Hummels the hero For Dortmund
Shakhtar Donetsk 2 Borussia Dortmund 2:Borussia Dortmund grabbed a late 2-2 draw at Shakhtar Donetsk in a Champions League last 16 first leg which was overshadowed by a fatal plane crash involving fans.
The unmarked Mats Hummels headed in an 87th-minute corner after substitute Douglas Costa thought he had won it for the hosts in the 68th minute to leave the Germans as favourites ahead of the second leg in Dortmund on March 5.
The Ukrainians had struck first when Darijo Srna netted with a 31st-minute free kick but Dortmund deservedly scored through Robert Lewandowski four minutes before the break.
Brazilian Douglas Costa scored six minutes after coming on when he controlled a long ball over the top and swivelled to bury a fine shot into the corner of the net amid lax Dortmund defending.
A minute’s silence was held by players and fans inside the Donbass Arena before the match for at least four people who were killed when a plane carrying supporters to the match in eastern Ukraine overshot the Donetsk runway and crashed.
