He has scored 82 goals in 152 Bundesliga matches, 14 goals in 23 German Cup games and 21 goals in 53 Champions League matches, including the winning goal against Borussia Dortmund in the 2013 Champions League final.
Marco Reus and Mario Gotze found the net as Borussia Dortmund cruised to a resounding 6-1 friendly romp over third-tier Paderborn on Tuesday. It has been a productive mid-season break for Thomas Tuchel's side, who have also enjoyed comfortable wins over PSV and Standard Liege before a return to Bundesliga action at Werder Bremen on Saturday. The only sour note of Tuesday's victory was an injury to Sven Bender, who had to limp off after 19 minutes with an apparent ankle problem following a heavy challenge from Sven Michel.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and hosts Gabon vowed to put a poor start to their Africa Cup of Nations behind them and beat Burkina Faso on Wednesday in the second series of Group A matches.

Former African Footballer of the Year Aubameyang put the home team ahead with a tap-in only for Juary Soares to nod the leveller off a free-kick.
