Batshuayi strikes late for Dortmund to beat Frankfurt 3-2

Borussia Dortmund substitute Michy Batshuayi scored a last-gasp victor as they snatched a 3-2 home success over Eintracht Frankfurt in the Bundesliga yesterday to stay ahead of their opponents in the race for a Champions League spot.

Batshuayi scored two goals, including an injury-time victor to give Dortmund a priceless victory in the battle for a Champions League place.

Batshuayi quickly restored Dortmund's lead just 15 minutes after his introduction and the Belgian netted a last-gasp victor having seen Danny Blum level matters just three minutes earlier in stoppage time.

Dortmund hit back just two minutes later, Batshuayi linking up neatly with Pulisic before slotting the ball into the bottom corner. "I am pleased I could help the team because it was an important match against a strong team also competing for the Champions League spots".

Dortmund re-took the lead courtesy of a goal scored by Michy Batshuayi in the 77 minute, but that was canceled out after a 91st-minute strike from Danny Blum.

And the Belgium global admitted that because he had finally been starting in games, he lacked freshness in recent weeks. "The coach made this decision". I was not used to going 90 minutes all the time. "The coach decides. I was exhausted after the last games, so I came into the game fresh".

The three points moved Dortmund back to third in the Bundesliga standings.

The result lifted Dortmund to 45 points, one behind second-placed Schalke 04, one ahead of fourth-placed Bayer Leverkusen and three in front of Eintracht who have slipped to fifth.

Dortmund suffered a shock home loss to RB Salzburg in the Europa League on Thursday but bounced back in stunning fashion to extend Peter Stoger's unbeaten league run to 11 league matches.

He said: "It's clear that we will have a good setup for this position next season".

There was later drama to come, though, as Frankfurt thought they had snatched a share of the spoils in added time.

However, late last week, Dortmund already secured a crucial signature when Germany global Marco Reus signed a contract extension.

- Four of the five goals in this match were scored by substitutes - the most since Robert Lewandowski's five goals as a substitute against Wolfsburg in September 2015. CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke hopes the Germany worldwide will end his career at the Westfalenstadion.
