Borussia Dortmund were held to their third league draw in a row on Saturday as BVB shared the spoils with Freiburg at Schwarzwald-Stadion.

Dortmund were leading 2-1 towards the end, but were forced to settle for a point after Manuel Akanji scored an own goal in the 90th minute.

"The 2-2 is really bitter. At the moment it reflects the way we're playing, the fact we're not performing convincingly. So we can hardly be surprised that we're heading home with a point, which is far too little. Going ahead doesn't give us as much confidence as it usually does," Dortmund captain Marco Reus said after the game, as quoted by the club.

"I hope the international break does us good in terms of clearing our heads, so that we can go into the next part of the season with fresh momentum. Then the fixtures will be coming thick and fast; we need to be ready and to perform differently, especially when we take the lead," he added.

Reus and Dortmund sit seventh in the Bundesliga table ahead of Sunday's Bundesliga fixtures.
