Irresistible Dortmund put five past Wolfsburg
Borussia Dortmund continued their astonishing run of scoring form, hitting five goals away to VfL Wolfsburg to record their third Bundesliga win of the season.
Having put six goals past SV Darmstadt 98 on Saturday, Dortmund carried on where they left off and took the lead almost straight away at the Volkswagen Arena. Raphael Guerreiro collected Marc Bartra's excellent through ball to tuck away the opener in the fourth minute, before Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang outfoxed Philipp Wollscheid on the edge of the area before curling home. The hosts had a couple of chances before the break, but wasteful finishing prevented them getting a foothold in the game.
Daniel Didavi managed to do just that within minutes of the restart, poking in at the near post from Paul Seguin's pass. However, BVB soon knocked the wind out of their sails again, with halftime substitute Gonzalo Castro teeing up both Ousmane Dembele and Aubameyang to kill the game of as a contest. Lukasz Piszczek added further gloss to the scoreline, heading in his first Bundesliga goal since 3 May 2014 to give Dortmund yet another thumping win.
Nils Petersen strike leaves pressure on Hamburg boss Bruno Labbadia
Freiburg put the pressure on Hamburg's under-fire coach Bruno Labbadia with a 1-0 win at the Dreisamstadion yesterday.
Nils Petersen's 70th-minute strike was enough to take Christian Streich's men into the top half of the table and leave their northern Germany rivals inside the bottom three with just one point from their first four games of the season.
Bobby Wood hit the post for Hamburg, but their lack of a reaction in the second half may worry club bosses, with the pressure already high on Labbadia, who may become the second Bundesliga coaching casualty this season following the dismissal of Viktor Skripnik at rivals Werder Bremen at the weekend.
Hamburg have just one point from their first four games of the season and could drop into the bottom two today.
