Jude Bellingham and Gio Reyna on target as five-star Borussia Dortmund down VfB Stuttgart


Jude Bellingham scored after just two minutes and Gio Reyna was also on the scoresheet as Borussia Dortmund made light work of VfB Stuttgart in a 5-0 victory on Matchday 11.

Dortmund 5-0 Stuttgart
Goals: 1-0 Bellingham 2' (assist: Süle), 2-0 Süle 13' (assist: Guerreiro), 3-0 Reyna 44' (assist: Moukoko), 4-0 Bellingham 53' (assist: Schlotterbeck), 5-0 Moukoko 72' (assist: Guerreiro)

Stuttgart had enjoyed a renaissance of sorts over the past week, recording a 4-1 win over Bochum and a 6-0 DFB Cup success against Arminia Bielefeld on Wednesday in Michael Wimmer's first two games at the helm as caretaker coach. They were caught off guard early on at the Signal Iduna Park though, Bellingham slotting in from Niklas Süle's cross while many fans were still getting settled in their seats. Süle doubled Dortmund's advantage shortly afterwards, volleying in Raphael Guerreiro's free-kick from the left. There was very little to see of Stuttgart's attacking prowess that had seen them score 10 times in their last two outings, and the hosts virtually made sure of the points on the stroke of half-time, Youssoufa Moukoko finding Reyna to curl in his first league goal of the season.

Any lingering hopes Stuttgart might have had of a second-half fightback were extinguished in the 53rd minute when Bellingham scored his second of the game. Collecting the ball on the left-hand side of the pitch, the teenager danced past a couple of challenges before curling a sumptuous effort into the far corner. BVB added the icing on the cake in the closing stages, banishing memories of last week's defeat to Union Berlin, when Moukoko tapped in at the back post from Guerreiro's cross to give Edin Terzic his biggest-ever win in charge of the team.
