Leverkusen rebounded, with Diaby launching another quick move and setting up 17-year-old Wirtz for the winner in the 80th to earn their first win in five league games which moved them into second place on 32 points.
“This win was very crucial for us,” said Leverkusen’s Lars Bender. “After the equaliser we had to overcome some difficult moments and had a bit of luck as well. But we had lots of counter attacks and luckily scored the winner with one of them.”Dortmund’s title hopes suffered a serious blow and the Ruhr valley club have now won just three of their last nine games. Dortmund are fourth on 29 points and will be 10 behind leaders Bayern Munich if the champions beat Augsburg on Wednesday. headtopics.com
