Rarely do we see a top football club collapse as thoroughly and as quickly as Borussia Dortmund has in the first half of the 2014 2015 Bundesliga. In 2013 2014, the team only fell out of the top three slots on the league standings table once. Even then, they only ever tumbled as low as fourth, and they still Borussia Dortmund Away Shirt 2014 - 2015were consistent enough to climb into second place by spring. This season, fans have a lot less to be proud of when wearing the Borussia Dortmund Puma kit: their club, after all, is sitting in 17th place on the Bundesliga standings table.

The squad has one won four domestic matches this season, and two of those victories came in the first three weeks of competition. In other words, it's been a long and disappointing drought of success for fans of the Black and Yellows. Fortunately, the team still has 17 games left in which to create a redemption narrative, and you can participate in that narrative today by picking up a new Borussia Dortmund away jersey 2014 2015 at Soccer Box!

Dortmund's Downfall

Borussia Dortmund may not have quite the bulletproof legacy in German football that Bayern Munich does, but the club has performed more than admirably in recent years. In addition to last season's runner-up finish, the Black and Yellows won the Bundesliga title two years running in 2011 and 2012, and also finished in second place in 2013. With 2010's fifth-position finish considered, they haven't missed the top five in Germany's premier soccer division this decade.

However, looking at the current state of the union, it seems as if we won't be seeing the colors of the Borussia Dortmund Puma kit anywhere near the football division's final podium come spring 2015. An abysmal fall 2014 league performance has made sure of that.

Their record for the first 17 matches is four wins, three draws, and 10 losses. That's already more losses than the seven games the soccer squad dropped last season. And compared to Bayern Munich's still-undefeated run, it's a complete and utter disaster.

Part of the issue is the fact that, this past summer, Robert Lewandowski traded his Borussia Dortmund away jersey 2014 2015 for a Bayern Munich shirt. Lewandowski was the top scorer of the entire Bundesliga division last year, delivering 20 goals and fueling many of Dortmund's victories. Tellingly, the 25-year-old striker has scored seven league goals for Munich this season-as many as the football team's core player, Thomas Muller.

Signs of Life

Weirdly, Borussia's collapse in the 2014 2015 Bundesliga has not extended to cup play. The squad won the 2014 DFL Supercup back in August, beating Bayern Munich 2-0. They've also progressed to the round of 16 of the DFB Pokal tournament, and will face off against Dynamo Dresden in an away fixture scheduled for March 2015.

The club's surprising levels of success outside of the Bundesliga haven't just been isolated to German competitions, either. On the contrary, the wearers of the Borussia Dortmund Puma kit have also excelled so far in the 2014 2015 UEFA Champions League, and are set to compete in the first round of the knockout phase come February.

Indeed, the Black and Yellows actually won their group en route to the round of 16, topping Arsenal, Anderlecht, and Galatasaray to earn a spot in the knockouts. While the winning teams from each group are supposed to get easier draws, though, Dortmund will face Juventus in the round of 16.

Even in a good year for Borussia, the reigning Italian soccer champs from Juventus would be worthy opponents. It will therefore be quite interesting to see how the weakened 2014 2015 version of the squad performs in the next round of the UCL tournament.

Players will don the Borussia Dortmund away jersey 2014 2015 on February 24th for the first leg against Juventus. The second match will be played at home a bit less than a month later, on March 18th.
