Weidenfeller failed to keep a clean sheet and was at fault for the first goal Tuesday as Dortmund slipped to a 2-1 Champions League defeat to Juventus.

Weidenfeller hasn't been in fantastic form of late and has now conceded six in three games. He didn't look solid at all on Tuesday and particularly could have done better for Juventus' opener. The goalkeeper clumsily spilled opponent striker Alvaro Morata's effort into the path of Carlos Tevez for the Argentine to score with an easy tap-in. Weidenfeller may well have Dortmund number two Mitchell Langerak knocking on the door for his place soon if his form doesn't improve quickly.

Weidenfeller didn't manage to keep a clean sheet Friday in Dortmund's 3-2 win over Stuttgart.

Weidenfeller has now conceded four goals in two games but that should go under the radar as both matches have ended in wins. Weidenfeller wasn't really at fault for either goal against Stuttgart, although he failed to make the save despite guessing the right direction for the penalty kick. Dortmund's number one will be looking for a clean sheet next time out after a couple of high-scoring games.

Weidenfeller conceded two goals but still ended up on the winning side as Dortmund came back to beat Mainz 4-2 Friday.

A miscommunication between Weidenfeller and Neven Subotic after just 50 seconds allowed Mainz's Elkin Soto to fire into an empty net. Fortunately he managed to recover from that early set-back and looked solid, despite conceding another goal in the second half. It wasn't the most convincing of goalkeeping displays but Weidenfeller should still be good to hold on to his first team place.

Weidenfeller kept a clean sheet Saturday in a comfortable 3-0 win for Dortmund against Freiburg.

Weidenfeller barely had a save to make thanks to a very solid defensive line. He had to be sharp to keep out Freiburg's Oliver Sorg in the first half but in truth rarely looked trouble. That's now two clean sheets in three for Weidenfeller since regaining his first team spot from Mitchell Langerak.

Weidenfeller was solid in goal but couldn't prevent Dortmund slipping to a 1-0 home defeat Wednesday to Augsburg.

Weienfeller remained in the team with Mitchell Langerak yet to return to the squad. The German international had little exceptional to do and was left exposed by clumsy defending for the goal.

Weidenfeller kept a clean sheet Saturday in his first competitive game since Nov. 30, as Dortmund drew 0-0 at Bayer Leverkusen.

Weidenfeller was back in the first team after having lost his place to Mitchell Langerak prior to the winter break. However Langerak is currently in Australia for the Asian Cup and so this gave Weidenfeller the opportunity to regain his spot. He only needed to make a few routine saves against Leverkusen but had Mats Hummels to thank in the first half when the defender cleared off the line. Jurgen Klopp may well stick with Weidenfeller next time out following his clean sheet, particularly considering Dortmund's woeful defensive record this season.

Weidenfeller failed to keep a clean sheet as Dortmund lost 2-0 to Eintracht Frankfurt in the Bundesliga Sunday.

Weidenfeller wasn't kept particularly busy but conceded two goals following defensive errors. He lost his clean sheet after just four minutes following a mix-up between Neven Subotic and Matthias Ginter and then was victim of the latter's poor pass back to give Frankfurt's Haris Seferović an open goal. It was an average display by Weidenfeller who will be desperate for the return of the likes of Mats Hummels to provide much needed strength to a struggling defense.

Weidenfeller performed well and made a number of decent stops despite conceding two goals Saturday in Dortmund's 2-2 tie with SC Paderborn.

Weidenfeller kept his first Bundesliga clean sheet of the season prior to the international break and until 60 minutes on Saturday it looked like he was going to double that figure in Paderborn. With his side ahead 1-0, Weidenfeller made an excellent stop from Paderborn's Süleyman Koc but could do nothing about the subsequent sloppy defending that allowed the opposition to claw their way back into the game. Weidenfeller seems to be regaining his early season form and expect him to add to his clean sheet tally in upcoming games.
