Borussia Dortmund players Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Robert Lewandowski grabbed two goals apiece as Jurgen Klop’s team outclassed Hamburg 6-2 at the Signal Iduna Park.
Hamburg twice came from behind after the home team had scored two goals in quick succession, but the home side were too good and this showed the longer the game went on.
Dortmund’s opened the scoring for the home side in the 19th minute after a very intelligent quick free-kick from Schmelzer setting up Aubameyang for the opener.
Klop’s other new signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan also got onto the score sheet in the 22nd minute after good work by striker Robert Lewandowski.
Zhi Gin Lam grabbed one back for Hamburg after his shot from outside the box found the bottom right corner four minutes after Dortmund’s second.
The visitors did score first in the second-half when Heiko Westermann equalised with a close range header in the 49th minute, but after that it was all Dortmund and the Champions League losing finalists were ruthless in front of goal.
First-half goal scorers Aubameyang and Mkhitaryan then linked with the Gabon flyer finishing off a neat move to score his second of the match.
Dortmund’s Polish striker Lewandowski then got into the act scoring either side of Marco Reus’ 74th minute goal and will have Jurgen Klop extremely happy with his side’s performance in front of their home fans.
