Borussia Dortmund's Marco Reus scored twice in a 3-1 victory at Werder Bremen on Saturday that allowed his team to close to within five points of Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich.
Reus, back in top form after an injury-hit season start, struck twice for the second consecutive week.
Dortmund are in second place on 26 points, five behind Bayern, who dropped their first points of the season after 10 straight wins with a goalless draw at Eintracht Frankfurt on Friday.
Germany international Reus put the visitors ahead in the ninth minute before snubbed Nigerian forward Anthony Ujah slotted in from a goalmouth scramble to level in the 32nd.
Dortmund central defender Mats Hummels provided a sublime assist, curling the ball with the outside of his right foot to the far post for Henrikh Mkhitaryan who headed in for the lead a minute from half-time.
Gabon Striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who is the league top scorer with 13 goals should have scored at least twice more for Dortmund early in the second half but wasted golden opportunities before Reus was picked out by Mikhitaryan to fire in from a tight angle and seal their third consecutive victory in the Bundesliga.
