Aubameyang Hands Dortmund Win

A brace from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang handed Borussia Dortmund a 2-1 win over Eintracht Braunschweig in a German Bundesliga match at the Eintracht-Stadion on Friday night.

The result sees Dortmund up to third on the league table with 36 points, one behind second placed Bayer Leverkusen and a staggering 14 behind leaders Bayern Munich. Dortmund, though, have played a game more than both sides.

The loss for Eintracht sees them firmly rooted to the bottom of the table on 12 points, two adrift of second from bottom FC Nurnberg.

Despite holding up the bottom of the table the home side gave Dortmund a real go for their money as the German giants did not have it all their own way.

Dortmund did most of the pressing in the opening 45 minutes, but really struggled to break down a resilient Eintracht defence early on.

Still, the away side plugged away and were rewarded for their efforts with the game’s opening goal on the half hour mark when Aubameyang headed home a Robert Lewandowski cross from six-yards out, 1-0.

While many thought the flood gates would open after Eintracht let in the first goal, that was not the case as they held their own until half time.

The start of the second half even saw Eintracht playing the better football and they soon equalised.

Benjamin Kessel drew Eintracht level in the 54th minute with a well-placed shot from the centre of the box into the bottom right-hand corner of the net, 1-1.

Eintracht’s joy, however, was short lived as Dortmund re-took the lead ten minutes later.

A quick counter-attack saw Aubameyang grab his second of the night with a clinical finish after being put through on goal by Marco Reus, 2-1.

Dortmund played out the rest of the game in relative ease as they held on for the win.
