Quickfire goals from Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Marco Reus help Borussia Dortmund come from behind to hold a 2-1 half-time lead over Stuttgart.

Borussia Dortmund have come from behind to lead 2-1 against Stuttgart at the interval of their Bundesliga clash at the Westfalenstadion.

Karim Haggui headed the visitors ahead, before goals from Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Marco Reus in the space of three minutes turned the scores around by the half-time whistle.

Tunisian international defender Haggui nodded a 13th-minute Alexandru Maxim corner into the ground and over Nuri Sahin on the line.

However, a set piece at the other end yielded Jurgen Klopp's side an equaliser just six minutes later, with Sahin the provider, crossing for Sokratis to head low past Sven Ulreich.

Reus was foiled by the Stuttgart keeper moments later, but had doubled Dortmund's advantage within a minute, dribbling through Christian Genter and Haggui before drilling low into the corner.
