Leverkusen's Stanisic rescues unbeaten streak with late Dortmund equalizer

Posted : 21 April 2024

In a dramatic encounter, Josip Stanisic's late goal rescued Bayer Leverkusen's unbeaten streak, securing a 1-1 draw against Borussia Dortmund. Leverkusen, crowned Bundesliga champions, seemed destined for defeat after Niclas Fuellkrug put Dortmund ahead with minutes left.


However, Leverkusen's resilience shone through as Stanisic's stoppage-time equalizer, their 14th late goal this season, salvaged a point, keeping their hopes alive of completing an unbeaten Bundesliga season.


Both teams, fatigued from midweek European ties, struggled to create clear chances in the first half. Dortmund's Fuellkrug broke the deadlock in the closing stages, only for Leverkusen to respond dramatically.


Leverkusen coach Xabi Alonso's tactical changes, including the introduction of Victor Boniface, injected urgency into their play, ultimately leading to Stanisic's crucial goal in the dying moments.


Despite Leverkusen's heroics, the draw leaves Dortmund two points adrift of fourth-placed RB Leipzig in the race for the final Champions League spot. Dortmund faces a challenging fixture against Leipzig next week, with suspensions to Ian Maatsen and Emre Can compounding their woes.


Meanwhile, Werder Bremen secured a vital win against Stuttgart, with Marvin Ducksch's brace propelling them to a 2-1 victory. The win lifts Bremen out of the relegation playoff spot, providing a significant boost in their bid to retain Bundesliga status.
