Bundesliga, Bochum achieves the feat: overturns the 3-0 against Fortuna and saves on penalties

Bochum’s feat in the second leg of the Bundesliga play-off against Fortuna Dusseldorf. In fact, the Ruhr team first managed to overcome the 3-0 deficit from the first leg, taking the match first to extra time, where the red and whites repeatedly came close to scoring the goal that would give them promotion, and then to penalties. After a long battle from eleven meters, Tanaka’s mistake decides the match, shooting high over the crossbar. Bochum thus achieves salvation and will once again be at the starting line of the next Bundesliga.
