Borussia Dortmund 3-3 Paderborn: Dortmund stage stunning fight back

Jadon Sancho
Sancho's goal was his fourth in the Bundesliga this season

Jadon Sancho scored one goal and assisted another as Borussia Dortmund came back from three goals down to draw 3-3 with Paderborn.

The visitors raced into a three-goal lead in a sensational first-half display with Streli Mamba scoring twice and Gerrit Holtmann adding a third.

But England forward Sancho got the ball rolling for Dortmund with a driven finish before Axel Witsel struck.

And Marco Reus headed home Sancho's cross in stoppage time to earn a draw.

Paderborn players were disconsolate at the final whistle, having come so close to a famous win.

The point leaves Paderborn bottom of the table with five points from 12 games.

Dortmund, meanwhile, are fifth, five points behind leaders Borussia Monchengladbach.
