The Gabon global scored twice on Saturday to help Dortmund to a thrilling 4-3 win over Werder Bremen in their final Bundesliga match of the season and claim the top-scorer prize for the campaign with 31 goals.

Champions Bayern Munich provided a fitting farewell for retiring captain Philipp Lahm and Spaniard Xabi Alonso with a 4-1 victory over Freiburg to wrap up their runaway fifth successive title triumph by 15 points.

The Gabon worldwide put Dortmund 2-1 up at Signal Iduna Park with a spectacular volley from Ousmane Dembele's chipped pass, then converted a late penalty to seal the points for Dortmund.

They secured the three points - but it required an 89th-minute penalty from top scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to defeat an away side that had led twice. "It was a great effort - made by the whole team. I will talk to the club next week and then decide", he said. His season ends with 31 goals and two assists in 31 league appearances.

Aubameyang's late strike was enough for Dortmund to secure their automatic Champions League group stage spot. "Now we want to crown the season next week (with the German Cup win)". We reached third place and qualified directly for the Champions League, that was our goal.

Speculation over the forward's future has been rife, with uncertainty for the best part of two years, but it seems as though Aubameyang has purposefully taken a nose dive into controversy with his comments after receiving his much deserved Golden Boot award. "That is pretty impressive".
