Dominant Dortmund unseat rivals Mainz

Borussia Dortmund returned to the Bundesliga summit with a crucial 2-0 win at previous leaders 1. FSV Mainz 05, and TSG 1899 Hoffenheim had plenty to celebrate too as they went third.

Borussia Dortmund are back on top in the Bundesliga after sealing a 2-0 victory at previous leaders 1. FSV Mainz 05, and there was delight too for TSG 1899 Hoffenheim as they climbed to third by downing ten-man Hannover 96 4-0.

Mainz created the early pressure but fell behind on 26 minutes as Mario Götze pounced on a Niko Bungert error to open the scoring. Thomas Tuchel's men missed the chance to level early in the second half when Eugen Polanski had a penalty saved by Roman Weidenfeller, and the visitors doubled their lead through Lucas Barrios with 23 minutes remaining.

That result, Dortmund's eighth win in nine games, lifted them a point clear of their hosts at the summit and seven clear of Hoffenheim in third. Ralf Rangnick's men moved level with Bayer 04 Leverkusen courtesy of a Gylfi Thor Sigurdsson double – his second a penalty – and a goal apiece from Demba Ba and Peniel Mlapa, after Hannover's Manuel Schmiedebach had collected a 19th-minute red card with the match still scoreless.
