Odd 3-4 Borussia Dortmund

Borussia Dortmund came from 3-0 down to beat Norwegian side Odd in a dramatic Europa League play-off first leg.

Dortmund had not conceded in their four competitive games under new boss Thomas Tuchel, but trailed within 13 seconds to Jone Samuelsen's header and were three down within 22 minutes.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang started the comeback on 34 minutes.

And Shinji Kagawa, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Aubameyang's second turned it around after the break.
