Freiburg debutant Yoric Ravet was dismissed after a Video Assistant Referee review just before the half-hour mark for a reckless challenge on Marcel Schmelzer, referee Benjamin Cortus having initially brandished a yellow card.

From then on, Dortmund poured men forward and ended the match with 83 per cent possession, but it was not enough as Freiburg clung on to a commendable point.

And Bosz was thoroughly unimpressed with his side for failing to make the most of their superiority.

Dortmund unable to find target against 10-man Freiburg
Borussia Dortmund failed to make the most of their numerical advantage as they were held to a 0-0 Bundesliga draw by a Freiburg side that played over an hour with 10 men.

"I'm disappointed," Bosz told reporters. "When you play for an hour with a man extra, you must win. There is enough time to score.

"To leave with a draw isn't enough. That was not enough today. For us, there are two lost points."

Schmelzer had to be withdrawn as a result of Ravet's tackle and midfielder Gonzalo Castro blamed referee Cortus for setting the tone by failing to strictly punish earlier challenges.

"This is the problem: if you, as a referee, do not give an early sign with a yellow card then something happens, like this foul, and one of us is hurt again," he said.
