Borussia Dortmund dispatch Freiburg to join Bundesliga leaders

Borussia Dortmund joined leaders Bayern Munich atop the Bundesliga table with a 3-1 defeat of Freiburg on Friday.

Goals from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Lukasz Piszczek and Raphael Guerreiro gave Thomas Tuchel's men their fourth victory from five matches this season.

The hosts went in front on the stroke of 45 minutes through Aubameyang -- Ousmane Dembele dragging his cross across the face of goal for the sliding Gabonese striker to poke home.

Piszczek added Dortmund's second eight minutes after the break -- the Poland international pouncing on a poor clearance of a Gonzalo Castro cross and side-footing into the top right corner.

Freiburg hit back seven minutes later. Maximilian Philipp raced onto a fine through ball before firing across Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Burki and into the far netting.

Second-half substitute Guerreiro completed the scoreline in second-half stoppage time with a fine finish after an impressive interplay of passes played him in on goal.
