build-up to the goal.

Skov was replaced with approximately 20 minutes remaining in regular time. Jacob Bruun Larsen started on the bench and was replaced in the 85th minute.

Bo Svensson’s Mainz team visited Augsburg on Saturday and took home three points after a late goal by Lee Jae-sung, who scored well into extra time to make the final score 2-1. Thus, Mainz has seven points after three games.

Mads Pedersen started inside for Augsburg and played 85 minutes, while Marcus Ingvartsen spent the entire game on the bench for Mainz.
