Sebastian Kehl believes that Borussia Dortmund are still firmly in the hunt to win the Bundesliga title this season despite missing the opportunity to close the gap to Bayern Munich last weekend.

Borussia Dortmund missed a golden opportunity to go level on points with title rivals Bayern Munich last weekend as they were held to a 3-3 draw by 10-man Stuttgart. The Black and Yellows let a two goal lead slip before conceding a 97th minute equaliser.

BVB now find themselves two points behind the Bavarians with six games to go in the Bundesliga season. But Sebastian Kehl is not giving up on their title hopes. In an interview with Ruhr Nachrichten, the Borussia Dortmund sporting director said that it will be important for them to now show a reaction this weekend as they go up against Eintracht Frankfurt.

"“We want to be German champions! We are only two points behind Bayern Munich. We haven’t lost sight of our goal of winning the title. We’re closer than we’ve been at this point of the season in many years.”“I am convinced that we have the necessary quality. We now need a very good week of training, a bit of anger, some greed, the absolute desire to defend our goal together and the support of our fans. With this combination, anything is possible.”“The championship is not in our own hands because we can no longer play our direct rivals. But we want to keep the pressure up. The only way to do that is to win a series of matches. And we want to start that on Saturday against Eintracht Frankfurt.”"

Borussia Dortmund have an excellent record at home this season, and four of their remaining six games are set to take place at the Signal Iduna Park. This will give Edin Terzic’s side some encouragement as they look to win the Bundesliga title for the first time in 11 years.

Bayern Munich are going through a bit of a rough patch at the moment. But they hold a two point lead and also have a vastly superior goal difference. For Borussia Dortmund to win the Bundesliga title, they must hope for Thomas Tuchel’s side to slip up in at least one of their remaining six matches.
