Stuttgart 2-3 Borussia Dortmund
The big names are producing as BVB kept moving clear of relegation fears with a big road win against fellow relegation threats Stuttgart.

The UEFA Champions League side got goals from Ilkay Gundogan, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Marco Reus, while Florian Klein and George Niedermeier scored for the hosts.

In the relegation zone for most of the season, BVB’s third-straight victory has it within a remarkable three points of the top half of the table.
