Dortmund off to record start in Bundesliga

BVB have come flying out of the blocks to start the season, with Saturday's demolition of Monchengladbach setting some new high marks for the club

Borussia Dortmund have set a couple of new club records with their flying start to the 2017-18 season.

BVB have picked up five wins and a draw through their opening six matches, good enough to push them three points clear of Bayern Munich at the top of the table, and have conceded just one goal in the process.

Their points total of 16 is a club record through six matches and, with the club having netted 19 times, the current side has also set a new best for goal difference over that span at plus-18.

The German side's strong start to the campaign will be tested on Tuesday when they host Real Madrid in Champions League action before returning to the Bundesliga to take on Augsburg next Saturday.
