"In attack, we were very good, but we didn't concentrate very well in defence. At the end, everything worked well and I am very pleased with the result," Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp said.

His team have already set a new record for the longest unbeaten run in a German season and now have their sights set on overhauling Bayern Munich's record points tally of 79 achieved twice in the 1970s.

A goalless draw for Moenchengladbach against Augsburg ensures fourth place and a Champions League play-off place.
