Borussia Dortmund limp off period of two consecutive defeats end with an easy marching ahead against VFL Wolfsburg. Dortmund thrashed Wolfsburg 3-0 to skip ahead at third on Bundesliga table, duly helped by Hertha BSC lost points against Bayern Munich. Jeffrey Bruma scored an own goal for Wolfsburg, which gave men in Black & Yellow an early goal lead in 20th minute, whereas Lukasz Piszczek & Ousmane Dembele second half strikes sealed the deal for the hosts at Signal Iduna Park.
Dortmund arrived at home with two back to back losses against Darmstadt (2-1) and Benfica (1-0). They were really obliged to give a power-packed performance to impress their home fans, and they certainly did. It wasn’t a packed Signal Iduna Park as they served the ban to close their partial Yellow Wall after racists remarks against RB Leipzig game. They had a difficult week with a Bundesliga defeat against Darmstadt, and a Uefa Champions League defeat against Benfica, but the bottom half table team Wolfsburg arrived at Signal Iduna Park at right time for the hosts.
