Borussia Dortmund must plug an unusually leaky defense to turn around a rocky start to the season that has seen them let in six goals in two games including three in its draw at Eintracht Frankfurt on Sept. 25, coach Jürgen Klopp said.

Reigning champion Dortmund has dropped to fifth on eight points, already seven behind leaders Bayern Munich, having won just two matches so far.

“Since I joined Dortmund we went through different phases but we never had one where we let in so many goals,” Klopp told reporters.

“Six goals in four days means we have some work to do.”

Dortmund squandered a first half two-goal lead against Frankfurt and settled for a 3-3 draw.

The team had lost 3-2 at Hamburg on Sept. 22 to see its 31-match unbeaten run in the league snap.
