Borussia Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Bürki is hoping their his teammate Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang can continue his scoring form for the German club.

The Gabon international Aubameyang opened the scoring for Dortmund as they drew 1-1 with their rivals Schalke 04 in the German Bundesliga match on Saturday.

Swiss shot-stopper Bürki says he always knew that they would score despite missing several chances at the VELTINS-Arena in Gelsenkirchen.

"No, not at all," Bürki told Bundesliga's official website.

"We've got so much quality in our attack, and I always say that the most difficult part of football can be scoring goals.

"It was no different in this game against Schalke. I'm glad that Auba got one and hopefully he'll get another in our next game," he added.

"It was just a pity in the end that we couldn't get that second goal straight after our first.

"But I've got no fears about our attack losing its sharpness."

Aubameyang, 27, has netted in Dortmund's last seven matches in all competitions. He's the joint Bundesliga top goalscorer with 24 goals.

Dortmund will host Hamburg in a league game at the Signal-Iduna-Park on Tuesday evening.
