DORTMUND — Borussia Dortmund scored five second half goals against their Austrian guests Wolfsberg to comfortably secure their place in the playoff round of the Europa League in front of a record crowd of more than 65,000 at Signal Iduna Park. Reus, Aubameyang and Mkhitaryan’s hat-trick sealed the win.
Marco Reus hit the net on 47 minutes, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang added a second on the hour mark before Henrikh Mkhitaryan struck a hat-trick in the last 20 minutes to round off a solid workout for the German club.
In the last 20 minutes, Armenian forward Mkhitaryan stole the show. His first was an excellent left-foot finish from outside of the area, while he bashed home a second with his stronger foot on 82 minutes.
Mkhitaryan struck a third from long distance late in the game to bag Dortmund a spot in the next round draw of the UEFA Europa League.
