BERLIN (AFP) – Borussia Dortmund lost again on Sunday to remain bottom of the Bundesliga while VfL Wolfsburg trimmed Bayern Munich’s lead to seven points with a 1-0 win over Borussia Moenchengladbach.
Wolves’ centre-back Robin Knoche netted what proved to be the 12th-minute winner at home to Gladbach following a goalmouth scramble to keep Wolves second in the table.
The defeat sees Gladbach drop to fifth as Lucien Favre’s side suffered their third straight defeat, despite having set a new club record of 18 matches unbeaten at the start of the season.
Jurgen Klopp’s Dortmund remain at the foot of the table after losing 2-0 at Eintracht Frankfurt as last season’s runners-up continue to suffer the worst start to a league season in the club’s history.
Frankfurt captain Alexander Meier claimed his eighth goal of the season to become the league’s top scorer when he fired home with five minutes gone after team-mate Marco Russ split the Dortmund defence with a long-range pass.
