Robert Lewandowski scores twice for Borussia Dortmund as they defeat Hannover 3-1 at home in the Bundesliga.

Borussia Dortmund have registered a comfortable 3-1 victory over Hannover at home in the Bundesliga.

Jurgen Klopp's side went ahead after just eight minutes through Robert Lewandowski, who shot home Kevin Grosskreutz's cross from close range.

The Polish striker doubled his side's lead on 21 minutes when he tucked home the rebound after Ron-Robert Zieler had failed to clear Grosskreutz's effort.

Mohammed Abdellaoue halved the deficit for Hannover when he reacted the quickest to a Felipe Santana header that came off the Dortmund crossbar.

Ilkay Gundogan went close with a half-volley from the edge of the area in the opening minutes of the second half, before Lewandowski dragged his attempt wide.

Lewandowski could have completed his hat-trick as the match progressed and Mario Gotze too had a good chance on 68 minutes.

It was Julian Schieber who finished the match as a contest on 72 minutes when he smashed home Jakub Blaszczykowski's pass to make it 3-1 to Dortmund.
