Borussia Dortmund

Dortmund begin their 2015 relegation battle with a draw vs. Leverkusen

Schalke secured a 1-0 win against Hannover despite losing Klaas-Jan Huntelaar to a red card, while Borussia Dortmund slipped to the cellar of the Bundesliga with a 0-0 draw at Leverkusen.

Borussia Dortmund sit last in the Bundesliga after the first matchday of 2015. After SC Freiburg beat Eintracht Frankfurt 4-1, only a win would have gotten BVB back from last place. Easier said than done against a team of the calibre of Bayer Leverkusen.

It was a well-earned point in a tie that wasn't one for the football purists. Last season's vice-champions had the worst pass-completion rate since data began to be recorded with 46 percent. Admittedly, not nice to watch, yet intentional as Nuri...

Borussia Dortmund's crisis isn't a crisis at all, and stats prove they will rebound

Borussia Dortmund head coach Jurgen Klopp is looking forward to the second half of the Bundesliga season.

Everyone says Borussia Dortmund are in crisis. Less than two years removed from making the Champions League final and less than three years removed from winning the Bundesliga, BVB have fallen into the relegation zone. With the league resuming this weekend after its annual winter break, Dortmund sit 17th, a full 30 points behind first-place Bayern Munich.

Proposed reasons for Dortmund's slide have ranged from injuries to lack of belief to the league catching on to Jurgen Klopp's tricks. Other...

U.S. starlet Christian Pulisic eager to prove himself at Borussia Dortmund

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol discusses the 25 most important players for the United States, which includes a few younger players such as Julian Green.

When it comes to succeeding at an overseas club, the assimilation game that U.S. prospects must play is an enigma, one that might very well have stumped famed cryptologist Alan Turing. Yet for U.S. under-17 international Christian Pulisic, it's a code that he's determined to crack.

It's a challenge that is complex and full of subtlety. There is an entire culture to adapt to, both in terms of playing and everyday life. The game becomes a job, and not just a passion. Individual clubs and coaches...

The fightback starts here as Borussia Dortmund prepare for Leverkusen

Borussia Dortmund defender Mats Hummels believes a lack of confidence is behind his club's Bundesliga downfall.

Finally, the Bundesliga returns from its winter slumber and Borussia Dortmund have the chance to get out of the relegation zone. For it to happen on the first day back, they must get past a dangerous Bayer Leverkusen, who are no lightweight and currently lie third in the Bundesliga.

Dortmund will have to prove they've done their homework over the winter break and show everyone they are a competitive side again. Coaching staff and the players bemoaned a lack of fitness before the league's midseason...

Ex-Dortmund star Lucas Barrios on the road to revival with Montpellier

Thanks to Lucas Barrios' excellent form, Montpellier are sitting sixth in Ligue 1 and starting to dream of European qualification.

Back in January 2011, when Gonzalo Higuain was forced to undergo back surgery, Jose Mourinho was urgently looking for a striker to bolster his Real Madrid squad. "Karim Benzema alone is not enough," Mourinho claimed, and Lucas Barrios was his first choice to replace the Argentinian.

Little wonder. "The Panther," as Barrios has been known since his youth, was one of the hottest names in Europe, scoring at will for Borussia Dortmund, with Arsenal and Manchester City also reported to be following him...

Man United, Dortmund and Japan all responsible in the decline of Kagawa

Penalty heartbreak for Japan after the United Arab Emirates' Ismail Ahmed sealed one of the biggest shocks in the tournament's history.

As he sank to his knees on the Sydney turf following his missed penalty for Japan against the United Arab Emirates in the quarterfinal of the 2015 Asian Cup, Shinji Kagawa's face wore a look of confusion and anguish. Japan had dominated but had been eliminated.

For the player, it goes a little deeper than that. The Samurai Blue had won the tournament four years ago but Kagawa left at the semifinal stage thanks to a broken metatarsal. This time, he played until the bitter end but exited even earlier.
