Last season was a write-off for Borussia Dortmund. A side that won back to back titles in 2011 and 2012 as well as appearing in the 2013 Champions League final, Dortmund only made their way out of the relegation zone in Germany in February of last season with four consecutive wins.
In April the club announced that Thomas Tuchel would be taking over from Jurgen Klopp following his resignation, and since then the black and yellow have been on a rampage, banging in goals left right and centre on their way back to a lofty position in the Bundesliga, second only to Pep Guardiola's Bayern juggernaut who have yet to drop a single point in the league so far.
Their resurgence truly hit home tonight after they defeated Paderborn 7-1, to which Squawka point out this impressive feat:

But more impressive is their strike rate in all competitions, which proves that the lightning quick attack they became famous for has been well and truly restored to full power under Tuchel:
Borussia Dortmund have now scored 61 goals this season in just 19 games.

Yikes. BVB are averaging three goals a game.
The style in which they are playing is incredibly enjoyable to watch too, as can be seen by Shinji Kagawa's classy finish of a lovely move to make the score 3-1:
Funnily enough they went 1-0 down tonight before hitting 7 without reply.
If they can hold on to Marco Reus and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang next season they will be a force to be reckoned with in the Champions League.
