Sancho hits brilliant volley against Leverkusen

Jadon Sancho scored an excellent volley as Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund beat Bayer Leverkusen for their first win in six games in all competitions.

Dan-Axel Zagadou put Dortmund ahead from Sancho's corner before Kevin Volland deservedly levelled with a low 20-yard strike.

England teenager Sancho scored his ninth goal of the season with a fine strike from Abdou Diallo cross.

Mario Gotze smashed a third before Jonathan Tah's consolation header.

Dortmund are three points ahead of second-placed champions Bayern Munich, who beat Hertha Berlin 1-0 on Saturday.
