Julian Brandt Produces Filthy Turn And Goal For Borussia Dortmund Vs RB Leipzig
Julian Brandt produced a lovely turn and finish for Borussia Dortmund against RB Leipzig last night.
Dortmund welcomed the Bundesliga leaders to Signal Iduna Park and went 1-0 up through Julian Weigl, but it was Brandt's strike that put Dortmund 2-0 up and stole the headlines.
Jadon Sancho laid the ball off to the 23-year-old who chopped the ball around Dayot Upamecano before firing home.
Twitter reacted to the lovely bit of skill from the German midfielder.
Mans breaking ankles with turns like that what a goal :pray::fire:

Great goal from Julian Brandt and ANOTHER assist for Jadon Sancho.
Sancho now up to 8 goals & 9 assists in league so far this season.
Sensational young player.

It was a thoroughly entertaining game which eventually ended 3-3.
Leipzig clawed the game back to 2-2 just after half-time thanks to a Timo Werner double.
The young German is one of Europe's top strikers has has scored 18 Bundesliga goals this season, the same number as Robert Lewandowski.
But Dortmund regained the lead two minutes later thanks to Sancho who is in electric form.
The 19-year-old was criticised by manager Lucien Favre last month but since then he's shown his class.
Jadon Sancho has now scored in each of his last seven appearances for BVB across all competitions:
:soccer: vs. Paderborn
:soccer: vs. Barcelona
:soccer: vs. Hertha
:soccer::soccer: vs. Fortuna
:soccer: vs. Slavia Praha
:soccer: vs. Mainz 05
:soccer: vs. RB Leipzig
Another game, another goal for the 19-year old. pic.twitter.com/5IT6yVllf9

A victory for 'BVB' would have seen them move up to second, just behind table topping Leipzig.
But it wasn't to be as Leipzig substitute Patrik Schick levelled less than 15 minutes from time ensuring the game ended all square.
Despite this, it was Brandt's goal that managed to steal the show in an enthralling game.
