Nevan Subotic feels while Dortmund got out to an early lead, Eintracht Frankfurt were clinical in the second half.

DORTMUND, Germany -- Before any of the journalists could nag Peter Bosz with their questions at Monday's news conference ahead of Tuesday's cup tie against third-tier side FC Magdeburg, press officer Sascha Fligge himself asked the Borussia Dortmund manager about the personnel situation, knowing the 53-year-old had positive news to announce.

"[Lukasz] Piszczek and Omer Toprak are unavailable," Bosz said, following up with: "[Sokratis] Papastathopoulos will return after his suspension, and if things...

Borussia Dortmund continue to serve up drama vs. Eintracht Frankfurt

Nuri Sahin may have scored, but Borussia Dortmund didn't have much else to celebrate on Saturday.

A home defeat to RB Leipzig last week evidently had a knock-on effect for Borussia Dortmund. After a horrendous Champions League draw against Apoel Nicosia, Peter Bosz's men followed it up by squandering a two-goal lead against Eintracht Frankfurt.

After his blunder in midweek, Roman Burki followed up by giving away a silly penalty and Dortmund were rattled by a string of Frankfurt chances late in the second half, before Makoto Hasebe's goal-line clearance stopped what would have been Nuri Sahin's...

Dortmund must overcome stale play and fatigue to right ship vs. Frankfurt

Peter Bosz discussed Borussia Dortmund's disappointing week having lost to RB Leipzig and drawn against APOEL Nicosia in the Champions League.

DORTMUND, Germany -- "A win [in Frankfurt] would be good for the table and for the atmosphere," Borussia Dortmund manager Peter Bosz said at Friday's news conference ahead of Saturday's game. Yes, the atmosphere surrounding Dortmund has become somewhat gloomy after only one win in four games across competitions.

The season of a football club -- or any sports team to be true -- often is similar to the mood swings of a teenager. Just weeks ago, the Black and Yellows were celebrated for resounding...

Bayern back on track, Leipzig fancy a European run, Dortmund's costly draw

Despite a win over Celtic, Jupp Heynckes says Bayern still left much to be desired both offensively and defensively.

Matchday 3 at last brought the first wins for the German contingent in the Champions League and underlined the recent return to form of RB Leipzig and FC Bayern Munich. For Borussia Dortmund, however, the 1-1 draw at APOEL has had the opposite effect: the Black and Yellows are beginning to wonder about their football's true quality in light of four unconvincing games (three defeats, one narrow win at Augsburg) on the trot.
