Captain Marco Reus and Delaney were ruled out due to injuries even as Lucien Favre used a front three in the game.
Julian Brandt, Erling Haaland and Jadon Sancho were the font three.
American sensation, Gio Reyna was introduced for Julian Brandt but that didn’t change the situation much.
Julian Brandt, Erling Haaland and Jadon Sancho were the front three and for the first time in his Bundesliga career, Erling Braut Haaland fired blank.
Sancho gave an assist. The constant show up by Dortmund means there’s still chances Borussia Dortmund could still catch up with Bayern Munich and Leipzig.
The Dierottenbullen held the Bavarians to a goalless draw at the Allianz Arena, paving way for Dortmund and the rest of the teams within the top four to inch closer to Bayern.
Lucien Favre have his work cutout for him at the moment, if Dortmund’s desire is to win the Bundesliga title this season, they need to start grinding out results regardless of who they face and were they play.
