Werder Bremen produced an early contender for comeback of the season after scoring THREE times in six minutes to sink Borussia Dortmund.
Edin Terzic's side were 2-0 up and flying at Signal Iduna Park thanks to goals from Julian Brandt and Raphael Guerrero, the latter looking like he might just have confirmed the victory when he struck in the 77th minute.
But Bremen completely turned the game around in a remarkable sequence. Ex Derby County youngster Lee Buchanan pulled one back with a stunning individual effort in the 89th minute, before Niklas Schmidt headed home the leveller three minutes later.

And then the comeback was complete as in the 95th minute, Bremen countered and former Nottingham Forest, RB Leipzig and West Brom forward Oliver Burke was played in behind.
Beating defenders to the ball, he produced an emphatic finish at the near post for a quite sublime finale in the Bundesliga clash.
