Batshuayi scores twice on Dortmund debut

Belgian striker, Michy Batshuayi marked his debut for Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund with two goals.

The on-loan Chelsea striker scored twice as Dortmund came out 3-2 winners in their league game against Cologne on Friday.

Batshuayi, who will be at the club until the end of the season, swept home in the first half before adding a second on the hour mark with a clinical finish.

The goals came either side of a Simon Ziller strike before Jorge Mere equalised for the hosts.

But Batshuayi then set up Andre Schurrle to give Dortmund victory.

The win moves Dortmund up to second in the Bundesliga, six points behind leader Bayern Munich who have a game in hand.
