Borussia Dortmund 4-1 VfB Stuttgart

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang celebrates scoring against Stuttgart
Borrusia Dortmund have scored 24 goals in seven home games this season

Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored two goals to take his Bundesliga tally to 17 in 14 games as Stuttgart endured a third straight league defeat.

Gonzalo Castro headed in on the rebound to put Dortmund ahead before setting up Aubameyang to make it 2-0.

Daniel Didavi reduced the deficit before Georg Niedermeier's own goal restored Dortmund's two-goal cushion.

Aubameyang scored in the last minute to complete an emphatic win.

Dortmund, who have won 10 of their 14 league games, are second in the table, eight points behind leaders Bayern Munich.

Thomas Tuchel's Dortmund side are away to third-placed Wolfsburg next Saturday.

It was a bad start for Stuttgart's caretaker coach Jurgen Kramny after replacing Alexander Zorniger in the wake of last weekend's 4-0 home defeat by Augsburg.

The defeat kept his side third from bottom in the table.

In Sunday's other two Bundesliga games, Schalke were held to a 1-1 draw by Bayer Leverkusen and are without a league win in five games.

Struggling Augsburg held third-placed Wolfsburg to a goalless draw.
