Dortmund too good for Johor Southern Tigers

Johor - Borussia Dortmund were comfortable 6-1 winners against Malaysian side Johor Southern Tigers in the second of their Bundesliga World Tour 2015 pre-season friendlies.

BVB procession

First-half goals from Ilkay Gündogan, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Kevin Kampl put BVB on the road to victory, with Shinji Kagawa and Jeremy Dudziak finishing the home side off after a consolation effort from former Dortmund trainee Gary Steven Robbat.

After dominating the opening exchanges at the Larkin Stadium, Ilkay Gündogan, fresh from signing a contract extension at the club, fired Borussia in front with a sweetly struck free-kick midway through the first half. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who bagged a brace in Monday’s friendly win against Kawasaki Frontale in Tokyo, then added a second from close range, before Kevin Kampl punished a goalkeeping error to make it 3-0.

The partisan home crowd had something to shout about just before half-time when Robbat, who trained with Dortmund's U-23 side back in the winter of 2014/15, calmly side-footed in to make it 3-1. Thomas Tuchel’s men reasserted themselves quickly, however, with Kagawa, Dudziak and Reus all finding the net to round off a successful pair of matches for the Schwarz-Gelben, who will wrap up their Asia tour on 11 July.
