Hoffenheim came from behind to beat Borussia Dortmund 2-1 in the German Bundesliga, after a late Andrej Kramaric winner in the 87th minute.

Mario Gotze scored the opening goal for Dortmund, squeezing a shot over the line from Achraf Hakimi’s pull-back.

Dortmund should have sealed the game with a lot of missed opportunuties, but substitute Sargis Adamyan equalized after Jurgen Locadia’s shot was saved.

Andrej Kramaric headed a late winner from Adamyan’s cross, confirmed after a long video assistant referee delay.

Dortmund forward Sancho, 19, missed out on the chance to break the record for Bundesliga goals scored in a calendar year by a teenager, after he failed to score for the first time in eight games.

His haul of 15 is level with Horst Koppel for Stuttgart in 1967 and Olaf Thon for Schalke in 1985.

Victory took Hoffenheim up to sixth in the table, three points behind Dortmund.
