Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang enjoyed an outstanding start to his Bundesliga career, hitting a hat trick in Borussia Dortmund’s 4-0 trouncing of lowly Augsburg in the BVB’s opening game of the season. Aubameyang, a Gabon international, joined Dortmund from Ligue 1 club St. Etienne for a reported $17.3 million last month.

The 24-year-old forward opened the scoring in the 24th-minute with a diving header and slotted home from the left midway through the second half, before completing his hat trick by rounding Augsburg keeper Mohamed Amsif 11 minutes from time following a fantastic Robert Lewandowski pass. Lewandowski completed the rout with an 86th-minute penalty.
