Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored in Borussia Dortmund's 2-0 win at home to Hertha Berlin in the Bundesliga on Saturday to resume his battle with Lewandowski to be Germany's top scorer.

Aubameyang netted after just 15 minutes from a Nuri Sahin cross before the Turkey midfielder grabbed Dortmund's second when he blasted home from the edge of the area.

Gabon's hot-shot striker Aubameyang has now scored in each of his last eight games in all competitions dating back to last season.

The home victory puts Dortmund top of the fledgling table on goal difference ahead of Bayern.

Earlier on Saturday, Bayern defeated Werder Bremen 2-0, thanks a double from Lewandowski.
