Paderborn - A stunning second-half display allowed SC Paderborn to come from behind and beat VfL Bochum 1848 4-1 at the Benteler-Arena.

After an even opening, Bochum took the lead against the run of play when Danny Latza cut inside from the left to hit an unstoppable drive into the top corner, but they were blown away by the hosts after the break.

Set-piece specialist Alban Meha got Paderborn level will a trademark curling free-kick, before then smashing another one through the hands of Bochum keeper Andreas Luthe. Mario Vrancic then made it 3-1 with a cool finish through the keeper’s legs, before Mahir Saglik’s penalty after a foul by Luthe on Jens Wemmer completed an amazing turnaround.
