Borussia Dortmund cemented top spot in the Bundesliga with their fourth successive win, seeing off Augsburg 2-1.

Peter Bosz's men shook off their 3-1 Champions League home loss to Real Madrid by their stretching their unbeaten start to the league campaign to seven matches.

Shinji Kagawa became the Bundesliga's all-time leading Japanese goalscorer, with his 38th strike, moving past Shinji Okazaki.

Andriy Yarmolenko hit his first Bundesliga goal on his fourth appearance following his 25million euro summer switch from Dynamo Kiev.

Brazil forward Caiuby found the net for the hosts, but Augsburg were unable to stop Dortmund extending their fine start to the new term.
