The Signal Iduna Park outfit recorded a 2-1 win over Eintracht Braunschweig on Friday night, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang netting both goals.
The Bundesliga title battle seems like a one-horse race already, with Bayern Munich 13 points clear at the table’s summit.
However, Borussia Dortmund closed the gap between them and the Bavarian powerhouses slightly on Friday night with a 2-1 away win over bottom side Eintracht Braunschweig.
Despite the presence of the likes of Robert Lewandowski and Marco Reus, it was Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who ended up as the goalscoring hero, netting twice for Jurgen Klopp’s charges.
The Gabon international opened the scoring on 31 minutes, but the relegation threatened hosts struck back with a Benjamin Kessel strike just after half-time.
The African attacker popped up with the winner in the 65th minute however to give Klopp’s men an invaluable three points.
Dortmund have suffered injury concerns in their defence of late, but were boosted by the return of Mats Hummels. The Germany international managed to play the full 90 minutes, which will be a real relief to the Dortmund fans.
