Five things we learned from Borussia Dortmund's midseason break

In 2014, Jurgen Klopp's side endured the worst opening half of the Bundesliga season in Borussia Dortmund's history.

Coming off their worst "Hinrunde" (first round) in the Bundesliga, Borussia Dortmund entered the winter break with plenty to work on before the competition resumes Saturday. Here are five observations from their final friendly -- a 1-1 draw with Fortuna Dusseldorf --- before the Bundesliga restarts.

1. Dortmund's defence remains inconsistent

Borussia Dortmund will leave Dusseldorf with mixed feelings. A 1-1 draw will not have provided the confidence boost Jurgen Klopp would have hoped for against...

Relegation-threatened Borussia Dortmund must be wary of history

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

"Unprecedented" is the adjective football journalists like to use when a team's results don't fit existing patterns or firmly established narratives. We know of super powers, new powers, thwarted contenders, also-rans and minnows but not super powers who turn into minnows in the course of a few months. 

Borussia Dortmund's slide down the table to within a single goal of bottom spot in the first half of the season has been such an unprecedented, otherworldly outlier; a "black swan" event", to...

Jurgen Klopp's Borussia Dortmund are currently in the Bundesliga relegation zone after losing 10 of their first 17 games.

With the return of the Bundesliga just over a week away, there are signs for Borussia Dortmund that a turnaround seems imminent, although only when they visit Bayer Leverkusen on Jan. 31 will we truly know.

Of course their rotten luck has not stopped. In the second game of the year Sebastian Kehl's shoulder was separated after an awkward collision with Mats...

Jurgen Klopp not worried about stars leaving Borussia Dortmund

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

Jurgen Klopp does not believe that Borussia Dortmund are facing a mass exodus of their players in the event of missing out on qualification for the Champions League.

Midway through the Bundesliga season, BVB are short of fourth place by 12 points, and following 10 defeats and only 15 points from their opening 17 games of the season are currently spending the winter break in the relegation zone.

Despite their poor form, key players like Mats Hummels, who has been linked with Manchester United, have...
