Michy Batshuayi Scores Brace and Assists One in Dream Debut

Published

on

Michy Batshuayi ensured Borussia Dortmund moved on from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang with an amazing performance in a thrilling match against Cologne.

While, manager Peter Stoger was returning to the club which sacked him earlier in the campaign.

This match was always going to be an epic with two sides whose defences are so unreliable, they are forced to attack — and it certainly lived up to expectation.

It was Dortmund who struck first with debutant Batshuayi making it 1-0 on 36 minutes — tapping home from inside the six-yard box.

And he thought he’d got his second moments before half-time when Julian Toljan’s effort hit the Belgian and went in.

However, as the Belgian was celebrating, the referee consulted VAR and chalked it off, much to the confusion of Batshuayi who appeared to to only find out as he was walking down the tunnel.

Cologne levelled on 59 minutes when Simon Zoller headed past a stricken Roman Burki.

However, less than 60 seconds later, Batshuayi had restored Dortmund’s lead when he raced through to slot past Timo Horn.

Yet that still wasn’t enough as Dortmund’s defence let them again when Jorge Mere headed home a second equaliser.

Cologne had been on a decent run recently as they look to complete a miraculous recovery from relegation.

Seeing an opportunity, they pressed for the winner — but were ultimately caught on the counter-attack.

Former Manchester City teen Jadon Sancho showed expert composure to pick out Batshuayi, who played in Andre Schurrle to fire home an 83rd-minute winner.
