Borussia Dortmund completed their third game without win on
Sunday when they were held 1-1 at home by Kaiserslautern after a
superb Olcay Sahan strike gave the visitors a surprise point.
As in the previous two matches, Dortmund scored first only
to see their efforts undone after half-time.
Held 1-1 by Borussia Monchengladbach of last weekend and
beaten 3-2 at home by Olympique Marseille in the Champions
League in midweek, Dortmund went ahead through Shinji Kagawa in
the 27th minute.
Ilkay Gundogan found Kagawa on the edge the area and the
Japan midfielder drilled his effort into the bottom left-hand
Kaiserslautern, 15th in the table, levelled on the hour when
Lukasz Piszczek mis-directed a headed clearance and the ball
fell to Sahan, who fired a dipping volley beyond bemused
goalkeeper Roman Weidenfeller.
The visitors nearly snatched a win when Itay Shechter's
header was stopped on the line by Weidenfeller and, although the
Israeli forced over the rebound, his effort was disallowed for a
foul on the goalkeeper.
Mario Gotze then rattled the bar for Dortmund who were
unable to find the winner despite a bout of late pressure.
