German Bundesliga: Is Borussia Dortmund too good to go down?

    Borussia Dortmund players react to their 1-0 defeat against Augsburg Wednesday.

    Story highlights

    • Borussia Dortmund sits bottom of the German Bundesliga table
    • Dortmund's most recent loss to Augsburg left its fans angry and frustrated
    • The German club won back-to-back Bundesliga titles in 2011 and 2012

    (CNN)A little under two years ago, Borussia Dortmund was a mere 90 minutes away from being crowned champion of Europe.

    The Champions League final against domestic rival Bayern Munich at Wembley on May 25, 2013 didn't quite go to plan, but for a team that had won back-to-back German Bundesliga titles against the odds in the previous two seasons, there was still plenty to smile about.
      "We will come back, maybe not to Wembley, but we will try to come back to another final," Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp said after the final whistle.
      Fast-forward to February 2015, and the club with such lofty ambitions finds itself bottom of a Bundesliga table it had previously been used to ruling.
      Seven of the players who graced the Wembley turf for Dortmund two seasons ago took to the field Wednesday against Augsburg -- a game that would prove to be the nadir of a so far disastrous campaign.
      Klopp's men slumped to a 1-0 defeat at home to a side reduced to 10 men, with further salt rubbed into the wound by the fact that Augsburg had never before beaten Dortmund in its history.
      The latest defeat proved to be the tipping point, with fans at the Westfalenstadion finally venting their anger and frustrations after having stayed patient through previous setbacks.
      So much so that, after the match, a couple of Dortmund players were moved to publicly apologize to the supporters, with Mats Hummels speaking to them through the perimeter fence.
      Goalkeeper Roman Weidenfeller went even further, scaling the fence to ensure a more intimate dialogue with the unhappy Dortmund fans.
      Confidence has drained away and, with every passing defeat against the underdogs of Hertha Berlin, Cologne and Mainz, Dortmund's next win seems ever harder to secure.
