Malaga still ahead on away goals. Second half coming up.


The RM/Galatasaray game is getting interesting too *

5 absolute class goals in the game. Ronaldo's second was probably the least attractive of the bunch and it was a gem.


Malaga scored again @ 82'. BVB09 is finished *

Au contraire. Double-miracle finish for Dortmund.

EDIT: Shades of the ManU miracle comeback in 1999.

GOAL - Dortmund 3-2 Malaga (Agg: 3-2) - Felipe Santana (90+3 mins)

Oh my word! I don't believe this, Dortmund have done it!

Again it's a big ball lumped up, it cannons around in the box, Marco Reus shanks a shot into the shins of goalkeeper Willy, and Felipe Santana bundles it in from inches out.

2135:
GOAL - Dortmund 2-2 Malaga (Agg: 2-2) - Marco Reus (90+1 min)

Surely not?

Long ball pumped up, Neven Subotic squares it and Marco Reus picks up the pieces to net.

That winning goal is an absolute horror show of the linesman's arts. We're told that the Málaga players have just seen a replay, and are going a bit mental about it.

I count 4 offside on the initial play in.


And aside from the obvious, the scorer is offside too.

His teammate gets a touch on the ball when he is behind the goaltender, hence only one opponent behind.


Nice...

Offsides rule need to be abolished.


If I remember right, experiments say offsides is necessary.

The game devolves to an ugly back-and-forth-bypassing-midfield without it.


In all fairness, Eusebio was also offsides *
