Borussia Dortmund"s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang puts his side ahead against Freiburg
Borussia Dortmund have won four of their first five Bundesliga matches

Borussia Dortmund moved level on points with Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich after victory over mid-table Freiburg.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang marked his 100th Bundesliga game with his 59th goal, a tap in after Ousmane Dembele's cutback shortly before half-time.

It looked all over when Lukasz Piszczek drilled home from inside the area to double Dortmund's lead.

Max Philipp's composed finish reduced the deficit before Raphael Guerreiro sealed the points.

Dortmund, who have won four of their first five league games, twice hit the woodwork through Emre Mor and Aubameyang.

Thomas Tuchel's side have 12 points - the same number as Bayern Munich, who are away to struggling Hamburg on Saturday.

Dortmund host European champions Real Madrid in the Champions League next Tuesday.
