BERLIN (AP) -- Borussia Dortmund conceded more ground in the Bundesliga title race after being held to a 1-1 draw at Borussia Moenchengladbach on Sunday.
Mario Goetze put the visitors ahead from the penalty spot for his fourth goal of the season in the 31st minute. Amin Younes, who had Moenchengladbach's first effort on goal in the 56th minute, equalized with a deflected shot in the 67th after Dortmund had failed to clear the ball.
Goetze earned the penalty when he was brought down by Moenchengladbach goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen in the area.
"It was mistake," the goalkeeper said. "He put the ball past me and then accepted the present. I'll work on my positioning."
Playing without club top scorers Juan Arango and Patrick Herrmann through injury and suspension, respectively, Moenchengladbach failed to have a shot on goal in the first half. But the 19-year-old Younes then netted his first Bundesliga goal to earn the point.
"I'll go home and celebrate with my family," Younes said.
Both sides had chances to win it late on. Moenchengladbach substitute Peniel Mlapa hit the side-netting from a difficult angle in the last minute. Dortmund captain Sebastian Kehl then missed with the goal at his mercy in injury time.
"We had the game in our grip, didn't allow any goal chances," Kehl said. "There's no way should have allowed this game end in a draw. In the end I could have decided it, that's bitter."
Defending champion Dortmund was left 17 points behind runaway leader Bayern Munich. The sides meet in an eagerly anticipated German Cup quarterfinal on Wednesday.
Dortmund defender Mats Hummels will be in doubt for the game after going off holding his thigh at halftime.
"We just didn't move well today," Dortmund forward Marco Reus said after his first return to Moenchengladbach since switching between the sides. "I don't know why. It was very untypical of us."
Bottom side Greuther Fuerth was hosting third-place Bayer Leverkusen later Sunday.
