Lerverkusen were solid and didn't allow Dortmund time and space to settle into the game and held on to their lead going into half-time.

Marco Reus tried to get an early equaliser in the 49th minute but his long range shot sailed over the crossbar.

Dortmund looked a better side in the second half. taking the game to the visitors but Leverkusen's defence remained unshaken. 

In the 85th minute they looked to get for a late equaliser as Ginter rose to head a corner towards goal, but Bernd Leno dived well to parry the effort away.

Dortmund turned on the pressure in injury time as Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan had their efforts saved by Leno. 

But it was Leverkusen that had the last say in injury time as Stefan Kiesling rifled one into the top right corner to hand the visitors three points.
