Weidenfeller didn't manage to keep a clean sheet Saturday as Dortmund ran out 3-2 winners over Hannover.

Depsite conceding two at Hannover, Weidenfeller could do little about either goal. The first was down to some questionable defending while the second was an unstoppable long-range strike. The goalkeeper also did well to deny Joselu scoring an unlikely equalizer at the death.

Weidenfeller kept a third consecutive clean sheet as Dortmund tied 0-0 Saturday with FC Köln.

Weidenfeller had to be called into action on numerous occasions as Dortmund could only manage a point at home to Köln. His most important contributions were actually both in the first five minutes, the goalkeeper making smart saves from Deyverson and Anthony Ujah. Weidenfeller will now be looking to keep a fourth straight clean sheet to prevent Juventus scoring a crucial Champions League away goal on Wednesday.

Weidenfeller kept a second consecutive clean sheet Saturday as Dortmund tied 0-0 with Hamburg.

Weidenfeller added to the clean sheet he got at Schalke with an assured display in Hamburg. He had to be called into action a couple of times, making a good save from a Mohmaed Gouaida free-kick in the first half and then from a Zoltan Stieber effort in the second. Weidenfeller may well extend his clean sheet streak in a very winnable-looking next fixture against FC Köln.

Weidenfeller got a clean sheet Saturday as Dortmund beat Schalke 3-0.

Weidenfeller had little to do as Dortmund swept aside Schalke with a superb attacking display. The opponents offered little threat in front of goal and he kept a clean sheet as a result.

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.
