Der Klassiker ends 2-2 as Modeste scores dramatic equaliser for Dortmund

Borussia Dortmund ended their losing streak against Bayern Munich with a 2-2 draw in Der Klassiker. Anthony Modeste scored the equaliser for the black and yellow club with the last touch of the game, and prevented Bayern from taking all three points. 

Having dropped two points against their rivals, Bayern Munich are third in the table, level on 16 points with Borussia Dortmund. The two German giants are both not in the top two of the Bundesliga, with Freiburg and Union Berlin currently leading the table. 

History made in Der Klassiker as Bayern Munich draw against Dortmund

Youssoufa Moukoko became the youngest scorer in Der Klassiker following his goal for Dortmund. The 17-year-old made it 2-1 for the home team, after an assist from Modeste. It was a difficult finish for the youngster, who struggled to get the ball under control. But, it hit the back of the net after beating Manuel Neuer. 

Modeste squandered an amazing chance from point-blank range. A perfect cross from Karim Adeyemi ended up at the feet of the striker. But, he fumbled his opportunity to the disbelief of fans, and himself. 

However, he made amends by scoring his first-ever goal at the Signal Iduna Park in the final seconds of the game. 

Bayern had a number of opportunities to increase their lead, but were denied by the opposition goalkeeper. Alexander Meyer had to make a triple save to deny Bayern their third goal. And ultimately, it helped them salvage a point from the biggest game in Germany.
