Sebastian Kehl hopes that Karim Adeyemi can learn from his mistake after he was sent off for picking up two yellow cards against Borussia Mönchengladbach.

Borussia Dortmund came out on top against Borussia Mönchengladbach in the Bundesliga on Saturday afternoon, with Marcel Sabitzer's brace securing a hard-fought 2-1 win. The Black and Yellows' task was made much more difficult by Karim Adeyemi's sending off in the 55th minute, which changed the course of the game.

Adeyemi picked up a yellow card for a poor challenge on the stroke of half-time, before being sent off just ten minutes after the start of the second-half. The red card capped off a frustrating afternoon for the 22 year old, and came just minutes after he thought he had won his side a penalty, only for it to be chalked off after a (very late) VAR check.

Sebastian Kehl said after the game that the red card put the team in a very difficult situation, adding that Adeyemi must now learn from this. "We've already spoken to him about it. Playing with ten players for 30 minutes during such a tight schedule is difficult for a team. Karim knows that. That shouldn't happen to him again," the BVB sporting director told Sky Sport after the game.

Karim Adeyemi now must serve a one-match ban, and will miss next weekend's home game against Bundesliga leaders Bayer Leverkusen as a result. The forward has scored five goals and assisted a further two in 27 appearances across all competitions so far this season.
