Marco Reus (6.5/10)

Reus scored the equaliser for Borussia Dortmund but found it difficult to cause any problems to the Leipzig defenders other than that. He was very rarely on the ball, thanks in part to the lack of service from those behind him. As always, he contributed defensively and tracked back on a number of occasions.

Donyell Malen (3/10)

Malen’s difficult start to his Borussia Dortmund career continued against Leipzig. He looked like a player bereft of any rhythm or confidence. His decision making was frustrating and uncertain. It looked like at times he did not know what to do with the ball at his feet. And once again, Marco Rose decided to withdraw him with Borussia Dortmund in desperate need of a goal.

Ansgar Knauff (5/10)

Knauff came on at half time and had a few encouraging moments on the left flank. But he wasn’t able to cause any real problems to the Leipzig defenders.

Youssoufa Moukoko (N/R)

Moukoko came on for Malen and looked more dangerous than the Dutchman. He had a shot blocked but wasn’t able to do much more than that.

Dan-Axel Zagadou (N/R)

Zagadou made his first appearance for the Borussia Dortmund senior team since March.

Next. Four players who left Borussia Dortmund too soon. dark

Reinier (N/R)

Reinier found himself in a really good position to set up a chance late on. But his attempted through ball was intercepted.
