Borussia Dortmund

Jude Bellingham's double helped Borussia Dortmund to a stunning 6-0 win over Wolfsburg on Sunday, keeping the Bundesliga title race on a knife-edge with just three games remaining.

The 17-year-old scored twice in the second half as Dortmund delivered a statement victory over Wolfsburg to maintain their hopes of a first title in 11 years.

The win means Edin Terzic's team is just one point behind league leaders Bayern Munich, who narrowly beat Werder Bremen 2-1 on Saturday.

After the game, Dortmund midfielder Emre Can said, "It's not over yet. We need to win all our games and see what happens, but the belief is definitely still there."

Can also praised Bellingham and fellow goalscorer Karim Adeyemi, saying, "They both have the quality to score goals, and they showed that today."

Bellingham, who has been linked with a move to Real Madrid in recent days, now has 13 goals in all competitions this season.

His performance on Sunday further cemented his status as one of Europe's brightest young talents.

Dortmund took the lead after just 14 minutes when Adeyemi headed Julian Ryerson's deflected cross expertly under the bar. Wolfsburg had chances to equalize, but Patrick Wimmer fired the ball straight at Dortmund keeper Gregor Kobel, and Donyell Malen wasted a golden opportunity on the counter-attack.

Dortmund doubled their lead just before the half-hour mark when Sebastien Haller tapped in after Mats Hummels won the ball back brilliantly in midfield, and Adeyemi found him with a fizzing low cross.

Bellingham then took over in the second half, scoring twice to cap off a dominant performance by Dortmund.

With just three games to go, the race for the Bundesliga title is heating up, and Dortmund's win on Sunday has set up a thrilling finish to the season.
