Borussia Dortmund moved five points clear at the top of the Bundesliga after a 2-1 win away to Augsburg on Saturday.

The winning goal was scored by Shinji Kagawa, with the stunning strike making the former Manchester United midfielder the top-scoring Japanese player in the history of the German top-flight.

Adriy Yarmolenko opened the scoring after just four minutes, before Caiuby leveled the scores for the home team soon after.

On 23 minutes, the goal of the game arrived with Kagawa producing an outstanding chip which sailed over Marwin Hitz and into the back of the Augsburg goal.

Quite a magnificent goal which was Kagawa’s 38th in the Bundesliga, a record for a Japanese player after moving him one ahead of Leicester striker Shinji Okazaki.

Overall, it was a nervy afternoon for the league leaders, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang making a right mess of a spot-kick.

The game also saw English youngster Jadon Sancho take his place on the bench for Dortmund, although the starlet didn’t get a run out.
