Aubameyang nets brace in Dortmund's 5-1 rout of Wolfsburg

Borussia Dortmund put some pressure on Bayern Munich at the top of the Bundesliga with a convincing 5-1 win at Wolfsburg.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was on target twice for the Westphalians, with Raphael Guerreiro, Ousmane Dembele and Lukasz Piszczek also finding the back of the net for Thomas Tuchel's men.

Daniel Didavi scored what proved to be merely a consolation for Wolfsburg, while Mario Gomez drew a blank for the third game in a row since arriving from Fiorentina.

It was clear from the early exchanges that Dortmund meant business and it was therefore no surprise that they took the lead in the fourth minute with Guerreiro latching onto Marc Bartra's through ball before providing a cool finish for his first Bundesliga goal.

Gomez went close to levelling for the hosts before Aubameyang took Guerreiro's flicked header in his stride and beat Koen Casteels to make it two.

Wolfsburg continued to waste their chances and coach Dieter Hecking reacted with two substitutions at half-time, Didavi and Paul Seguin both coming on.

The latter set up the former to reduce the arrears in the 53rd minute, moments after Gomez had hit the post, but Dembele restored Dortmund's two-goal advantage only five minutes later, turning the ball in from Gonzalo Castro's pass.

Castro provided the fourth for Aubameyang before Guerreiro teed up Piszczek to head in a fifth from a corner, sealing Dortmund's emphatic victory.
