Borussia Dortmund were back in action on Saturday for the second time since the return of football, enjoying a 2-0 win over Wolfsburg.
The Bundesliga was back this weekend for its second match day since the league returned from its COVID-19 hiatus with Borussia Dortmund still hot on the heels of Bayern Munich in this years title race. Dortmund were able to temporarily close the gap between themselves and the Bavarian giants with a hard earned 2-0 victory in Wolfsburg which saw goals from in form Raphaël Guerreiro and Achraf Hakimi sealing the win for Die Schwarzgelben.
