Soccer-Golden oldie Pizarro deals Dortmund hopes another blow

BREMEN, Germany, May 4 (Reuters) - Borussia Dortmund let slip a two-goal lead and were held 2-2 at Werder Bremen, seriously denting their Bundesliga title hopes, on Saturday with 40-year-old Claudio Pizarro scoring the equaliser for the hosts.

Two stunning first-half goals, a solo effort from Christian Pulisic and a free kick from Paco Alcacer, gave Dortmund a 2-0 lead and put them in complete control before they self-destructed after halftime.

Kevin Moehwald pulled one back with a shot which slipped through goalkeeper Roman Buerki’s legs in the 70th minute and Peruvian veteran Pizarro rifled home the equaliser as Bremen capitalised on a defensive mix-up five minutes later.

Dortmund dropped four points behind Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich with two matches each to play, meaning that the Bavarians need one more win to seal a seventh successive title. (Writing by Brian Homewood, editing by Pritha Sarkar)
