Mats Hummels won two German Bundesliga titles, one German Cup and two German Super Cup titles during his first spell as a Borussia Dortmund player.

German Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund have themselves to blame after they were held to a goalless draw by Barcelona in their opening game of Group F in this season’s Champions League.

Borussia Dortmund created a lot of chances against the Spanish champions but were unable to find the back of the net due to poor finishing on the part of their strikers as well as the superb goalkeeping from Barcelona shot-stopper Marc Andre Ter Stegen.

Marco Reus had the best chance of the first half for Borussia Dortmund only for him to be denied by the aforementioned Ter Stegen.

German international Reus was also denied by his compatriot Ter Stegen after he was presented with the best chance of the game from the penalty spot.

Nelson Semedo was penalised for stamping on the foot of Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho in the Barcelona box but Marco Reus could not make it count after his spot kick was saved by Marc Andre Ter Stegen.

The Barcelona goalkeeper showed his quality to further underline his push for the number one goalkeeper position with the German national team.

He is the second choice goalkeeper for Germany and the Barcelona shot stopper has been in a feud with first choice Manuel Neuer of Bayern Munich as he thinks he merits the number one spot ahead of him.

The penalty save won’t have done his chances of being the first choice goalkeeper for Germany any harm.

He has saved four of the last six penalties faced.

Julian Weigl

German Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund have reportedly set an asking price for one of their players.

Thorgan Hazard is the junior brother of new Real Madrid signing Eden Hazard and he joined Dortmund from fellow German Bundesliga club Borussia Moenchengladbach.

Paco Alcacer spent last season on loan at Dortmund at Barcelona and the deal has been permanent.

German international left-back Nico Schulz joined from German Bundesliga club TSG Hoffenheim, while Julian Brandt also signed for Dortmund from fellow German Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen.

Centre back Mats Hummels returned to Borussia Dortmund from rivals Bayern Munich for a club-record €38m and he’s almost certain to relegate Julian Weigl back to the Dortmund bench.
