Gabon's in-form striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang netted his 27th goal in the German Bundesliga as Borussia Dortmund defeated Borussia Moenchengladbach 3-2 on Saturday.

Raphael Guerreiro's 87th-minute glancing header gave Dortmund a victory at Borussia to take over third place and the last spot leading to automatic Champions League group-stage qualification.

Aubameyang started on the bench before replacing Marco Reus in the second half, putting Dortmund level at 2-2 with a goal on the hour mark. 

Dortmund, eliminated by Monaco from the Champions League this week, are on 56, a point ahead of Hoffenheim, who drew 1-1 at Cologne on Friday.
