Swedish teenager Alexander Isak shone for holders Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday in their 5-0 German Cup second-round romp at third-division Magdeburg.

Alexander Isak is proving right those who saw a future star in him. The Swedish teenager, who was linked with Real Madrid before signing for Borussia Dortmund, scored and set up a goal on his first start for the club in their 5-0 German Cup second-round romp at third-division Magdeburg.

Borussia Dortmund see him as his future forward

Isak signed in January from Stockholm club AIK for a reported nine million euros. Dortmund hope the Sweden international, who had previously only made four substitute appearances for the side, can grow to become Aubameyang's future replacement.

Isak laid on a goal for Gonzalo Castro, who scored with his first touch of the ball on 42 minutes, then showed ice-cool finishing by slotting home on 47 minutes. The floodgates opened in the final 16 minutes as Ukraine winger Andriy Yarmolenko converted a penalty after a handball as Magdeburg's defence tired. Defender Marc Bartra netted a header before Shinji Kagawa added a fifth on 90 minutes.

This was Dortmund's first win in four games having seen their five-point lead evaporate in the Bundesliga, but they stay top of the league on goal difference from Bayern Munich. Dortmund coach Peter Bosz made seven changes from the side which 2-2 drew at Eintracht Frankfurt last Saturday. Captain Marcel Schmelzer made his first start after six weeks out with a leg injury, while Germany winger André Schürrle came on for Isak late on to make his comeback after injury in August.

RB Leipzig and Bayern Munich will play for a place in the next round

Schalke are also into the third round after their 3-1 win at third-division Wehen WI, while Eintracht Frankfurt enjoyed a 4-0 thrashing of fourth-tier Schweinfurt. The plum tie of the round takes place on Wednesday when RB Leipzig host Bayern Munich in a clash of last season's Bundesliga top two.
