Weidenfeller: Dortmund don't need to fear anybody

The shot stopper was delighted with his side's performance at the Etihad, and feels the German champions can give any opponent a difficult game
Roman Weidenfeller believes that Borussia Dortmund do not need to fear any opponent following their performance in the Champions League Group D match against Manchester City on Wednesday evening.

The Bundesliga champions dominated proceedings at the Etihad Stadium and appeared to be on their way to the full three points following Marco Reus' opener, until Mario Balotelli levelled the scoring from the spot in the closing minutes of the match.

Nevertheless, Weidenfeller, who captained his side on the night, was quite pleased with his side's performance, and feels they deserved better.

"We don't need to fear anybody; we still have a great chance to get through although we're very disappointed we got just one point," Weidenfeller was quoted as saying on the official Uefa website.

"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."

Dortmund sit second in their section following Wednesday's results with four points from two games.
