Witsel, Reus score late as Dortmund win in German Cup

BERLIN (AP) Axel Witsel scored a dramatic equalizer on his debut and Marco Reus got the late winner as Borussia Dortmund beat Greuther Fuerth 2-1 in the German Cup on Monday.

Dortmund was on the verge of a first-round exit at the hands of the second-division club before Belgium midfielder Witsel - who had come on with just 15 minutes remaining - scored in the fifth minute of injury time to send the game to extra time. Reus then followed up with his own injury-time winner.

Dortmund, the 2017 champion, had failed to impress in Lucien Favre's first competitive game in charge, and it paid the price when Sebastian Ernst scored late for Fuerth.
