Borussia Dortmund were dealt a huge blow in their hopes of qualifying for next season’s Champions League when they lost 2-1 to Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday.

Edin Terzic’s side went into the game in fifth place, knowing anything but all three points would keep Frankfurt in fourth.

As a result, Dortmund now sit seven points of the Champions League spot, following a game in which a number of key players struggled to perform.

Erling Haaland: 6.6

Off the back of a week of remarkable speculation surrounding the player, Saturday’s clash was an opportunity for Erling Haaland to prove that while his agent and father were jet setting around Europe, he remained focussed on the task at hand.

However, over the course of the game, Haaland wore the look of a frustrated player that struggled to comprehend the performances of his colleagues. The Norwegian striker often looked isolated from the rest of his team and lacked a huge amount of service.

That’s not to say Haaland was entirely faultless in the performance. The striker missed at least two clear chances in the first half and fired one solo effort well wide in the second. He, like Dortmund, simply wasn’t good enough.

Nico Schulz: 6.3

One of the biggest issues with Dortmund this season is that the team have struggled to nail down regular full-backs beyond the consistent performances of Raphael Guerreiro on the left flank.

Unfortunately for Terzic and his side, Saturday’s defeat to Frankfurt was yet another example of the club’s woes in that position. Despite a promising star to the match, Dortmund were then cut down to size after just 11 minutes when a Frankfurt cross found the unsuspecting head of Nico Schulz, which then saw the ball loop over the goalkeeper and into the back of the net.

If Dortmund fans were already unconvinced by Schulz, they certainly will be after this performance.

⭐ Andre Silva: 7.4

While Haaland may not have been at his very best for Dortmund on Saturday, one striker that continued his impressive run of form was Frankfurt talisman Andre Silva.

Silva has been nothing short of remarkable in the Bundesliga this season and after posing a constant threat throughout the match, the Portuguese striker got his reward in the 87th minute when he met a fantastic from Filip Kostic with a header.

The goal now means that Silva has bagged 23 goals in just 27 games for Frankfurt this season.
