What a race we've got at the top of the Bundesliga scoring charts now. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang got his 22nd league goal of the season in stoppage time to clinch a 3-1 victory for Dortmund against Hoffenheim. Bayern Munich's Robert Lewandowski leads the league with 23 goals.

Down 2-1 and down a man in the final minutes, Julian Nagelsmann's men pushed forward trying to steal an equalizer and a draw. Their defenders were punished on this goal when they were caught out while trying to keep a high line. With the Hoffenheim defenders all at midfield, Adrian Ramos simply looped the ball over them into space for Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Mkhitaryan, who scored Dortmund's first goal of the game, was very unselfish in squaring the ball for Aubameyang to tap into the net. The Gabonese striker recognized the gift he'd been given and immediately sprinted over to Mkhitaryan to celebrate. It was a truly beautiful way to cap off what was a relieving and impressive victory.
