Borussia Dortmund's Bundesliga revival continues

Published Add your comment

Borussia Dortmund look to have turned the corner as they notched up their fourth straight victory in the Bundesliga against Schalke 04.

The 2012 Champions League finalists have had an indifferent season so far and were fighting to avoid relegation rather than challenging Bayern Munich for the title when the Christmas break kicked in.

Last year's runners-up looked set to continue in the same desperate vein after losing 1-0 to Augsburg in their first Bundesliga game of 2015. After the shock defeat, their 11th of the season, Roman Weidenfeller and Mats Hummels tried to calm the fans down who started to fear that relegation was on the cards.

Finding their feet

Since that night Dortmund have finally found their feet, scoring 13 goals in just four games, conceding just four.

The transformation in form has coincided with the return of Marco Reus, who recently signed a contract extension, scoring in each of their streak of wins.

Now sitting in mid-table, Jurgen Klopp and his men will be looking to put the first half of the season behind them and end the season really strongly.

They are now only eight points behind fourth-placed Bayer Leverkusen. However, Champions League qualification may only be a possibility should they lift the trophy this season.

Champions League chances

With potentially no Champions League football next season the club could still see a mass exodus of players and maybe even the manager as the bigger clubs around Europe will be laying in wait.

The aim for the remainder of the season will be about consolidating their place in the top 10 and getting European football next season, even if it means the Europa League.
