SV Werder Bremen 1-5 Borussia Dortmund

Henrikh Mkhitaryan scores

Robert Lewandowski and Henrikh Mkhitaryan scored twice each as Champions League hopefuls Borussia Dortmund hammered Werder Bremen.

Dortmund, who remain 17 points behind leaders Bayern Munich in third, took the lead after 26 minutes through Lewandowski, who is moving to Bayern this summer, after Marcel Schmelzer pounced on an error.

Mkhitaryan put them 2-0 up late in the first half with a powerful effort and Manuel Friedrich volleyed a third soon after the break.

Armenia international Mkhitaryan curled home after a Marco Reus backheel and Lewandowski added a fifth, before Levent Aycicek's late consolation for Bremen.

The 2004 champions are only three points above the bottom three.
