Nuri Sahin and Jakub Blaszczykowski score for Borussia Dortmund as they beat Fortuna Dusseldorf 2-1 away from home in the Bundesliga.

Borussia Dortmund have defeated Fortuna Dusseldorf 2-1 away from home in the Bundesliga.

Last season's German champions took the lead at the Esprit Arena in the 20th minute when Nuri Sahin fired home from 30 yards after being teed up by Moritz Leitner.

Dortmund continued to dominate proceedings but could have conceded the equaliser just three minutes into the second half had Sebastian Kehl not diverted Ken Ilso's shot on target.

Jurgen Klopp's side survived another scare in the 65th minute when Axel Bellinghausen dragged his effort wide from just yards out.

Five minutes later Dortmund punished Dusseldorf for not taking their chances, as Jakub Blaszczykowski latched onto Sahin's pass to slot home.

Dusseldorf were controversially denied a penalty minutes later when Mats Hummels handled Stefan Reisinger's shot inside the Dortmund area.

Julian Schieber and Marco Reus came close for the visitors, before Adam Bodzek pulled one back for the hosts in the 88th minute when he headed home Bellinghausen's delivery.
