Borussia Dortmund produced a scintillating attacking display to dispatch Fortuna 5-0 in the Bundesliga on Saturday afternoon, keeping up the pressure on Borussia Monchengladbach at the top of the table.

Dortmund were brilliant for the entirety of the first half, playing some scintillating football and creating ​multiple chances. Marco Reus and especially Julian Brandt were involved in everything good for Die Borussen, with Zack Steffen the man preventing them from taking the lead.

As the first half was drawing to a close, Dortmund finally grabbed the goal they fully deserved thanks to Reus. The captain received a lovely pass from Lukasz Piszczek in the box, and he slotted home emphatically to give them a crucial goal on the cusp of half-time.


Dortmund came out the traps in the second half in similar fashion, and after Jadon Sancho had a goal ruled out for offside, Thorgan Hazard doubled the hosts advantage.

It was soon three with Sancho scoring this time, after the England international passed the ball into a gaping net following a neat exchange with Reus. The German himself made it four with 20 minutes to go, as he put it through the keeper’s legs after some good play from Hazard.

The demolition job was completed by Sancho after good work from Achraf Hakimi, rounding off a superb home performance.

Here’s 90min‘s review of the game.
