Dortmund ran wild for their second game in a row, this time dismantling Darmstadt 6-0, with five second half goals. Here are our player ratings!
Bürki 6: The Swiss goalkeeper had very little to do all game, as is usually the case when Dortmund have almost 80% possession.
Passlack 7: Should be starting over Lukasz Piszczek, and showed that again today. Not called on to defend often, but strong in possession.
Sokratis 7: Made sure Darmstadt did not score in the 20% percent of the game they had the ball.
Ginter 7: Deputized well for Bartra and got forward quite often. Solid performance for someone who has played center back for Dortmund only once in the past year.
Schmelzer 8: The captain was very involved in the attack on the left side. Got subbed off around the 60th minute presumably just for rest. He's played every game this season.
Weigl 7: He makes this team tick. Links the defense to attack beautifully, but made a big mistake with a poor touch in the box that nearly gave Darmstadt a goal.
Guerreiro 9: My man of the match. Another fantastic performance, but no assists or goals to show for it. At the center of nearly every creative move from Dortmund, and probably could've gotten on the scoresheet if he was not subbed off around the 60th minute.
Castro 9: Opened the scoring for us early on, then grabbed his second with a clever back heel finish. He's rebounded very well after his stinker against Leipzig, and another candidate for man of the match.
Pulisic 9: Another runner up to the man of the match award. The American was particularly explosive in the second half after Niemeyer's red card, grabbing a goal and two assists, while creating much, much more.
Dembele 7: His first half wasn't the best, but still provided the assist for the opening goal. His passing is improving, and he played a great ball to create the third goal.
Ramos 8: Continues to impress when he plays in place of Aubameyang and played a big goal in creating multiples goals. He got himself on the scoresheet too, and deserves more credit than he usually gets.
Mor 8: Every time this kid touches ball, you can see his talent. He dances brilliantly around defenders and isn't afraid to shoot. He scored his first goal for Dortmund, and there should be a lot more to come.
Kagawa 6: Honestly did not notice much from Kagawa in his 25 minute appearance. Nearly scored a goal, but that's all I can remember.
Rode 7: Came on for the last 20 minutes and scored with a cheeky back heel flick. Despite a dud versus Leipzig, Rode is still an important player for Dortmund who we will see much more of.
