Niclas Füllkrug, Marco Reus and Julian Ryerson were all on target as 10-man Borussia Dortmund managed to claim a 3-1 win over Hoffenheim.
Borussia Dortmund have made it a bit of a habit of winning ugly in the Bundesliga in recent weeks. And they successfully managed to get the three points away to TSG Hoffenheim on Friday despite delivering another ordinary performance.
The Black and Yellows started well and took the lead through Niclas Füllkrug. But Hoffenheim responded brilliantly and would have won the game had they not been wasteful in front of goal. Marco Reus restored Borussia Dortmund’s lead after Andrej Kramarić had equalised for the home side.
Julian Ryerson then made an incredible run from his own half to make it 3-1 and cap off the win after Ramy Bensebaini’s sending off.

Gregor Kobel (7/10)
Kobel had to be alert on a few occasions, as Hoffenheim asked a number of questions of him. But he stood up to the task and made several routine, yet important saves for his side.
