Edin Terzic said that Borussia Dortmund only have themselves to blame after they let a two goal lead slip against Heidenheim on Friday evening.

Borussia Dortmund were held to an embarrassing 2-2 draw by newly promoted side Heidenheim on Friday after they failed to hold on to a two goal lead in the second half. It was an inexplicable performance by the Black and Yellows, who completely lost their way in the second half. And Edin Terzic was critical of his side’s failure to see out the win.

In an interview with DAZN after the game, the Borussia Dortmund head coach said that these setbacks do not happen to top teams. He added that BVB must quickly learn their lessons from this frustrating result.

"“It’s hard to explain it. We’re going to talk about a few things now because we completely let this game slip away from us. In the first half, there were already a few things that we didn’t like, there were ball losses in our own half and then bad passes that led to counter-attacks.”“In the second half, we were lucky once with a handball. After that, we recovered a bit, had three or four chances to score, but then missed them and let things get out of hand. In the end, you have to say that we beat ourselves.”“These are simply things that must not happen to us if we want to have really big ambitions, because these things don’t happen to top teams. For us it happens again and again.”"

It has been a poor start to the season for Borussia Dortmund, who have one just one of their three Bundesliga matches so far. And they were very lucky to get the three points even in that game.

To make things worse, Borussia Dortmund have only faced teams likely to finish in the bottom half of the table so far. Much tougher tests lie ahead for Edin Terzic’s side in the coming weeks, starting with a trip to SC Freiburg after the international break.
