Dortmund Stutter Against Dramstadt

Despite a brace from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Borussia Dortmund played to a 2-2 draw against Darmstadt 98 in a German Bundesliga match at the Signal Iduna Park on Sunday.

The draw for Dortmund is their second of the league season and sees them in second place on the table with 17 points from seven games, four points adrift of leaders Bayern Munich.

The draw for Darmstadt is their fourth of the season and sees them on ten points in ninth place on the table.

Darmstadt started the better of the two teams and opened the scoring in the 17th minute when a superb volley from Marcel Heller after latching onto a pass from Jerome Gondorf found the corner of the net, 1-0.

Dortmund took control of the game after that, but could not pull a goal back before the half time break.

The second half saw the home side continue to dominate matters and they finally made their pressure tell in the 63rd minute when a through ball from Matthias Ginter put Aubameyang through on goal and he made no mistake with just the keeper to beat, 1-1.

Aubameyang completed his brace in the 71st minute when he turned home a pin-pint from pass Adnan Januzaj, 2-1.

Just as Dortmund looked to have secured the three points, Aytac Sulu rescued a share of the spoils for Dramstadt with an equalising goal in the 91st minute, 2-2.

In the earlier Bundesliga match on Sunday, Eintracht Frankfurt and Hertha Berlin played to a 1-1 draw at the Commerzbank-Arena.

Alexander Meier opened the scoring for Frankfurt in the 22nd minute before a late goal in the 82nd minute from Vladimir Darida handed Berlin a share of the spoils.

The result sees Frankfurt in 11th place on the table with nine points while Berlin are in sixth place with 11 points.
