Bundesliga: Dortmund stays hot, wins big at Wolfsburg
FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) — Ousmane Dembele, the highly touted French teenager, scored his first Bundesliga goal for Borussia Dortmund in a 5-1 rout of Wolfsburg on Tuesday.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored two goals but it was Dembele's goal that broke Wolfsburg's resistance.
The 19-year-old Dembele is considered one of the biggest talents in Europe and his goal in the 59th for a 3-1 lead came at the time when Dortmund was under pressure. Wolfsburg had just pulled a goal back and looked close to equalizing when Dembele struck.
Raphael Guerreiro, another of Dortmund's new signings who had scored the opening goal, fed substitute Gonzalo Castro with a through pass. Castro squared the ball to the onrushing Dembele for an easy finish.
Aubameyang brought his season total to four goals in four matches and Lukasz Piszczek added the fifth in the 73rd minute. while Dortmund now has outscored its opponents 17-1 in its last three matches in all competitions.
Elsewhere, Eintracht Frankfurt won 2-0 in Ingolstadt, Hambrurger SV slipped to another defeat by going down 1-0 at Freiburg and Darmstadt clinched a late equalizer to salvage a 1-1 draw with Hoffenheim at home.
Dortmund and Frankfurt pulled level on nine points with Bayern Munich and Hertha Berlin, which play each other on Wednesday.
