BORUSSIA DORTMUND’S TROUBLES have been well-documented this season and they are currently in 10th place in the Bundesliga table after an awful first-half to the campaign.

After Champions League elimination at the hands of Juventus, the club’s only hope of salvaging something from the season appeared to be the German Cup (DFB Pokal) but their quarter-final against Hoffenheim proved a right battle.

Neven Subotic gave Jurgen Klopp’s side the lead after 19 minutes before the guests scored twice in seven minutes through Kevin Volland and Roberto Firmino.

Dortmund equalised shortly before the hour mark when Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang found the net and with no more goals, the game went to extra-time.

But with three minutes gone in the second period, an unlikely hero stepped forward to secure the victory for Dortmund as Sebastian Kehl sent a magnificent, curling half-volley to the net, via the inside of the upright.

He doesn’t get many but it could prove crucial in the club’s quest to salvage something from a miserable season.
