Football: Dortmund usurp Bayern in eight-goal thriller
BERLIN (AFP) - Borussia Dortmund stormed back to the top of the Bundesliga on Saturday with a 6-2 romp at home to Hamburg to knock European champions Bayern Munich from first place.
After Pep Guardiola's Bayern had briefly claimed top spot with a 2-0 win over Hanover 96, Dortmund replied by routing Torsten Fink's Hamburg in emphatic style.
"That was simply awesome, it was fun just to watch," beamed Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp.
"Towards the end, my heart was singing and apart from the two goals we conceded, we defended well." New signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang netted twice, as did Poland striker Robert Lewandowski, as Champions League runners-up Dortmund pulled away after Hamburg had levelled at 2-2.
