Dortmund - Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was at it again on Matchday 10, netting his second hat-trick in as many games to inspire Borussia Dortmund to a 5-1 success over FC Augsburg.
After knocking three goals past Qäbälä FK in the UEFA Europa League last Thursday, the Gabonese followed it up with another treble on Matchday 10 - his third hat-trick in BVB colours, and his 20th goals in all competitions this season.
Fresh from his latest flurry against Augsburg, the Bundesliga's join-top scorer gave account of his fabulous current run.
Question: Auba, you've scored two hat tricks in four days. How do you do it?
Aubameyang: Yesterday I made a bet with my brother that I would score another hat trick. I said if I did, I'd give him a surprise. I'm very happy to have scored three times again, and it was very important that we won the game.
Question: You also had a bet with Thomas Tuchel that you would score 20 goals this season...
Aubameyang: I did...I have scored 20 already in all competitions, but the bet was only about the Bundesliga. I have to continue like this.
Question: What is your secret?
Aubameyang: I don't know. I try to do my best in training, and when I'm recovering at home. When we're playing every three days it's important to sleep and eat well.
Question: Your friend Marco Reus is in shape now...
Aubameyang: Marco is back, and I'm very happy for him. It's important for us that Marco plays like this.
Question: You have 13 Bundesliga goals now, the same amount as Robert Lewandowski. Do you aim to be better than him?
Aubameyang: Lewandowski is one of the best strikers in the world at the moment, and I'm trying to be like him. But I can only try. I'm happy for him to be the Bundesliga's top scorer.
Question: You got the match ball on Thursday and another one today. Are you going to need a special room for all of them?
Aubameyang: I always give them to my son. I think we'll need to get him a bigger room now!
