Ir­re­sistible Dort­mund put five past Wolfs­burg

Malta Independent - - SPORT -

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.
