  • Sancho made history with both goals, as Dortmund claimed a 2-1 victory

Jadon Sancho scored twice, making him the youngest player ever to score 11 Bundesliga goals, while Borussia defeated Dortmund Mainz to get to the top of the list.

The 19-year-old hit half a volleyball from Mario Gotze's cross for the first time and gave them a lead in the 17th minute on Saturday.

Sancho, lined with a summer move to Manchester United, made it 2-0 seven minutes later with a deflected strike.

Robin Quaison gave Mainz a lifeline by scoring after 83 minutes and Dortmund was grateful for a triple save by goalkeeper Roman Burki to secure the victory.

Dortmund, eager to make up for Bayern's 5-0 demolition last week, started a whirlwind and Mainz almost scored an own goal when Danny Latza caught a Mario Goetze kick back on the post in the sixth minute.

Jacob Bruun Larsen came close twice before Goetze tried again in the 17th minute and found England's international Sancho, who pulled the lead.

The 19-year-old doubled the score in the same way in the 24th minute, while assisting Thomas Delaney for his 10th goal of the campaign.

Instead of scoring again, the hosts decreased after the break, allowing Mainz, who had hit the post, to come forward.

The visitors hit the wood again with Karim Onisiwo after 63 minutes and cut the deficit with Robin Quaison's deserved goal after 83 minutes for Dortmund keeper Roman Buerki made a three-point blank save in the 87th to protect Dortmund's three runs.
