VIDEO: Wolfsburg 1 – 5 Borussia Dortmund [Bundesliga] Highlights 2016/17
The Gabon international was in fine form as Thomas Tuchel’s men tore Wolfsburg apart in the Volkswagen Arena on Tuesday nightBorussia Dortmund took their tally to 17 goals in three matches with a 5-1 thumping of Wolfsburg to climb to the Bundesliga’s summit.
Thomas Tuchel’s side came into this meeting at the Volkswagen Arena having beaten both Legia Warsaw and Darmstadt 6-0, and they tore apart a Wolfsburg defence that had not conceded a goal this season prior to Tuesday’s clash.
Raphael Guerreiro’s fourth-minute opener came as he slotted home following a slide-rule pass from Marc Bartra – whose participation was ended shortly afterwards by an apparent groin injury.
And Guerreiro then turned provider for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who showcased his clinical finishing skills to claim his first of the night in the 16th minute.
Two Wolfsburg half-time substitutes, Paul Seguin and Daniel Didavi, combined for the latter to haul the hosts back into it soon after the restart, but any hope was soon dashed by two quickfire Dortmund goals.
Gonzalo Castro was brought on at the break and he played a key role, first squaring for Ousmane Dembele to tap home and then teeing up Aubameyang for his second, with Lukasz Piszczek heading in the fifth from a Guerreiro corner.
