Borussia Dortmund had an evening to forget in Berlin, as they ended their year with a 3-2 defeat to Hertha BSC.

Disaster struck for Borussia Dortmund on Saturday evening, as Hertha Berlin came from behind to hand them a 3-2 defeat. The result leaves Marco Rose’s side nine points behind Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga standings going into the winter break. And it is fair to say that their hopes of winning the Bundesliga title this season are now very slim, if not all but over.

Julian Brandt and Steffen Tigges were on target for Borussia Dortmund, but the former also played a part in two of Hertha’s three goals. It was a poor performance from the Black and Yellows, who go into the winter break on the back of a hinrunde to forget.

Here are our player ratings for the Borussia Dortmund players from their 3-2 defeat to Hertha BSC.

Marwin Hitz (4.5/10)

Hitz replaced Gregor Kobel in the Borussia Dortmund goal and made a really good save to deny Ekkelenkamp early on. But that was as good as it got for him. His positioning before Hertha’s equaliser was really poor and he should have done a better job of saving that.
