Dortmund defiant over title chances

Dortmund have beaten Bayern to the league title for the last two seasons under Klopp's charge, but have started sluggishly this season with Jupp Heynckes' side already building a nine-point advantage.

"I don't care about Bayern's nine-point advantage," Klopp said. "We're playing our own season, just as Bayern are playing theirs. We'll see where we stand at the end of it."

The failure to record a single win on the road in four attempts is the main reason for BVB's struggles. They have only been beaten once, 3-2 at Hamburg, but they have drawn their other three away games.

"There are various reasons for it," Klopp added. "We were the better side at Hamburg but our finishing let us down. But that doesn't worry me. If we keep playing like we did at Hannover and Hamburg, we'll soon clinch our first victory."
