Piszczek defended and attacked well at times but was far from his best Saturday as Dortmund lost 2-1 to Werder Bremen.

Piszczek returned to the team having missed the home tie with Wolfsburg but didn't play to the best of his abilities. Despite completing seven crosses and going close to scoring with a deflected pass, the Polish international was part of a frail Dortmund defensive line and made too many misplaced passes thus losing valuable possession for his team.

Piszczek worked hard but looked poor in defense as Dortmund fell to a 1-0 defeat Saturday to Hertha Berlin.

Piszczek was typically attack-minded and aided Dortmund going forward but looked shaky in defense during Saturday's encounter. He was reckless at times and made an awful tackle on Hertha's Per Skjelbred in the second half which got him booked. Dortmund are suffering badly in the league with even usually consistent performers like Piszczek visibly struggling.

Piszczek kept his second league clean sheet of the season as Dortmund beat Hoffenheim 1-0 Friday.

Having been taken off early due to injury against Eintracht Frankfurt, Piszczek was fit to start and played the full 90 minutes. He defended well but wasn't particularly effective going forward, managing just one cross in the game. Nevertheless he succeeded in securing Dortmund's second clean sheet of the season in what was interestingly the first time that this defense (Piszczek, Mats Hummels, Neven Subotic, Marcel Schmelzer) had played together since the Champions League 2013 final.

Piszczek played poorly and was taken off on 38 minutes following an injury as Dortmund lost 2-0 Sunday to Eintracht Frankfurt.

After starting the season well with a series of fine performances, Piszczek has been below par lately. His creativity has largely diminished and against Frankfurt his defending was questionable too. Piszczek's game was cut short by injury, only for the equally woeful Kevin Grossskreutz to stand in for him at full-back.

Piszczek put in a decent performance despite conceding two goals Saturday in Dortmund's 2-2 tie with Paderborn.

Although maybe not as effective as fellow full-back Erik Durm this time around, Piszczek was solid defensively and did try going forward when he could. He made more runs than any other player in the game and completed three crosses before time was up. It wasn't the Pole's most dynamic match but it was an admirable one nonetheless.

Piszczek (back) should be available Saturday to face Paderborn despite missing Poland's midweek friendly game with Switzerland, FourFourTwo.com reports.

Piszczek sat out Poland's game against Switzerland with a back complaint but it seems to be nothing major and he is fully expected to return to action Saturday with Dortmund.

Piszczek kept his first league clean sheet of the season as Dortmund secured a 1-0 win Sunday over Borussia Moenchengladbach.

As well as keeping his first clean sheet of the Bundesliga season, Piszczek was very attacking down the flank and caused Gladbach several problems. He made game highs of crosses (4) and runs (87) but did let himself down when he blazed a shot over one-one with Gladbach goalkeeper Yann Sommer. All-in-all however it was a typically dynamic and outstanding performance by the full-back.

Piszczek got an assist as Dortmund beat Galatasaray 4-1 in the Champions League Tuesday.

Piszczek cut open the Galatasaray defense with a through ball for Marco Reus who beat the offside trap and finished well. It was the first goal of the night and helped Dortmund on their way to a win and the next round of the competition.
