Wasteful Borussia Dortmund were held at home by Wolfsburg after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was dropped for disciplinary reasons.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s killer instinct in front of goal was sorely missed by Borussia Dortmund as they somehow failed to make the most of their chances in a 0-0 draw with struggling Wolfsburg on Sunday.
Aubameyang was left out by coach Peter Stoger after failing to attend a team meeting on Saturday and, although Dortmund posed a constant threat in attack, they spurned a host of opportunities and ultimately failed to claim the victory that would have moved them up to second in the Bundesliga. Andriy Yarmolenko looked particularly keen to step up in Aubameyang’s absence and the Ukrainian caused Wolfsburg no end of problems, but he was arguably guilty of the two worst misses – one in each half.
Alexander Isak – given his first start in Aubameyang’s place – went closest in the first period, though, blasting against the right-hand post just prior to half-time.
Seventeen-year-old debutant Jadon Sancho – an August arrival from Manchester City – then struck the opposite upright early in the second half, as Dortmund’s frustration continued to increase.
