Borussia Dortmund’s rough patch continued with their goalless draw against Schalke this past weekend.
It’s been a rough few games for Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga. Die Schwarzgelben have only won one of their last 5 games in the league, the rest of which were draws against teams that arguably should’ve been fodder to the expected, fiery title charge everyone was expecting from this team in August.
With the pressure mounting even more, many would have expected Dortmund to go to the Veltins Arena this past weekend and take the Revierderby to Schalke at full force. Unfortunately for the Dortmund faithful, the opposite was true. Schalke came out of the gates strong, asking questions of the Dortmund defense constantly, and showing which team wanted the win more.
That being said, Dortmund were extremely lucky to come away from this clash between the Ruhr valley’s biggest rivals with the point that they did. Let us take a look at some of the takeaways this game provided us with.
