Shinji Kagawa celebrates with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in Dortmund's win against Freiburg

Borussia Dortmund eased the pressure on coach Jurgen Klopp with an impressive away victory against fellow Bundesliga strugglers Freiburg.

Goals from Marco Reus and a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang brace ensured a first league win since early December.

Dortmund took an early lead through Reus's left-foot strike inside the box.

Gabon striker Aubameyang capped a fine run for his opener before adding his second by finishing off a neat passing move on the edge of the area.

The win moves Dortmund off the bottom of the table and into 16th, above Stuttgart who lost 2-0 at home to Bayern Munich.

"We saw what happens if you have self-confidence," said Klopp, whose side had failed to win in five league games.

"Today things were a lot better. I am not surprised. I know what this team is capable of."

Dortmund - runners-up last season and champions of Germany in 2011 and 2012 - suffered an 11th defeat of the season in their previous game at home against Augsburg.

Players had to calm down vocal supporters at the final whistle after the match at the Westfalenstadion.
