Jadon Sancho and Erling Haaland continued their prolific goalscoring form as Borussia Dortmund hammered Eintracht Frankfurt 4-0 to move one point behind Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich.
After Lukasz Piszczek gave the hosts a 33th-minute lead, Sancho and Haaland struck in the space of five minutes early in the second half.
England forward Sancho registered his 12th goal in his last 14 games while Norway striker Haaland netted his ninth in six matches since joining from RB Salzburg last month.
In the process, the Leeds-born 19-year-old became the first player in Bundesliga history to score eight times in their first five outings.
Raphael Guerreiro rounded off the scoring with a rocket 16 minutes from time to ensure Dortmund responded to back-to-back defeats in all competitions.
Atletico Madrid’s indifferent LaLiga form was extended following a 2-2 draw at Valencia.
Diego Simeone’s team took a 2-1 half-time lead after Marcos Llorente and Thomas Partey scored either side of Gabriel’s leveller.
