German Cup: Haaland extra-time goal helps Dortmund past Paderborn

Erling Braut Haaland scored an extra-time winner as Borussia Dortmund edged past second-tier Paderborn in the third round of the German Cup.

Goals from Emre Can and England winger Jadon Sancho saw the hosts take charge.

But goals from Julian Justvan and a Prince Osei Owusu penalty – which came deep in stoppage time after a VAR review – leveled the tie.

However, 20-year-old Haaland then settled the contest after another VAR review.

The Norwegian has now scored 22 goals in 21 games for Dortmund this term, although he thought that he had sealed their victory much earlier.

But in a remarkable turn of events, his goal in the fifth minute of added time was chalked off after a VAR review for an earlier foul in the Dortmund area, which then led to Paderborn’s penalty.

The result means that Dortmund have won their last 26 cup matches against opposition from below the Bundesliga.
