Hummels grabs late leveller to deny Donetsk

Published 14/02/2013 | 04:00

Borussia Dortmund grabbed a late 2-2 draw at Shakhtar Donetsk in a Champions League first leg which was overshadowed by a fatal plane crash involving fans.

Mats Hummels headed in from an 87th-minute corner after substitute Douglas Costa thought he had won it for the hosts in the 68th minute to leave the German side as favourites ahead of the second leg last 16 tie in Dortmund on March 5.

The Ukrainians had struck first when Darijo Srna netted with a 31st-minute free kick, but Dortmund deservedly scored through Robert Lewandowski four minutes before half-time.

The match went ahead, despite at least five people being killed when a plane carrying supporters to the match in eastern Ukraine overshot the Donetsk runway and broke up when it attempted an emergency landing hours before kick-off.

A minute's silence was held inside the Donbass Arena by players and fans before the match.

Dortmund dominated early on with several half chances but Felipe Santana then committed a needless foul and Srna's dipping effort went in past goalkeeper Roman Weidenfeller who could have done better. The visitors also hit the bar through Hummels before Lewandowski's leveller.
