Hamburg 1-1 Borussia Dortmund

Comments Off

goal
Hamburg were denied a potentially massive step towards Europa League qualification as they were denied a win over Dortmund at the death. Having taken the lead late in the first half, die Rothosen managed to hold onto the result until the closing seconds when Jakub Blaszczykowski leveled for BVB.

Die Rothosen took the game to their visitors from the get-go, and viewers at the Imtech Arena were treated to a very lively contest in which the contestants waged a thrilling technical battle in the midfield. All the game was missing was a goal, but one finally came in the 39th minute as Ruud van Nistelrooy converted a penalty. Even after going down to ten men 12 minutes from the final whistle, the hosts did well to hold onto their lead, but the substitute Blaszczykowski superbly volleyed in the equalizer in the 90th minute.

Dortmund thought they had taken the lead after 34 minutes, but Lucas Barrios’ goal was called back for offside. Instead, the hosts caught the first break after Mats Hummels fouled Mladen Petric inide the penalty area and Van Nistelrooy converted the resulting spot kick. HSV were emboldened by their goal, and Anis Ben-Hatira nearly doubled their lead shortly afterward, but his 25-yard volley was tipped over the bar by Roman Weidenfeller.

On the other end, Mario Goetze made a clever run up the byline before having his cut-back deflected towards goal. The youngster shot from a yard out but Gojko Kacar heroically cleared the ball off the goal line, and the game went into half-time with a level score.

After the break, the hosts appeared comfortable with their lead initially, but Dortmund pushed the tempo of the game into overdrive and had HSV on their heels for the final half hour. Goetze had a clear chance on 50 minutes but tapped his volley over the bar, and he later had a header fall just wide of the right post. The impressive 18-year old then made a mazy run but had his effort denied by an excellent save from Frank Rost. A quarter hour from full time, Barrios hit the underside of the crossbar from close range: it just wasn’t Dortmund’s day.

Space opened up for Hamburg on the break, but their attackers were swiftly closed down, and the only close chance came for Eljero Elia, who brilliantly made space before having his blast parried wide for a corner. After Ben-Hatira was sent off for a second booking on 78 minutes, HSV went into full lock-down mode and did very well to hold onto their lead. However, BVB would not be denied and Blaszczykowski’s late equalizer was a long time coming.

The result sees Hamburg remain seventh, three points behind a potential Europa League berth. Dortmund are still first, having extended their lead over Leverkusen to eight points.

Borussia Dortmund 4-1 Hannover

Comments Off

goal
A superb second half performance saw Borussia Dortmund snap a two-game winless streak with Saturday’s 4-1 win over Hannover.

The wasteful and occasionally sleepy-looking hosts were punished for their inefficiency in front of goal in the 57th minute, when Sergio Pinto played a superb cross that Moa Abdellaoue poked home at the far post. Everything changed, however, as Mario Goetze scored a phenomenal equalizer two minutes later. The 18-year old took on four defenders with a phenomenal solo run and tucked his finish into the lower-right corner.

BVB completed their comeback in the 64th minute as Lucas Barrios headed home a strong finish from Lukasz Piszczek’s cross. Barrios added a third in the 73rd minute as he latched onto Goetze’s through ball and netted from close range. Kevin Grosskreutz then rounded off an emphatic win in the 83rd minute as he finished following a sublime lay-off by Barrios.

The hosts had the better chances in the first half, were wasteful and almost went behind in the 18th minute as Roman Weidenfeller ran out of his goal and was beaten to the ball by Didier Ya Konan. The Ivorian rushed his shot, however, and missed wide from distance. Moments later, Mats Hummels’ inch-perfect long ball found Goetze open on the right flank, but Barrios missed a sitter from eight yards after being superbly set up by the youngster. Robert Lewandowski had a speculative 25-yard effort fizzle narrowly wide, and Neven Subotic headed just over the bar.

Everything changed after the break, and Abdellaoue’s goal perhaps came too early for Hannover, allowing the hosts enough time to find their rhythm. Goetze’s equaliser gave Dortmund a tremendous boost of confidence, and die Roten never looked like scoring after the 1-0.

The result was a massive one not only for the league-leading hosts, who retain their seven-point lead over Leverkusen, but also for Hannover. With today’s loss, Steve Cherundolo and die Roten have slipped to fourth place, one point behind Bayern, who now occupy the Bundesliga’s third Champions League spot.

Borussia Dortmund 1-1 Mainz

Comments Off

goal.com
Borussia Dortmund missed a chance to extend their lead at the top of the Bundesliga standings when they were held to a 1-1 draw at home by Mainz.

Mats Hummels gave BVB the lead after just eight minutes, but Nuri Sahin missed a chance to give the hosts a two-goal cushion when he failed to convert an 18th minute penalty. And they were made to pay a minute from full time when Petar Sliskovic netted the equalizer for Mainz.
It was a scrappy start to the match, and the first real strike on goal came from Mainz forward Andre Schuerrle who fired in a free kick from 30 yards which Roman Weidenfeller pushed away. A moment later Marcel Schmelzer broke free down the left but struck his shot wide of the post.

Dortmund looked the stronger of the two teams, and it was they who had broke the deadlock after Bo Svensson went right through Nuri Sahin and the referee awarded a free kick to Dortmund. Sahin took it himself from around 35 yards out, and his drive seemed covered until Mats Hummels got the slightest of flicks and it was enough to force Christian Wetklo to spill the ball over the line giving Die Borussian the lead.

The momentum was with BVB and they should have doubled the lead, as Lucas Barrios was clean through on goal, but Wetklo took him out in the area and the referee awarded a penalty. Sahin took the spotkick, but he was denied by an excellent save from Wetklo, who made amends for his earlier spill.

The busy Schmelzer then delivered a good cross just before half time and substitute Robert Lewandowski, on for the injured Barrios, should have done better as he headed off target.

The second half started similar to how the first half ended with Dortmund attacking; Jakub Blaszczykowski was unable to keep his strike down and it was always rising over the bar.

Sami Allgui thought he had equalized for Mainz when he had the ball in the back of the net after he pounced on a rebound off Weidenfeller, but he was adjudged to have been offside.

Schmelzer once again found the freedom down the left to cross in, but Lewandoski could not wrap his foot around the ball and fired well over the bar.

Mainz seemed to be at the wrong carnival as the only team playing in front of a carnival atmosphere was Dortmund, who did not allow their guests any clear cut chances.

The pressure was continuous by Dortmund and came close again to increase the lead but Neven Subotic headed wide as he managed to get on the end of a Sahin corner.

The busy Sahin was dictating his team’s attacking play and he cut inside on his left only to fire wide, as he and Schmelzer remained constant thorns in Mainz’s side throughout the game.

With minutes remaining however, Mainz stunned their dominant hosts when they snatched an equaliser. Marcel Risse did well down the right and delivered a great cross; Sliskovic controlled expertly and fired under Weidenfellaer to clinch a vital point against the run of play.

Dortmund have now failed to win their last two games, but remain a commanding ten points over second-place Bayer Leverkusen, who only play Schalke on Sunday. Mainz stay in fifth and in contention for a Europa League spot.

Borussia Dortmund 1-0 Cologne

Comments Off

from sky
Borussia Dortmund pulled 15 points clear at the top of the Bundesliga on Friday with a 1-0 win over Cologne.

Robert Lewandowski helped to see the league leaders to three hard-fought points shortly before the interval.

Second-placed Bayer Leverkusen will get the opportunity to close the gap which separates them from the summit when they entertain Wolfsburg on Saturday.

Dortmund will be pleased to have put further daylight between themselves and the chasing pack after enduring a frustrating night against Cologne.
Visiting keeper Michael Rensing was in inspired form, repelling almost everything the hosts could throw at him.

He made a series of spectacular saves during the first half, helping to keep the game goalless.

Resistance

Cologne’s resistance was finally broken, though, a minute before the break when Lewandowski picked the ball up on the edge of the box and drilled home off the inside of the post.

Dortmund continued to press at the start of the second half and Rensing was forced to parry a stinging effort from Kevin Grosskreutz.

He was then called into action again moments later to deny Neven Subotic.

Remarkably, Cologne should have levelled on 56 minutes when Milivoje Novakovic raced clear, but he shot wide from eight yards out.

Dortmund hit the crossbar twice in the closing stages, through Lucas Barrios and Nuri Sahin, but they were forced to settle for a narrow one-goal success.
