Terzic scores a wild Classicer as Kahn cracks



Head coach Terzic saw his side fall two goals behind after Leon Goretzka and Leroy Sane struck from distance.

He later suggested that other teams would have given up at that point and suffered a heavy defeat, so Dortmund’s resilience and refusal to concede was cause for celebration.

Yusufo Mukoka reduced the deficit in the 74th minute and Anthony Modeste equalized in the fifth minute of stoppage time when he headed home Nick Schlotterbeck’s cross.

The delirious scenes inside Signal Iduna Park told their own story as Dortmund ended a run of eight consecutive defeats against their arch-rivals. Images of former Bayern Munich goalkeeper Oliver Kahn in the stands show a picture from the other side of the ledger.

“It was a very tight match,” Terzic said. “In particular, in the first half we defended very well and kept compactness in the center.

“The ball was in front of us. We gave only one shot on goal, which made the score 1:0.

“It is not so easy to maintain discipline at that moment, when emotions and the desire to take risks are transmitted to the team from the stands.

“Then you have to be careful that you don’t open too early and that the gaps don’t get too big.”

Terzic responded to Sane’s strike in the 53rd minute by bringing on substitute Karim Adeyemi, Modesto and Thorgan Hazard to save the game.

“It got wild towards the end; that was also the purpose of the replacements,” Terzic said. “It was end to end.

“What was very positive was that we believed until the last moment that something was still possible, even though we missed a great opportunity to equalize in the 82nd minute.”

At that point, Modest saved Adeyemi’s cross, but after Bayern were reduced to 10 men, losing Kingsley Coman to a second yellow card when he dragged Adeyemi, the final twist awaited.

“It was a well-deserved point because we created a lot of chances at the end,” Terzic said. “When you lose 2-0 to Bayern, the match usually ends 4-0 or 5-0.

“It didn’t happen today. Today we were able to put an exclamation point on the issue of mentality.”
