Borussia Dortmund are flying at the moment, after their manager, Peter Bosz, and American youngster, Christian Pulisic, both made history in their win in the Bundesliga on Wednesday.
Bosz became the first manager to guide his side to keep consecutive clean sheets in his first five matches in the history of the Bundesliga following their 3-0 defeat of Hamburg at Volksparkstadion.
While youngster, Pulisic became the scorer of Dortmund’s 3000th goal in the Bundesliga.
Bosz, who joined the Bundesliga leaders in the summer from Ajax as a replacement for Thomas Tuchel, has started life at Signal Iduna Park on a brilliant note.

His side are top of the league, having won four and drawn 1 in five games without conceding a goal, becoming the first manager to do so.
Dortmund beat Hamburg 3-0 thanks to goals from Shinji Kagawa, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Pulisic, whose goal also made him a history maker.
The 19-year-old American international scored the historic goal in the 79th minute, which was also the 13th in 5 games for Dortmund this season in the league.
The landmark night for the Black and Yellows started on a very dominant note, as they controlled proceedings at Volkspark, but were unable to find a breakthrough in the opening quarter of the game.
However, that changed when Kagawa found the back of the net in the 24th minute, as the visitors led 1-0 at the break.
After the restart, Bosz’s men continued from where they left off, but had to wait until just few minutes after the hour mark to double their advantage.
Aubameyang put Dortmund 2-0 up in the 63rd minute, after a beautiful piece of play by Pulisic and Yarmolenko, whose cross presented the 28-year-old Gabonese international the chance to tap in.
Pulisic completed the scoring in the 79th minute, when he added a historic third, his 9th goal in 60games for the club.
That goal sealed a beautiful win and a return to the top of the Bundesliga table for Bosz’s side, after it was temporarily occupied by Bayern Munich.
They are on 13points, just a point ahead of rivals, Bayern, who are second.
Next up for Bosz and his team of history makers is a clash with Borussia Mönchengladbach at the Signal Iduna Park on Saturday.
