Weidenfeller: BVB don't fear anyone

Borussia Dortmund's Roman Weidenfeller believes his side have no reason to fear anyone following their 1-1 draw with Manchester City in the Champions League.

Wednesday's game at the Etihad Stadium saw Dortmund dominate the Barclays Premier League champions and they duly took the lead when Marco Reus opened the scoring, although they failed to find a second following an inspired display from opposition goalkeeper Joe Hart.

With minutes to go, City earned a share of the spoils when Mario Balotelli netted from the spot after a harsh handball decision, but despite missing out on three points, Weidenfeller insists there were many positives to take from the match.

"We don't need to fear anybody," he said on UEFA's official website. "We still have a great chance to get through although we're very disappointed we got just one point.

"We deserved to get the three points and [conceding] at the end was a blow we didn't deserve.

"Joe Hart has saved his team two points and I congratulate him on his performance."

Jurgen Klopp's men return to domestic action on Sunday with an away game against Hannover in the Bundesliga.
