Dortmund and Leverkusen held

Borussia Dortmund were held to a 1-1 draw by Borussia Monchengladbach in the Bundesliga at the Borussia Park Stadion on Sunday.

Mario Gotze gave the visitors the lead from the penalty spot in the 11th minute, but a first professional goal from Amin Younes earned the Foals a point midway through the second half.

The result sees Dortmund take a small slice out of Bayern Munich's advantage at the top of the Bundesliga, but they are still trailling by 17 points.

Meanwhile, new Greuther Furth coach Ludwig Preis picked up a point from his first match in charge as the league's bottom team held third-placed Bayer Leverkusen to a goalless draw.

The Bavarians showed a degree of confidence and belief that they had rarely displayed all season, and they had arguably the better chances to win the match.

Leverkusen did not know what had hit them and what seemed like an easy three points on paper turned into a frustrating battle to get just a point.
