Batshuayi relieved after breaking Borussia Dortmund dry spell with match-winning double

KP Boateng rues Bundesliga defeat to Borussia Dortmund

A Marco Russ own goal put Dortmund ahead early on but Luka Jovic equalised with 15 minutes left.

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. They are third on 45 points, three above fifth-placed Frankfurt.

Michy Batshuayi said he was delighted to help Borussia Dortmund take all three points at home after he scored a brace, including the last-gasp victor, as he came off the bench in the 3-2 win over Eintracht Frankfurt on Sunday night.

But Batshuayi, dropped to the bench after five games without a goal in all competitions, could not argue with Stoger's decision to leave him out.

"When you get the equalizer in injury time, you shouldn't then concede the victor in injury time", said Frankfurt coach Niko Kovac, whose side dropped three points behind Dortmund with eight games remaining.

The Belgium worldwide has now scored seven goals in nine games since joining Dortmund in January.

Dortmund were given a huge boost ahead of kick-off by the news that talisman Marco Reus had signed a contract extension to keep him at his boyhood club until 2023.

Resurgent in the second half, Frankfurt finally found an equaliser on 75 minutes.

In the Frenchman's absence, Sanchez was moved inside to create space for Rashford to tear Liverpool apart down United's left. Either way, Mourinho will upset an important player but, on this evidence, he can not leave his match-winner on the bench.

Kevin-Prince Boateng drew a smart save from Dortmund's Roman Buerki after the break, and the visitors maintained their pressure.

But Dortmund haven't set the world alight under the former Cologne coach, who replaced Peter Bosz before Christmas.

But Batshuayi wasn't finished and took advantage of a exhausted Frankfurt offside trap to score an even later victor and give Dortmund an invaluable three points in the battle to qualify for the Champions League.

Schurrle and Reus then failed to test Lucas Hradecky with their respective efforts in the space of a minute around the midway point in the first half, while Dahoud drew the Finnish keeper into a routine save on the half-hour mark with a dipping strike from outside the box, having spun away from two markers to open up space.

"I wasn't angry [about not starting]", he said.

The best chance fell to Leipzig just before half-time, Werner breaking free of the defence but failing to lob Ron-Robert Zieler in the Stuttgart goal.

The draw extends Leipzig's winless run to four league games, and leaves them four points behind the Champions League spots.
