1899 Hoffenheim 2-2 Borussia Dortmund

Borussia Dortmund

Borussia Dortmund slipped 12 points adrift of Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich despite battling back from a two-goal deficit to draw at Hoffenheim.

The home side led through forward Sven Schipplock's strike before winger Kevin Volland doubled their advantage.

Dortmund were handed a lifeline when Hoffenheim goalkeeper Jens Grahl dropped a corner to allow Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to convert.

And they earned a deserved draw when right-back Lukasz Piszczek levelled.

But last season's runners-up, who have won just one of their last five matches, missed a host of chances to take all three points.

Poland international Piszczek and substitute Henrikh Mkhitaryan wasted opportunities, before striker Robert Lewandowski's 15-yard shot fizzed past the post after squirming under Grahl.
