Robert Lewandowski scored a hat trick and added an assist to lead Borussia Dortmund to a 6-1 rout of Stuttgart on Friday, lifting the side provisionally top of the Bundesliga.

Dortmund went behind in the 13th minute when Karim Haggui scored with a header from the visitors' only corner.

But Sokratis equalized six minutes later in similar fashion, three minutes before Marco Reus made it 2-1 with a fine solo effort.

Lewandowski decided the game when Reus set him up with a back-heel in the 54th and Henrikh Mkhitaryan sent him though to score again less than two minutes later.

The Poland striker claimed his ninth of the season on a rebound in the 72nd, and set up Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to score in the 81st.

Dortmund moved two points clear of Bayern Munich, which visits Hoffenheim on Saturday.
