Marco Reus grabbed a brace Borussia Dortmund comprehensively defeated top-four rivals Bayer Leverkusen 4-0, to return to winning ways on Saturday.
Dortmund made light work of their opponents and set the tone early on in the contest. Leverkusen keeper Lukáš Hrádecký pulled off two quicksave to deny Marco Reus and former Leverkusen man Julian Brandt on the rebound from a tight angle.
Eventually, Borussia’s persistence paid off. Achraf Hakimi knocked in a perfect cross from the right-wing, Paco Alcácer was on hand to volley in the opener and continue his run of goalscoring form for club and country.
Dortmund continued to craft opportunities and a team goal of undeniable quality doubled their advantage early in the second half. Jadon Sancho with the cross across the box, Alcácer with the dummy and Marco Reus timing his run perfectly to sweep the ball into the corner.
Happy to hold their opponents, Dortmund grabbed a third ten minutes from time on the breakaway. Sancho again central drilling the cross into the danger zone. Hrádecký palmed the ball into the path of Raphaël Guerreiro who turned in from close range for his first goal of the season.
Reus eventually got a second goal of the game in stoppage time. Substitute Jacob Bruun Larsen picked out the BVB captain at the far post for the easiest of finishes. The victory means that Dortmund currently top the league ahead of RB Leipzig taking on Bayern Munich.
