Borussia Dortmund vs. Wolfsburg: Final score 2-3, BVB fall eleven points behind Bayern

Lars Baron

Borussia Dortmund are now eleven points behind leaders Bayern Munich after losing at home again.

Borussia Dortmund find themselves eleven points behind in the title race after falling to Wolfsburg 3-2.

BVB started brightly, and Marco Reus scored a great free kick after only six minutes to make it 1-0. Then disaster struck in the 35th minute. The referee judged Marcel Schmelzer to have committed a handball on the goal line to block Diego's shot, and he sent the BVB left back off. Diego stepped up and buried the penalty to make it 1-1.

Wolfsburg doubled their lead minutes later. Diego whipped in a free kick, and Naldo volleyed it past Roman Weidenfeller for the 2-1 halftime lead.

The hosts pulled level in the 61st minute on the second penalty of the day. Simon Kjær fouled Robert Lewandowski in the area and was shown a yellow card for the infraction. Jakub Blaszczykowski scored the spot kick to make it 2-2.

BVB were pressing forward looking for the winner, but they were caught on the break by Wolfsburg. Diego slotted a ball past the BVB defense, and Bas Dost beat Weidenfeller to make it 3-2.
