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.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

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.

Weidenfeller kept his first Bundesliga clean sheet of the season as Dortmund beat Borussia Moenchengladbach 1-0 Sunday.

It was incredibly quiet night for Dortmund's number one who didn't have to make a save all game. Moenchengladbach were totally dominated from start to finish and Weidenfeller picked up the easiest clean sheet he will probably ever get.

Weidenfeller made a series of excellent stops as Dortmund fell to a 2-1 loss against Bayern Munich Saturday.

Having been rather out of form lately, Weidenfeller stepped up his performance with a superb goalkeeping display against Bayern Munich. He saved from Arjen Robben in the first half, denied both a Thomas Müller strike and header, and saved excellently with his feet when Robert Lewandowski looked certain to score. The frustration could be seen on Weidenfeller's face as Robben sent him the wrong way for the winning penalty late on as despite his heroics Dortmund came away with nothing.

Weidenfeller conceded from a free-kick and was far from convincing as Dortmund fell to another loss Saturday 1-0 against Hannover.

Weidenfeller has become shaky of late, just when the back four have started to look more solid. He did make fine second half saves from Jose Joselu and Hiroshi Kiyotake but should have done better to keep out the latter's free-kick for the goal. Weidenfeller is out of sorts and doesn't look like the obvious number one that he did a few games ago.

Weidenfeller kept a clean sheet but ultimately had little to do as Dortmund overcame Galatasaray 4-0 in the Champions League Wednesday,

After Weidenfeller's poor performance against FC Köln Saturday, the goalkeeper was still visibly a bit shaky. He made a mess of some early crosses but as he relaxed and Dortmund overwhelmed Galatasaray, Weidenfeller looked much more like his commanding self. He'll now turn his attention to keeping a consecutive clean sheet at the weekend against Hannover. Dortmund have failed to have one clean sheet in the Bundesliga this season, last having a league shut-out on May 10 against Hertha Berlin.

Weidenfeller is yet to open up talks over a new contract Sky Sports reports.

Having been at Dortmund since 2002, it appears that no deal is yet in place to extend Dortmund number one's contract past 2016. However he is unlikely to go elsewhere and says he would relish the chance to see out his career for a club that he has made over 300 appearances. He said "I am surely not going to retire in 2016, that’s a fact. I am planning to go on playing for many years. I have been with Borussia Dortmund for more than 12 years now. This club is in my heart. I am unable to imagine playing for another club in my career."

Weidenfeller had an awful performance and his mistake gifted the opposition their second goal as Dortmund lost 2-1 Saturday to Köln.

The German international had an uncharacteristically bad game and was a far cry from his normally consistent self. Weidenfeller conceded two goals from five shots and could be blamed at least partially for both goals. FC Köln's Kevin Vogt beat him too easily for the first goal and then Weidenfeller inexplicably missed Yuya Osako's cross to give the easiest of finishes to Simon Voller. With Dortmund being so shambolic in defence this year, they cannot afford for their solid goalkeeper to start having games like this one. 14 goals have now been conceded in 8 league games and that has to improve.
