Borussia D won with the score 2:1 and fixed on the top of the standings.

Kagawa's 38 goals put the former Cerezo Osaka midfielder one ahead of Shinji Okazaki, who played for Stuttgart and Mainz before leaving for English Premier League side Leicester in 2015.

Bosz's side appeared in rampant form but was pegged back six minutes later as Caiuby applied a headed finish to Philipp Max's superb cross from the left. Only Dortmund and Hannover have allowed fewer goals than Augsburg this season.

The Japanese worldwide then floated the corner in and after the ball pinballed around the penalty area, Andriy Yarmolenko found the ball at his feet and the Ukranian sent a backheeled effort beyond Augsburg's stranded goalkeeper to give Dortmund an early lead.

But Gators receiver Dre Massey recovered the onside kick, and Davis exploded for a 39-yard, fourth-down touchdown rush to seal it. He began his collegiate career at the University of Alabama, but transferred to Oregon State University after one season.

Dortmund's Japenese playmaker was once again involved for the visitors, restoring Dortmund's lead with a magnificent chip. "In the first half we had the spaces but played bad football".

Dortmund's level dropped considerably in the face of a spirited showing from the hosts during the second half while a farcical penalty miss compounded a wretched outing for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and set up an unnecessarily nervous finale.

Aubameyang should have made it three when he sprung the Augsburg offside trap but an array of step-overs did not distract Hitz, who also reacted well to keep Mahmoud Dahoud's deflected 44th-minute effort out of the bottom right corner. Dortmund are first after six games with 16 points.

Five points separate Augsburg and Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga table. The Dortmund striker's chipped penalty went all wrong and was saved by Hitz. Dortmund were able to hold onto their narrow lead and claim all three points despite the enormous pressure from Augsburg.
