Aubameyang finishes as top scorer after firing Dortmund into UCL

Gabonese star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang netted a brace on Saturday as German giants, Borussia Dortmund beat Werder Bremen 4-3 to seal a direct Champions League spot on the final day of the season.

Aubameyang, who scored a total of 31 league goals, finished as top scorer in the campaign, trailed by Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski, who having 30 before Saturday, failed to score in their 4-1 home win over Freiburg.

The 27-year old former African footballer of the year score first on 42 minutes with a superb volley and made it double when he converted a spot kick late in the second half in the 7-goal thriller to take the Golden Cannon as the league’s top scorer.

As it stands, Champions, Bayern Munich, RB Leipzig and Dortmund have their place in next season’s Champions League, while fourth-placed Hoffenheim, who were held to a goalless draw at home to Augsburg, secured a Champions League play-off place.
