German football giants Borussia Dortmund moved atop the standings after beating Eintracht Frankfurt 3-1 on the goals from Abdou Diallo, Marius Wolf and Paco Alcacer at the opener of the third round in Bundesliga.
After the restart, both sides staged a slow start into the second half. It was a goal out of the blue by Frankfurt's Sebastien Haller that gave the game momentum with 68 minutes played.
Lucien Favre's men remained unimpressed and responded well as substitute Jadon Sancho raced down the right wing to cross into the path of Marius Wolf, who slotted home against his former club from inside the box, making it 2-1 on the scoreboards four minutes later.
Dortmund continued on the front foot as Sancho set up for summer signing Paco Alcacer, who marked the 3-1 lead with a deflected effort to put the result beyond doubt from the edge of the box in the dying minutes of the game.
For now, Dortmund clinched the first place in the standings whereas the "Eagles" suffered their second straight loss to slip to the 10th position.
