Borussia Dortmund are in a crisis, but don't expect Jurgen Klopp to leave yet

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti doesn't think Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp is attracted to the glitz of the Premier League.

Performances and results don't always go together in football, as Bayern Munich experienced (with 10 men) in their 3-2 defeat at Manchester City on Tuesday. Borussia Dortmund can testify to another paradox: Even when there's very little to play for, you can still lose big.

Wednesday night's trip to the Emirates was supposed to be a "holiday" (according to Jurgen Klopp) from domestic, wrong-end-of-the-table chores. Midweek escapism had worked well for BVB before -- they had won all four of their...

Dortmund feel the significance of Marco Reus' absence again

After a 1-0 defeat to Arsenal in the UEFA Champions League, Dortmund coach Juergen Klopp says his team just need to find a way to win again.

Borussia Dortmund lost 2-0 to Arsenal in the Champions League on Wednesday, yet remain atop the group. It was the first game without injured star Marco Reus, and already his absence is telling. The result won't worry BVB fans too much, as a draw at home against Anderlecht should still be enough to win the group. Yet the performance left a lot to wish for.

It took Arsenal no longer than 73 seconds to brand their superiority onto the match. Five Dortmund players failed to stop Yaya Sanogo and Santi...

Arsenal claim morale-boosting win vs. Borussia Dortmund

Yaya Sanogo scored an early goal and Alexis Sanchez added another in the second half as the Gunners cruised to a 2-nil win over Borussia Dortmund.

LONDON -- A trio of observations on Arsenal's 2-0 win versus Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League.

1. Gunners find cheer

After Alexis Sanchez scored Arsenal's second goal, a gleeful Arsene Wenger made his way to the touchline. The Gunners' two goal scorers against Borussia Dortmund were both vindicators: Yaya Sanogo's first for the club is hoped to be the first of many, while Sanchez has been worth every penny of the 35 million pounds paid for him.

Bright spots in a bad spell, these were...

Pressure is off for Borussia Dortmund heading into Arsenal tie

A point against Borussia Dortmund will ensure Arsenal's qualification for the knock-out phase of the UEFA Champions League.

It's Game 1 for Borussia Dortmund after the blow of Marco Reus' right ankle ligament injury: They will have to learn to win without their star player for the rest of 2014. The Black and Yellows can start in the Champions League against Arsenal on Wednesday, where they only need a draw to seal their group win. Their five-point lead over the second-place Gunners means BVB will still be in pole position -- even if they lose -- so the pressure is off.

So far the Champions League has been an oasis in...

Champions League: English clubs reach last chance saloon

Liverpool travel to Bulgaria to take on a Ludogorets side who are in fine form at home this season.

As Manchester City and Liverpool prepare for a make-or-break week in the Champions League, here are five points to consider ahead of the action on Tuesday and Wednesday:

Man City enter last chance saloon

Manchester City appear to have developed a debilitating mental block as they continually fail to live up to their billing in the Champions League, with manager Manuel Pellegrini under increasing pressure to find a rapid solution to their European woes as he prepares for the daunting visit of Bayern...

Reus injury adds to Dortmund despair in draw with Paderborn

The injury bug has struck Borussia Dortmund again, with Marco Reus forced to leave Saturday's 2-2 draw against Paderborn.
The injury bug has struck Borussia Dortmund again, with Marco Reus forced to leave Saturday's 2-2 draw against Paderborn.

Borussia Dortmund's crisis can't be stopped, it seems. It's another weekend to forget for the black and yellows, after they threw away a 2-0 lead in a match that ended 2-2 against Paderborn and saw the loss of Marco Reus to another ankle injury.

The situation gets more worrying with every match, and though Dortmund gained a point on the Champions League places, it's still a big opportunity fluffed.

For manager Jurgen Klopp, the impression of Reus' injury outweighed the bitter result, and in hindsight,...
