Borussia Dortmund's Champions League hopes are alive thanks to Jadon Sancho's late winner vs. RB Leipzig. (1:57)

Borussia Dortmund beat second-placed RB Leipzig 3-2 thanks to two goals from Jadon Sancho on Saturday, handing Bayern Munich the Bundesliga title and boosting their own chances of Champions League football next season.

The hosts, without injured top striker Erling Haaland, snatched a seventh-minute lead with a superb combination between Marco Reus and Thorgan Hazard, whose well-timed backheel flick sent the captain through to drill in his shot.
