Borussia Dortmund's attack had been clicking on all cylinders, with the club having scored 17 goals in its last three matches entering Friday's Bundesliga game vs. Freiburg, and it showed no signs of slowing down.
To cap a 3-1 victory, Raphael Guerreiro finished off a gorgeous passing sequence in tight spacing inside the Freiburg box, one which involved two back-heel passes in quick succession before the Portuguese left back finished for his third goal in four matches.

The goal followed scores by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Lukasz Piszczek, taking Dortmund's tally to 20 goals in four matches and pulling the club provisionally even with Bayern Munich atop the league (Bayern plays Hamburg on Saturday).
After making three straight starts, USA's Christian Pulisic came off the bench for Dortmund in the 64th minute. He nearly set up Aubameyang for goals on a couple of occasions, and he had a low shot in stoppage time saved.
Dortmund will hope its high-flying attack is in full force again on Tuesday, when the club hosts Real Madrid in a mouthwatering Champions League group match. Both clubs won their Group F openers, with Dortmund crushing Legia Warsaw 6-0 and Real Madrid squeaking by Sporting Lisbon 2-1 after a late comeback.
