BERLIN - Borussia Dortmund maintained its 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.

Robert Lewandowski had a goal ruled out for offside before the break, and was denied by Nuremberg goalkeeper Raphael Schaefer 15 minutes into the second half.

The home side continued to waste chances, but Lewandowski finally scored with two minutes remaining, when Marco Reus found the Poland striker to unleash an unstoppable effort past Schaefer.

Dortmund moved provisionally second on goal difference ahead of the rest of the weekend's games, nine points behind Bayern Munich.
