Borussia Dortmund lose ground to Bayern Munich after Hamburg defeat
Borussia Dortmund missed the chance to close the gap on Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich after a shock 3-1 defeat at Hamburg.
Goals from Pierre-Michel Lasogga, Lewis Holtby and an own goal by Mats Hummels left second-placed Dortmund five points off the summit.
Hamburg took the lead in the 19th minute when Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Burki was penalised for bringing down Ivo Ilicevic as he attempted to round him. Burki was booked for the foul before Lasogga coolly dispatched the penalty into his bottom right-hand corner.
Dortmund attempted to hit straight back and Marco Reus' shot was saved by Hamburg goalkeeper Rene Adler and Hummels headed Henrikh Mkhitaryan's cross off-target.
But Hamburg doubled their lead six minutes before the interval when they broke quickly following a Dortmund free kick.
Nicolai Muller fed Holtby and the former Tottenham midfielder made no mistake, firing his shot past Burki.
Dortmund went on the attack after the break in a bid to salvage something from the game.
Marcel Schmelzer twice went close with shots which flew narrowly wide while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Mkhitaryan were also off target with presentable opportunities.
But their chances evaporated in the 70th minute when Germany defender Hummels inadvertently diverted the ball into his own net.
Dortmund did pull one back with six minutes to go, finally breaking through Hamburg's defence when Mkhitaryan and Adnan Januzaj combined to tee up Aubameyang.
They almost grabbed a second but Adler got down well to Gonzalo Castro before Aubameyang had a stoppage-time strike ruled out for offside.
