Auba­mayeng sal­vages point in fran­tic fi­nale

Malta Independent - - SPORT -

Pierre-Em­er­ick Aubameyang had a penalty saved but then res­cued a point for Borus­sia Dort­mund as they set a new club record of 25 home games un­beaten in the Bun­desliga with a 1-1 draw against Hertha Ber­lin.

Dort­mund were far from their best at Sig­nal Iduna Park and wasted chances be­fore Aubameyang's late strike, spar­ing his blushes af­ter he was thwarted by Rune Jarstein from the spot in a match that saw both sides re­duced to 10 men.

With 51 min­utes played Hertha sparked the con­test into life as Valentin Stocker, who was dis­missed in stop­page time, latched onto Vedad Ibi­se­vic's su­perb pass to score his sec­ond of the sea­son.

Stocker's strike was a wake-up call for Dort­mund – who had Emre Mor sent off late on – and they duly re­sponded, with Aubameyang twice go­ing close be­fore see­ing his 75th minute spot kick saved by Rune Jarstein.

He was not to be de­nied, though, as Ous­mane Dem­bele's low cross gave him a sim­ple tapin, se­cur­ing a point and pre­serv­ing Dort­mund's im­pres­sive home record.

Hav­ing had al­most two weeks to dwell on the loss to Bayer Lev­erkusen be­fore the break, Thomas Tuchel's side were sur­pris­ingly slug­gish in front of their vo­cif­er­ous fans.

The lively Chris­tian Pulisic tried in vain to get his side fired up as his deep cross picked out Mor, but the young­ster volleyed high and wide.
