Dortmund, Leipzig wrap up wins in Bundesliga
Berlin: Dortmund celebrated a goal festival and crushed Monchengladbach 6-1 while Leipzig returned to winning ways after edging Frankfurt 2-1 at the sixth round in Bundesliga football league.
Dortmund showed no mercy and beat Monchengladbach 6-1 on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's hattrick on Saturday, reports Xinhua news agency.
The visitors had a bright start on the road and they should have grabbed the lead but Thorgan Hazard was unable to overcome Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Buerki following a one-on-one with 10 minutes into the game.
Dortmund responded in style and broke the deadlock through Maximilian Philipp, who volleyed home Aubameyang's cross at the near post with 28 minutes played.
Maximilian Philipp remained in the thick of things as he doubled the lead for the "BVB" only 10 minutes later.
Things went from bad to worse for the visitors before the break as Dortmund tripled their advantage when Aubameyang capitalised on an assist from Philipp in the 45th minute.
Peter Bosz' men remained in control of the proceedings and extended their lead four minutes into the second half as Aubameyang tapped home a rebound to make it 3-0 on the scoreboards. The Gabon international wasn't done with the scoring and added another goal as Mahmoud Dahoud's pass into path allowed Aubameyang to sew up his hat-trick in the 62nd minute.
Monchengladbach were able to score their consolation through Lars Stindl before Weigl got his name on the score sheets to restore Dortmund's five goal lead in the 79th minute.
