Borussia Dortmund achieved for just the second time in their 107-year history

Borussia Dortmund achieved for just the second time in their 107-year history on Tuesday.

 The first was in 1982 – a run in which half their goals came from Manni Burgsmuller and one indebted to a club-record 11-1 demolition of Arminia Bielefeld. 

BVB’s latest sequence owed much less to one player or one result. Six men scored in their 6-0 success at Legia Warsaw and five did when they beat Darmstadt by the same scoreline, while in their 5-1 win at Wolfsburg on Tuesday, Ousmane Dembele and Lukasz Piszczek became the 13th and 14th players to find the target for Dortmund in just their sixth match this season. 

Meanwhile Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s goals at the Volkswagen Arena were his first away from home in the league since February.

Dortmund have scored 20 goals – distributed between 12 players – in their last four games.
• Thomas Tuchel's men followed up their 6-0 win at Legia with an identical victory at home to SV Darmstadt 98 on 17 September. They then prevailed 5-1 against a VfL Wolfsburg side that had hitherto not conceded a goal in the Bundesliga this season and on Friday overcame SC Freiburg 3-1.
• By beating Freiburg, Dortmund matched their club record of 24 home Bundesliga fixtures without defeat, set between January 1965 and April 1966 and equalled from November 2001 to March 2003.
• Sebastian Rode and Emre Mor registered their first Dortmund goals in the defeat of Darmstadt; Dembélé did likewise away to Wolfsburg, where Piszczek was on target for the first time in the Bundesliga since 3 May 2014.
• Bartra was substituted early on in Wolfsburg due to an adductor strain and missed the visit of Freiburg.
• Schürrle has sat out Dortmund's last four encounters with the knee injury he sustained in the 1-0 loss at RB Leipzig on 10 September.
• Sven Bender has not played for Dortmund this season due to the ankle injury he suffered at the Olympic Games, where he and Matthias Ginter won silver medals.
