Batshuayi makes dream debut in Dortmund win at Cologne
New signing Michy Batshuayi enjoyed a dream debut at Borussia Dortmund, scoring twice on Friday as his club edged Cologne 3-2 to move into second place in the Bundesliga. Andre Schuerrle made sure of Dortmund's first league win of the year with an 84th minute winner after Cologne twice had come back from a goal down. Dortmund are second on 34 points, ahead of Bayer Leverkusen and Schalke 04 on goal difference. Batshuayi arrived on Wednesday on loan from Chelsea to plug the gap left by the departure of last season's Bundesliga top scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to Arsenal in the Premier League. Dortmund coach Peter Stoeger, returning to Cologne only 61 days after his sacking, gave the 20-year-old Belgium international his first start and the player paid him back when he scored in the 35th minute for the lead. He thought he scored again on the stroke of halftime but his effort was ruled off side after the use of the video assistant referee. Cologne levelled on the hour when Roman Buerki cleared a shot and Simon Zoller nodded in on the rebound but Batshuayi responded only two minute later, pouncing on a defensive error to slot in. Bottom club Cologne refused to give up and thought they had done enough to earn a point with Jorge Mere's 70th minute header before Schuerrle unleashed an unstoppable shot into the top corner six minutes from time to earn Dortmund their first three points of 2018. RESULTS: Cologne 2 (Zoller 60, Jorge Mere 69) Borussia Dortmund 3 (Batshuayi 35, 62, Schuerrle 84)
