Borussia Dortmund climbed to second place in the Bundesliga table on Saturday following a 3-0 win against Nurnberg at Signal-Iduna Park. The hosts were stymied again and again by the in-form Raphael Schafer, who ensured a halftime draw for the Franconians.

In the second half, it was all Dortmund as goals from Mats Hummels, Robert Lewandowski and Henrikh Mkhitaryan rounded off an impressive result for the hosts, who as recently as Tuesday beat Zenit 4-2 in St. Petersburg.
