Borussia Dortmund scored two goals in injury-time to complete a stunning 3-2 comeback win against Malaga and advance to the Champions League semi-finals.

Joaquin put the visitors ahead in the 25th minute but Polish striker Robert Lewandowski brought the Germans level five minutes before the break.

Jurgen Klopp's side threw everything they had at the Spanish side in an attempt to score a second goal that would sent them through.

But Dortmund left themselves exposed at the back and Eliseu looked to have sent Malaga into the semi-finals when he turned the ball home to put his team 2-1 ahead with eight minutes to play.

However, Marco Reus and Felipe Santana both scored in injury time as Jurgen Klopp's men pulled off an incredible turnaround and book their place in the last four.

Borussia Dortmund wasted a host of chances to take a healthy advantage into the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final against Malaga tonight.

Mario Gotze was the main culprit, spurning three golden openings, as the visitors failed to find a way past the impressive Willy Caballero at La Rosaleda.

The away draw still leaves Jurgen Klopp's side in a strong position ahead of the home leg, but the boss will know the tie could have been all but wrapped up already.

Instead Malaga, who, for all their opponents' dominance, still caused Dortmund the odd nervy moment, will travel to the Westfalenstadion still in with a shout of the last four.

Malaga had the first chance when Javier Saviola ran onto a clipped pass down the right of the area, got to the byline and cut inside, only to opt to go for the near post rather than the far and dragged his shot wide.

But it did not take long for Dortmund's attacking triumvirate of Robert Lewandowski, Gotze and Marco Reus to start exerting their influence as Dortmund started to open their hosts up almost at will.

Gotze ran clear on to a Lewandowski header as the Malaga backline appealed in vain for offside, but his shot lacked power and Caballero dived to make a one-handed save.

The Germany international then got in one-on-one down the right of the area, but Caballero was again equal to his side-foot shot.

Reus then brought another save out of the keeper after neat link-up play and a low shot from the edge of the area.

The young trio were causing Malaga all sorts of problems, with only the killer finish lacking.

The hosts showed they could still be a threat when Dortmund keeper Roman Weidenfeller had to be quick off his line to get to the ball ahead of Saviola.

Their defence, though, continued to live dangerously and Weligton was booked for pulling back Lewandowski right on the edge of the area, Reus curling the resulting free-kick wide.

But Malaga ended the half in the ascendancy.

Weidenfeller, under no pressure, spilled a Joaquin cross and Felipe Santana go to scramble the ball away to spare his team-mate's blushes.

But the keeper redeemed himself with a fine save to keep out a Weligton header from a Joaquin corner.

Lewandowski fluffed another golden Dortmund chance minutes after the break, skewing his shot horribly wide when Gotze's cut-back found him in plenty of space in front of goal.

Gotze then fired wide of the far post after racing on to a measured pass down the right as another opportunity came and went for the Germans.

At the other end, Isco drilled effort was parried well by Weidenfeller, but it was Dortmund who left the pitch at full-time with a feeling of what might have been.

Here's the proof that John Terry possesses the brains to go with his brawn… or so we thought.

Chelsea's captain posted a proud picture of himself solving a Rubik's Cube on his Instagram account on Thursday, with the message: 'Say no more. Complete.'

But just hours later, Terry admitted he cheated the 'Cube'.

'Sorry these pics are the other way round,' the former Engaand captain revealed. 'It was so hard. Respect if anyone has completed one of these. '

The puzzle, a cultural sensation when it
was launched in 1980, is a fiendishly difficult test of memory and
logic – a bit like trying to recall the long list of Chelsea managers
under Roman Abramovich's reign.

To solve the Rubik's Cube, one must align a jumbled patchwork of squares so that all six faces contain a block of the same colour. We're guessing Blue is Terry's favourite side.

And seeing as Terry suggests he is clearly an expert at unravelling even the most daunting of enigmas, how about he next turns his attentions to the Chelsea manager's job

Quite who Abramovich should appoint as permanent boss at Stamford Bridge in the summer is anyone's guess now that Pep Guardiola has shunned Roman's roubles in favour of security and stability at Bayern Munich.

Surely it won't be Rafa Benitez, who remains deeply unpopular with Chelsea fans. There are question marks over the pedigree of young pretenders Jurgen Klopp and Diego Simeone, especially after the disaster of Andre Villas-Boas's reign. Guus Hiddink has turned down the job before and may do so again. And with Jose Mourinho having fallen out with Abramovich long ago, is there anyone left

Now that's a real humdinger. Better try a crossword instead, John…

shootout against England) but players can look a bit foolish when it doesn't (we're referring to you here, Mr Lineker).

The Klinsmann

Jurgen Klinsmann was known as someone who liked to take a tumble whenever possible, whether there was contact or not.

So, when he came to Tottenham in 1994, English crowds expected to see him dive – but not in the way he did. After scoring on his debut against Sheffield Wednesday, the striker sent up his reputation by diving across the turf in celebration.

And a craze was born.

Bend it like Beckham

OK, this came from a film title. You've got us. But the movie would not have got its name had it not been for Beckham's ability to hit stunning free-kicks and the term has entered the language of football.

The way the former England captain takes set-pieces is unique, running up to the ball at a 90-degree angle and hitting the ball with pace and swerve, often into the top corner of the goal or on to the head of a team-mate.

There is nobody else who can quite bend it like Beckham.

Grobbelaar legs

A goalkeeper known for his eccentricites – even among a section of football commonly referred to as mad – Bruce Grobbelaar's finest hour came in the 1984 European Cup final.

The game had gone to a penalty shootout and the Liverpool keeper decided to psyche out the Roma kick takers by 'wobbling' his legs on the line.

It worked and Liverpool won the European Cup. Twenty one years later Jerzy Dudek tried it and Liverpool won again. Maybe you have to play for Liverpool for it to work…

The Higuita

From one eccentric goalkeeper to another. This is also known as the Scorpion kick and Colombia's Rene Higuita lit up Wembley when he pulled it off in 1995.

A cross by Jamie Redknapp (now better known to you all as a Sportsmail columnist) was looping harmlessly towards the goal and Higuita thought 'It's a friendly, let's liven it up a bit', jumped, arced his feet behind his back and backheeled the ball while in mid air.

It was an astonishing piece of skill and led to a number of people needing hospital treatment after injuring themselves trying to replicate it.

VIDEO: Higuita's amazing Scorpion kick

The Zidane turn

Also known as the Marseille turn, the great Frenchman was a regular exponent of the move and left many a defender bamboozled as he glided past them.

It is more of a pirouette, in truth, and Zidane would drag the ball from the sole of one boot to the other in order to beat the defender.

That was the beautiful side of his game, the other side we witnessed at the 2006 World Cup final…

Yeboah volley

This one came on the back of a stupendous goal by Tony Yeboah for Leeds against Liverpool and the Sky commentator's cry of 'Yeboaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah' as the striker's volley crashed in off the bar and into the net.

For weeks after, if anybody in the playground or in an amateur game scored any type of volley, someone would inevitably echo the commentary and the Ghanaian's name entered the football dictionary.

We were going to stop there but the board has been raised and we're into…

Fergie time

The Manchester United manager's famous look at his watch is an integral part of football. It helps, of course, that his side score so regularly once the clock has ticked past 90 minutes.

This has led to the perception that, should United be losing as the game enters its final exchanges, Ferguson looking at his wrist will lead to more added time being played and a goal being scored.

This may or may not be true but the Old Trafford faithful gleefully sing about 'Fergie time' to rile opposition fans who complain about the referee 'playing until United score'.

Mix Diskerud scored deep into stoppage time as the United States twice fought back from a goal down to hold Russia to a 2-2 draw in the first match between the two former Cold War adversaries since 2000.

Debutant Fyodor Smolov put the home team 1-0 up in the ninth minute of the friendly before Michael Bradley's spectacular volley in the 76th minute rewarded an improved second-half display by the Americans in the southern city of Krasnodar.

Roman Shirokov restored Russia's advantage with an 84th-minute penalty and it seemed they would extend their winning streak to five games under Italian coach Fabio Capello.

Substitute Diskerud's low shot then took a lucky bounce and fooled keeper Vladimir Gabulov four minutes into stoppage time.

The Americans were tentative early on and the hosts took full advantage, Smolov beating keeper Tim Howard with a low drive into the corner of the net.

Smolov's joy was short-lived though as suffered a leg muscle injury and had to be substituted.
The U.S., who also lost skipper Carlos Bocanegra to injury early in the first half, had trouble keeping possession.

Clarence Goodson, who replaced Bocanegra, produced the first shot for the visitors after nearly half an hour but it was easily saved by Gabulov.

Russia increased the tempo after the break as Alan Dzagoyev went close with a header and fellow substitute Renat Yanbayev fired straight at Howard from close range.

Capello introduced several newcomers including winger Denis Cheryshev who plays for Real Madrid's B team Castilla and has yet to feature for Jose Mourinho's side while U.S. coach Juergen Klinsmann gave a debut to midfielder Joshua Gatt who plays for Norwegian champions Molde.

The Americans slowly started to find their rhythm and Bradley controlled Jozy Altidore's header before blasting the ball in from the edge of the box.

Shirokov made it 2-1 to Russia only for Diskerud to save the day for the U.S. when his shot took a deflection, bounced over the keeper, hit the post and went in.

Despite the setback the Russians, who have won all four of their World Cup qualifiers, stretched their unbeaten run under Capello to six games.

'I'm really pleased with what we showed today,' the former England manager, who replaced Dick Advocaat following Russia's poor showing at Euro 2012, told reporters.

'I've managed to see a lot of new young players tonight and now I could use them in competitive matches.'

Klinsmann praised his players for a spirited display against 'one of the best teams in the world. We showed a lot of character to come back. We showed we can play with the best teams in the world,' said the former Germany striker.

It was a fitting end to a good year for the Americans who beat Italy 1-0 in Genoa in February, outclassed Scotland 5-1 in another friendly in May and earned a first away win over Mexico by a 1-0 margin at the intimidating Azteca stadium in August.

The teams last met in a friendly in Moscow 12 years ago won 2-0 by Russia.

WHO SHOULD RODGERS BUY

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers wants two forwards in January to strengthen his squad and shoulder the goalscoring burden with Luis Suarez.

Rodgers believes the best 'asset-buying' age for a player is between 22 and 29. The handicap is that Liverpool's American owners have preferred to buy players of 23 or under.

Suarez has scored seven league goals this season – in his last nine matches – which is more than half the team's tally for the campaign.

'I thought he was unbelievable. It was a brilliant goal for Luis and a terrific performance and it bodes well for us going forward,' said Rodgers.

'We play him (Suarez) in that false nine role. He's not a traditional No 9 who's up there, stood, static.

'That's why when we get a number of players in who can work off his qualities, that's going to make us a real threat.

'I ask him to get on the move and get defenders out of their positions.

'His cleverness and movement at the moment is world class. It's then important that we've got men running in off that.

'If we can add to the group, you can see the excitement in our team.'

Rodgers hopes to add reinforcements when the transfer window opens in January.

'It doesn't worry me,' Rodgers added.

'He (Suarez) gets picked to score goals but of course I would want them to be more spread out.

'Everyone knows that is the key
feature for us. We need to get goals from other areas but I can't
complain when we play to that level.

'Once we get that type of player in that is really going to finish off a lot of great work for us.'

Suarez's constant running and teasing of the
Magpies defence also led to visiting captain Fabricio Coloccini being
sent off late on for a foul on the 25-year-old.

Rodgers said: 'Coloccini got sent off because he was frustrated. He's been a great defender for the last number of years for Newcastle but Luis is so bright and clever, and a world-class striker in that form really frustrates defenders.

Anfield boss Brendan Rodgers is currently reduced to just one recognised striker in Luis Suarez after 10.5million summer arrival Fabio Borini was ruled out for three months.

The Italy international will undergo surgery on a fractured foot after sustaining the damage on Under 21 duty last week.

Uruguay star Suarez is due to arrive back on Merseyside ahead of this weekend's Barclays Premier League clash against Reading.

Rodgers will be hoping the forward is sufficiently recovered from his long jaunt from South America.

But without Borini, Rodgers is relying on Suarez to provide the goals and stay injury-free for the next 12 weeks.
