BV Borussia Dortmund kept their 1. Bundesliga title hopes alive by fighting back from a goal down to beat TSV 1860 München 2-1 on Sunday.
Four points behind leaders
Second-placed Dortmund were less impressive than in Thursday's 4-0 demolition of Milan AC in the first leg of their UEFA Cup semi-final but they did enough to remain four points behind leaders Bayer 04 Leverkusen with just four matches remaining.
Schroth puts visitors ahead
Striker Markus Schroth put the visitors ahead in the 12th minute but Dortmund, cheered on by over 60,000 fans, levelled through midfielder Sebastian Kehl eight minutes later before wing-back Jörg Heinrich hit the winner in the 26th minute. The 1997 UEFA Champions League winners wasted many opportunities after that but held on to their lead.
"We fought well"
"We could have made it easier for ourselves but we fought well," said Dortmund coach Matthias Sammer after the match. "What we have to do now is win our last four matches and we'll see what happens."
Meanwhile, late goals from midfield player Fernando José Meira and substitute Steffen Handschuh gave VfB Stuttgart a 2-0 win against strugglers SC Freiburg in Sunday's other game.
