Pierre-Emerick Aubaumeyang then tapped in Marco Reus' driven cross to double their advantage shortly after the restart.

The Gabon striker scored a close-range second to secure victory in the 70th minute.

The result kept Dortmund within touching distance of RB Leipzig for the final automatic Champions League spot.
