Borussia Dortmund and Wolfsburg play out a goalless draw in Sunday's Bundesliga encounter at the Westfalenstadion.
Borussia Dortmund have been held to a goalless draw by Wolfsburg in Sunday's Bundesliga encounter at the Westfalenstadion.
Peter Stoger's charges were unable to find the breakthrough against the Wolves, with star striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang not involved for disciplinary reasons.
Dortmund dominated proceedings against their opponents but were guilty of spurning several key chances, with Andriy Yarmolenko missing a gilt-edged opportunity in each half.
Alexander Isak, given his first start in Aubameyang's place, came closest in the first half when he fired against the right-hand post just before the break.
Former Manchester City teenager Jadon Sancho then struck the opposite upright early in the second half and failed to convert from Andre Schurrle's cross late on.
The visitors, who themselves came close to scoring through Daniel Didavi and Renato Steffen, held on to move four points clear of the bottom three, while Dortmund remain fourth in the table.
BORUSSIA DORTMUND (4-1-4-1): Burki; Piszczek, Sokratis, Toprak, Toljan; Weigl; Yarmolenko (Sahin 78'), Kagawa, Götze (Dahoud 56'), Sancho; Isak (Schurrle 68')
