DBasia.news –  Borussia Dortmund in their first home game of the season were held to a 2-2 draw by Werder Bremen. Dortmund failed to achieve maximum points in the German League match at home at Signal Iduna Park, Sunday (9/29) AM.

These results have scattered Dortmund in seventh place standings with 11 points, while Bremen is still ranked tenth with seven points.

The Yellow-Black Team still had several opportunities through Jadon Sancho and Thorgan Hazard. However, Reus were able to break down Bremen’s goal to bring Dortmund to close the first round with a one goal advantage.

Dortmund performed better at the start of the second half, but Bremen were lucky as goalkeeper, Jiri Pavlenka, performed well and was able to thwart five opportunities that threatened his goal.

They had the last chance from substitute, Paco Alcacer, but he was unable to maximize the good passes from Sancho and Julian Brandt.
