Dortmund beat Hamburg to make winning start

Kevin Grosskreutz scored twice and Mario Götze the other as Borussia Dortmund got their Bundesliga title defence off to a winning start against Hamburger SV in front of nearly 80,000.

Borussia Dortmund made a perfect start to the defence of their Bundesliga crown as they outclassed Hamburger SV 3-1 in opening game of the new season on Friday.

Kevin Grosskreutz and Mario Götze, two of the revelations as Dortmund's previously unheralded squad won last season's German title, scored during the first half to put them in command.

Grosskreutz added the third early in the second half in front of a crowd of nearly 80,000. Dortmund eased off after that and Hamburg, eighth last season, pulled one back through Robert Tesche.
