Hannover 96 2-3 Borussia Dortmund

Borussia Dortmund celebrate
Borussia Dortmund are now unbeaten in seven Bundesliga games

Borussia Dortmund continued their Bundesliga revival with an entertaining win at Hannover.

Dortmund have risen from bottom at the start of February to 10th and remain 12 points off the top four.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang gave Dortmund the lead before a Lars Stindl leveller.

Hannover had Leonardo Bittencourt sent off for two bookings, before Shinji Kagawa tapped in and Aubameyang headed home to put Dortmund in control with Stindl scoring a late consolation.

Bayer Leverkusen went up to third by beating Schalke, who are fifth, 1-0, with Karim Bellarabi driving in the only goal.

The day's other games saw Stuttgart beat Eintracht Frankfurt 3-1, Freiburg defeat Augsburg 2-0, Cologne draw 1-1 with Werder Bremen and Paderborn draw 0-0 with Hoffenheim.
