Dortmund drops vital points in Augsburg draw

Wednesday, February 28, 2018

BERLIN - Borussia Dortmund's pursuit of a Champions League place suffered a setback yesterday after Augsburg secured a 1-1 draw in the Bundesliga thanks to defender Kevin Danso's 73rd minute equaliser.

Marco Reus put Dortmund ahead in the 16th minute of a first half Dortmund largely dominated before being second best to Augsburg for much of the second half.

Second-placed Dortmund, 19 points behind runaway leaders Bayern Munich, could ill afford to drop points in a tight race for Champions League places.

With 41 points from 24 matches, they are one point ahead of Schalke 04, two in front of Eintracht Frankfurt and three clear of Bayer Leverkusen and RB Leipzig with 10 matches to go. Bayern were held 0-0 at home by Hertha Berlin on Saturday.

"We're disappointed with the performance today. We had a great chance to put some distance between us and the other sides," said Dortmund's German international forward Andre Schuerrle.
