Berlin: Borussia Dortmund maintained their winning start to the year with a 3-0 victory over Nuremberg in the Bundesliga on Friday.

Jakub Blaszczykowski converted a penalty in the 18th minute after Poland teammate Lukasz Piszczek fell easily under Timo Gebhart's challenge, and then made it 2-0 three minutes later thanks to Mario Goetze's cross.

Dortmund coach Juergen Klopp said his team was a bit fortunate to build the early lead.
