Jadon Sancho and Jude Bellingham were excellent in the first half, before Marco Reus came on and marked his return to competitive action with an instant goal. It was a complete performance by Borussia Dortmund, which puts them in the hat for the second round of the DFB Pokal.
Here are our player ratings for the Borussia Dortmund players from their 5-0 win over MSV Duisburg.
Marwin Hitz (6/10)
Filling in for the injured Roman Bürki, Hitz did not have much to do as Borussia Dortmund were well on top all game. He was tested on a couple of occasions but he made routine saves to keep his clean sheet.
