Gio Reyna came on as a late substitute but was unable to save Dortmund as they threw away their advantage atop the Bundesliga on Friday.
  • Reyna a late sub
  • Dortmund settle for 1-1 draw
  • Bayern could go back atop the league this weekend

WHAT HAPPENED? Dortmund entered the day with a one-point lead over Bayern Munich atop the German league, but were only able to extend that advantage by one point due to a draw with VfL Bochum.

Dortmund conceded a goal to Anthony Losilla just five minutes in, although Karim Adeyemi answered just two minutes later with an equalizer. However, Dortmund couldn't find a second as Bayern will now once again control their own destiny atop the league.
