Borussia Dortmund 3-2 Inter: Conte's men blow two-goal lead

Inter Milan blew a two-goal lead to suffer a 3-2 defeat to Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday.

Dortmund, inspired by Achraf Hakimi, came from behind, scoring three second-half goals to cancel Antonio Conte's men 2-0 lead.

Inter went ahead after just five minutes when Lautaro Martinez out-paces Mats Hummels down the Dortmund left and powers into the box.

He has Lukaku with him but opts to go it alone, cutting inside past Weigl and finishing past Bürki in front of a stunned Südtribüne.

A huge chance to equalise came for Dortmund in the 18th minute when Hakimi crosses low into Götze who controls and turns on the penalty spot but shoots straight at Handanovic who saves well.

With four minutes to the end of the first half, Inter extended their lead through Matias Vecino.

Before the half-time whistle, Sancho almost pulls one back for Dortmund. Schulz cuts back and the Englishman takes one touch to control and another to shoot - but Handanovic reacts brilliantly to save at point-blank range.

After the break, Dortmund are back and in a better form as they quickly reduced the deficit after six minutes of the restart, thanks to Achraf Hakimi's strike.

Brandt finds Hummels on the edge of the box and the centre back squares it on to Hazard who plays vertically into Götze. He crosses low and Hakimi taps it home.

With continued pressure on their visitors, the host were level four minutes after the hour-mark as Julian Brandt equalised.

Straight from the bench, Alcacer uses his first touch to intercept an Inter thrown-in straight into the path of Brandt, who dribbles into the box from the left and makes it 2-2.

A rejuvenated Dortmund took the lead in the 77th minute with a lovely strike from Achraf Hakimi who also completed his brace to the delight of home fans at the Signal Iduna Park.

While the visitors already lost track, Dortmund held on to earn all three points on the night.
