Dortmund hold Bayern Munich to a draw after 95th minute Modeste goal

There was a dramatic ending to the derby between Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund on Saturday. Edin Terzic's team mounted a monumental comeback from 2-0 down and ended up being applauded by their fans at the end of the match,.

The points were shared at Signal-Iduna Park thanks to an Anthony Modeste goal in the 95th minute. Bayern Munich appeared to have the match won when they went into a 2-0 goal lead courtesy of goals from Leon Goretzka and Leroy Sane. However, in the 74th minute, Youssoufa Moukoko pulled one back and in the last minute of stoppage time, Modeste, who had joined the the club because of Sebastien Haller's testicular cancer, struck the equalizing goal.

Borussia Dortmund didn't deserve to lose

Terzic's charges were the better side, they dominated the ball, had the better chances during the first half of the game... but went behind to a brilliant strike from Goretzka. The German midfielder shot from outside the box to expertly beat the goalkeeper.

At the start of the second half, Sane mirrored Goretzka by scoring with another shot from outside the box to make it 2-0.

A prize that seemed lost

Moukoko, in the 74th minute, pulled a goal back with a pass from Modeste that found its way into the box after Jude Bellingham's exquisite through ball.

Dortmund then began to believe, and eventually found a point thanks to the Frenchman's late goal, who came ran like a freight train to the far post to finish off a cross from Nico Schlotterbeck.

In truth it is a point that is of no use to anyone, but the way in which it came about ensured Borussia Dortmund left the match the happier of the two teams.
