Dortmund stumble at Hertha with Aubameyang left out again
Third-placed Borussia Dortmund were held 1-1 at Hertha Berlin in the Bundesliga on Friday for their second draw in a row without leading striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. The Gabon international, with 13 league goals this season, was suspended for last week's 0-0 draw with VfL Wolfsburg after failing to show up for a team meeting the day before. Dortmund coach Peter Stoeger on Thursday indicated the 28-year-old would be in the squad but the forward was surprisingly left out with club officials saying he was not focused enough. Aubameyang, last season's Bundesliga top scorer, has been linked with a move to Arsenal in the January transfer window. His absence was again clearly evident as Dortmund had few chances in a subdued first half before Davie Selke put Hertha ahead seconds after the restart. Dortmund levelled by taking advantage of a defensive error when Shinji Kagawa headed in at the far post in the 71st. The visitors could have snatched a late winner but Sancho curled his shot wide and Alexander Isak fired against the bar. Dortmund have 30 points and trail Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich who have 44 before they host Werder Bremen on Sunday. Second-placed Leipzig on 31 visit Freiburg on Saturday. RESULT: Hertha Berlin 1 (Selke 46) Borussia Dortmund 1 (Kagawa 71) German Bundesliga table after Friday's match (played, won, drawn, lost, goals for, goals against, points): Bayern Munich           18 14  2  2 40 12 44 RB Leipzig              18  9  4  5 30 26 31 Borussia Dortmund       19  8  6  5 40 25 30 Schalke 04              18  8  6  4 29 24 30 Bayer Leverkusen        18  7  7  4 35 26 28 Bor.
