Weidenfeller conceded two early goals Saturday as Dortmund slumped to a 2-1 defeat to Schalke in the Revierderby.

Although losing his clean sheet early in the game, it would be unfair to pin the blame on Weidenfeller. The goalkeeper made two great saves to prevent further goals (including a superb reflex save from a JoŽl Matip header) and was not at fault for Schalke racing into a two goal lead. Rather a frail and incohesive defence was yet again to blame for a third defeat in six games.

Weidenfeller conceded two but looked solid and made some decent saves as Dortmund were held to a 2-2 draw Wednesday against Stuttgart.

Weidenfeller may have lost his clean sheet to an unfancied Stuttgart side but was not to blame for either of the two goals. He made a couple of strong saves including one to prevent the opposition making it 3-0 and commanded his area well. Aside from some poor kicking at times, Weidenfeller has not been not the cause of Dortmund's leaky defence this season. With the imminent return of leader Mats Hummels to the starting line-up, a more robust back-line and clean sheets should follow.

Weidenfeller made one save during Borussia Dortmund's 2-0 Champions League victory over Arsenal on Tuesday.

Weidenfeller is still looking for his first Bundesliga clean sheet this season, but he was barely tested by Arsenal on Tuesday. Despite the Gunners holding 56 percent of the possession, Dortmund outshot them 23 to five, giving Weidenfeller one of his easier shutouts.

Weidenfeller was held out of Borussia Dortmund's 2-0 loss to Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday due to a lack of match fitness, reports.

Deputy keeper Mitch Langerak not only gave up two goals in the match, but the first one came just nine seconds in, breaking the previous record for the fastest goal in Bundesliga history by two seconds. With a performance like that, the club will be desperate to get Weidenfeller back in goal for next weekend's trip to face FC Augsburg.
