BERLIN — Borussia Dortmund's Bundesliga troubles continued Saturday with a 1-0 loss at home to Hannover, the side's fifth defeat in six league games.

Dortmund, the 2011 and 2012 league champion, was left to rue a host of missed opportunities when Japan midfielder Hiroshi Kiyotake struck a precise free kick over the wall and inside the corner in the 61st minute.

Hannover keeper Ron-Robert Zieler produced a string of saves to deny the home side. Hannover finished with 10 men after Ceyhun Gulselam earned his second yellow card in the 89th.

Elsewhere, Stuttgart edged a nine-goal thriller 5-4 at Eintracht Frankfurt, Augsburg defeated Freiburg 2-0, Hertha Berlin routed Hamburger SV 3-0, and unbeaten Hoffenheim defeated promoted Paderborn 1-0 to go provisionally second.

Bayer Leverkusen was hosting Schalke later.
