BERLIN, Aug. 29 (Xinhua) -- Dortmund dominated the game but nearly had to share the spoils with resilient Augsburg at the opener of the second round of Bundesliga on Friday.

Dortmund wrapped up their first win at the second match of the season as they overcome Augsburg 3-2.

The "BVB" dominated the game for eighty minutes but with the 3-0 lead behind Augsburg frenetically fought back. However, the goals by Raul Bobadilla and Tim Matavz within eight minutes were not enough to restore parity for the hosts as Dortmund pulled through.

Juergen Klopp's men secured a perfect start on the road as Marco Reus broke the deadlock with eleven minutes on the clock. The German international, who recently returned from an injury break, made use of a one-two with Kevin Grosskreutz to slot home from inside the box.

Augsburg wobbled while the visitors utilized their momentum to double the lead just three minutes later through defender Sokratis. The Greek international headed home a corner by Reus from the goal area.

Dortmund controlled the proceedings on the pitch but handed over control at the second half. Augsburg gained a foothold into the game but lacked in penetration against Dortmund'swell- positioned defence.

Nevertheless, it was clinical Dortmund who tripled the lead, against the run of the game, when substitute Adrian Ramos scored five minutes after his fielding.

Dortmund's third goal looked like a decider but it was not, as Augsburg fought back in the last ten minutes of the game. The hosts reduced the lead through substitute Raul Bobadilla, who reduced the lead to 3-1 before Tim Matavz flabbergasted the visitors reducing the arrears to 3-2 at the 90th minute

Augsburg sniffed the chance to snatch one point on home soil but Dortmund killed the game to inflict the hosts the second straight loss.

The following matches are scheduled for Saturday: Leverkusen see Berlin, Wolfsburg face Frankfurt, Bremen meet Hoffenheim, newly promoted Cologne visit Stuttgart, Hamburg host newly promoted Paderborn and Schalke encounter Bayern Munich.
