Highlights: Borussia Dortmund beat SC Freiburg 3-0 to move up Bundesliga table
Borussia Dortmund finally lifted themselves up from last in the Bundesliga table with a 3-0 win over SC Freiburg. Marco Reus opened the scoring for Jurgen Klopp’s struggling team before a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang brace sealed the win to take them up to 16th in the table.
Klopp’s side hadn’t won a match in the past five games, but a crucial win made sure they went home with three points, but still a long way away from Champions League spots with only 19 points in 20 games – 13 points from fourth and final Champions League place. Bayern Munich’s 2-0 win over Stuttgart ensured Dortmund leapfrogged them in the table
After the game, Klopp was happy with the result and said: “We saw what happens if you have self-confidence.
“Today things were a lot better. I am not surprised. I know what this team is capable of.”
Though Dortmund’s fans are known to be some of the most loyal fans, it did threaten to boil over after a defeat in the previous game against Augsburg. Mats Hummels and Roman Weidenfeller had to speak to the fans and calm them down.
