Borussia Dortmund were unable to bounce back from last week's defeat after drawing 1-1 with Eintracht Frankfurt in the Bundesliga on Saturday evening.
Dortmund, who looked to bounce back from last week’s defeat at home to FC Koln, missed Erling Braut Haaland and started Marco Reus on the bench with Giovanni Reyna leading the line.
The Black and Yellow were off to a stuttering start, as Daichi Kamada combined with a delivery from Martin Hinteregger to find the bottom-corner nine minutes in with a left-footed strike in the area.
Kamada looked to switch roles minutes later after playing in Filip Kostic from a tight angle, but the latter failed to make the supply count in his side’s favour.
Eintracht were soon on the back-foot, as Jadon Sancho along with Reyna launched numerous attempts from all angles around the final third.
Dortmund made a change at the start of the second half in Youssoufa Moukoko, who came on for fellow attacker Mahmoud Dahoud.
The Black and Yellow didn’t relent towards the equaliser minutes in with attempts from Julian Brandt and Emre Can inside the area, but the hosts cleared away.
Eintracht’s resistance were broken close to the midway point in the second half when a right-footed shot from Reyna off a pass from Sancho beat Kevin Trapp.
Brandt pushed to give his side the lead before the last 20 minutes from a difficult situation on the right-side, but missed the intended target.
Substitute Moukoko also went close to the winner minutes later following a left-footed shot outside the area from a supply by Mateu Morey, but Trapp saved.
The Black and Yellow maintained the same confidence close to the fulltime with Reyna, Moukoko and Dan-Axel Zagadou pressurizing the hosts, but nothing materialised as the match ended.
