Bundesliga WK 6 Wrap: Dortmund corner top spot after big win

Pierre Emerick Aubameyang-Bundesliga

Borussia Dortmund are now dictating the pace in the German Bundesliga after a weekend full of surprises.

Dortmund turned in arguably the season's best performance in their 6-1 demolition of Borussia Mönchengladbach. BVB now have 16 points from six matches, their best ever start to a season, and their goal difference of plus 18 is the best after six games in Bundesliga history. Pierre Emerick Aubameyang got a hat-trick.

Elsewhere, Timo Werner continued to demonstrate his status as the best German striker in the business with a sharply taken goal in Leipzig's 2-1 win over Frankfurt on Saturday.

His five goals in six games mean he's the highest scoring player under the age of 21 in Europe's top five leagues this term.

Also, Martin Schmidt's reign at Wolfsburg got an early shot in the arm as his side came from two down to take a point against Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena.

After an unconvincing draw with struggling Bremen in his first game in charge, second-half strikes from Max Arnold and Daniel Didavi will surely provide a confidence boost to a club that have struggled badly in recent times.

As it stands, Victor Osimhen does not feature in the new coach’s plan as he is yet to make the matchday squad let alone get some playing time.

 Leon Bailey made the most of his first Bundesliga start. The Jamaican youngster set up both of Leverksuen's goals in the club's 3-0 win over Hamburg on Sunday. It was HSV's fourth loss in a row.

Cologne finally have a point, but they got it with another goal-less performance in Hannover.

There was also something to cheer for Leon Balogun and his Mainz 05 teammates as they were able to get a lone goal win over visiting Hertha Berlin.

The victory is just the second of the season for Mainz who just two spots off the drop zone.
