In 45 stellar minutes, Borussia Dortmund might have just swung Group F’s fate permanently.
The German giants scored three goals in the second half to turn a two-goal deficit into a 3-2 win over Inter Milan at the Westfalenstadion, setting up a mouth-watering encounter with Barcelona at the end of the month.
Elsewhere, Hirving “Chucky” Lozano scored his first Champions League goal for Napoli in a 1-1 draw with RB Salzburg, while Liverpool beat Genk 2-1.
Borussia Dortmund beats Inter Milan in thriller
Barcelona’s stumble Tuesday cracked the door open in Group F. Dortmund ran through it.
Two Achraf Hakimi goals, including the game-winner in the 77th minute, sandwiched Julian Brandt’s tally off the bench as Dortmund overturned a 2-0 deficit at home.
Jadon Sancho played a great ball to Hakimi for the decisive finish (via Bleacher Report):
That followed Brandt scoring from a tight angle mere moments after entering the game:
Inter looked like the much better side in the first half, never more so than in the beautiful build-up to Matías Vecino doubling the lead:
Dortmund jumps up to second in the group, a point behind Barcelona. The two played to a scoreless draw on the first matchday, but their return fixture on Nov. 27 at the Nou Camp will now hand pole position to the winner, since Barcelona dozed off against Slavia Prague in what figured to be their easiest Group F fixture.
Chucky Lozano scores but Napoli disappoints
Chucky Lozano had a good night. His team could’ve had a better one.
Lozano scored his first Champions League goal for Napoli, but the Italian giants only managed a draw against American manager Jesse Marsch and RB Salzburg.
Erling Håland scored his seventh goal of the competition for Salzburg, a penalty that handed the visitors a stunning lead in the 11th minute.
Shortly before halftime, Lozano leveled the match by cutting inside on his right foot and beating Salzburg goalkeeper Carlos Miguel Coronel low and to the left:
It’s Lozano’s first Champions League goal since he scored for PSV Eindhoven nearly a year ago on Dec. 11, 2018, the final matchday of last campaign.
Similar to Group F, Group E will swing on a huge match Nov. 27, when Napoli visits Anfield to face Liverpool. If Lozano and Co. don’t win there, the final matchday might get a little more interesting than they hoped.
Ox’s winner keeps Liverpool in good shape
Liverpool dispatched with Genk for the second time in as many matchweeks, this time a 2-1 victory at Anfield thanks to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s impressive spinning finish early in the second half:
Georginio Wijnaldum’s opener was a bit fortunate, and Liverpool wasn’t at its biting best. But the Reds didn’t need to be.
They just needed a full six points from the two fixtures against Genk, and that’s what they got.
