Berlin, April 29 (IANS) German football club Borussia Dortmund extended their unbeaten run to 27 matches following a thumping 5-2 win over relegated team Kaiserslautern in the 33rd round of Bundesliga.
The newly crowned Bundesliga champions earned their first away win at Fritz Walter Stadium in 11 years Saturday owing to a hat-trick from striker Lucas Barrios.
