Batshuayi scores again as Dortmund win

After being out since tearing knee ligaments in last May's German Cup final, injury-prone Reus went straight into the Dortmund starting line-up but it was fellow forward Batshuayi who again stole the headlines. As promised, the Belgian striker celebrated with a somersault.

Dortmund lived dangerously with Hamburg threatening an equalizer, but substitute Mario Goetze sealed the win in injury time after Andre Schuerrle played him in to lift the ball over the onrushing goalkeeper.

HSV were superb in the first half to belie their disappointing league standing as Dortmund failed to register a shot on target before half-time.

His cross found Christian Pulisic, who slid the ball to the far post where Batshuayi, who signed on loan from Chelsea 10 days ago, scored into an empty net.

The move was completed following Aubameyang's switch to Arsenal, which in turn led to Olivier Giroud joining Chelsea, which had a knock-on effect for Batshuayi.

"I'm very happy, the most important thing is we won and remain high in the table", said Batshuayi with Dortmund third. "It gives us a bit of peace and quiet".
