A first half goal from Pierre-Michel Lasoggna was enough to sink struggling Dortmund at Westfalenstadion. The first half began a very sloppy display from Dortmund, who were constantly giving away possession in the midfield before a Hamburger counter-attack left them exposed to the break, which provided Lasoggna's first goal this Bundesliga campaign. In the second half possession from both teams was better, and Dortmund began to move the ball with more confidence. The match was marred by six bookings however, and the pace was not enough to beat relegation fighting Hamburger. Dortmund look in need of some pace and better quality on the ball. The first half saw them play without any intensity or purpose. The second half was much better but Hamburger's defense was well organized enough not to surrender the tying goal. Dortmund did enjoy 60% possession and seventeen shots but none to any avail as they Klopp needs more defensive integrity if Dortmund are to recover. 13th in the table and tied third worst in goals conceded, there should have been no excuse dropping all three points to Hamburger, a side that had scored only one goal in their opening six games coming into the match.
