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 half-time 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.
Is there a better attack anywhere in Europe at present? Dortmund have now scored 17 goals in their last three competitive outings and look like finding the net almost every time they go forward.
