DORTMUND, Germany, June 6 (Reuters) - Borussia Dortmund kept alive their fading hopes of wrestling the Bundesliga title from Bayern Munich's grasp after a second-half goal from Emre Can gave them a 1-0 home win over Hertha Berlin on Saturday.

The result left Dortmund second on 63 points with four rounds of games remaining, seven behind champions Bayern who moved a step closer to securing their eighth successive title with a 4-2 win at Bayer Leverkusen earlier in the day.

Dortmund squandered several chances, with England forward Jadon Sancho guilty of two astonishing misses, before former Liverpool enforcer Can drove the ball into the bottom left corner from 16 metres in the 58th minute.
