Dortmund Top Of Bundesliga

Dortmund shot to to the top of the Bundesliga table with a 2-1 away win at Frankfurt, and are the only team with a 100% win record.

Dortmund looked to take early control of the game and everything seemed to be going according to plan when Henrik Mkhitayran tapped in his first goal for his new club after being setup brilliantly by Jakub Blaszczykowski in the 10th minute.

Dortmund squandered a few opportunities to increase their lead, when against the run of play Frankfurt equalized through Vaclav Kadlec in the 36th minute.

A long ball played into the box saw Roman Weidenfeller make an initial save from Johannes Flum's attempted header, but he could only parry it to Kadlec who finished.

Frankfurt started the second-half more positively, and weren't allowing Dortmund to have as much of the ball.

But in the 56th minute Mkhitaryan added his second, this time a brilliant strike from outside of the box after some great individual work, as he cut in from the right and took his shot to give Dortmund the 2-1 lead.

Frankfurt were much better in the second-half and had a few good chances, but Dortmund held out for the result.

Earlier in the day Stuttgart got their first win of the season, as they thrashed Hoffenheim 6-2, with a hat-trick from Vedad Ibisevic and a brace from Alexandru Maxim.
