Borussia Dortmund 3-0 Bayer Leverkusen

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
Dortmund's victory over Leverkusen was their club record 11th win across all competitions since the season began

Borussia Dortmund regained top spot with an emphatic victory over Bayer Leverkusen as they extended their club record winning run to 11 games.

Dortmund were under pressure to keep apace with Bayern Munich after their 3-0 win over Darmstadt on Saturday but responded with a commanding display.

Jonas Hofmann opened the scoring after he was picked out by Shinji Kagawa, who added a second from close range.

Striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang sealed the result with a penalty.

Dortmund have won all 11 games since new coach Thomas Tuchel replaced Jurgen Klopp in the summer.

Elsewhere, Schalke won 1-0 away to Stuttgart while Augsburg clinched a 2-0 home victory over Hannover.
