Borussia Dortmund's haul of 48 points after 19 Bundesliga matches is a new club record.

A handful of players caught the eye, as Marco Reus scored and got an assist, as did Achraf Hakimi and Raphael Guerreiro.

Jadon Sancho was effective again as well, setting up two goals on the day.

It continued what has been a remarkable campaign for Dortmund, which has lost just once and dropped points four times in total.
