Bundesliga Roundup: Borussia Dortmund drop points yet again

Jadon Sancho of Borussia Dortmund is challenged by (L - R) Stefan Posch and Sebastian Rudy of TSG 1899 Hoffenheim during the Bundesliga match between Borussia Dortmund and TSG Hoffenheim at Signal Iduna Park on February 13, 2021 in Dortmund, Germany.

Borussia Dortmund continued their poor run of form in the Bundesliga, as they could only manage a 2-2 draw at home to TSG Hoffenheim on Matchday 21. 

Edin Terzic’s side took the lead early on through Jadon Sancho, but Munas Dabbur equalised for Hoffenheim soon after. Ihlas Bebou then made it 2-1 in the second half, before Erling Haaland rescued a point for Dortmund.

The result leaves the Black and Yellows in sixth place in the Bundesliga standings, three points behind fourth placed Bayer Leverkusen.

But Augsburg weren’t able to find a late equaliser. Leipzig remain four points behind Bayern Munich, who have a game in hand.

Mainz 05 came from two goals behind to earn a last gasp 2-2 draw away to Bayer Leverkusen. Goals from Lucas Alario and Patrik Schick had Leverkusen two goals to the good with just two minutes of normal time remaining. 

But Robert-Nesta Glatzel and Kevin Stöger scored in quick succession to secure an unlikely point for the relegation battlers.

Hertha Berlin ended a run of four defeats in a row by earning a come from behind 1-1 draw away to VfB Stuttgart. 17 year old Luca Netz scored the equaliser for the Berliners after SaÅ¡a Kalajdžic had given the home side the lead.
