Cologne 2 – 3 Borussia Dortmund
(Zoller 60′, Mere 70′ — Batshuayi 33′, 62′, Schürrle 84′)
Only an offside call denied Belgian striker Michy Batshuayi a debut hat trick for Borussia Dortmund. The loanee from Chelsea opened the scoring and also immediately restored Dortmund’s lead after the first of two Cologne equalizers. On the second of the three occasions he found the net, just before the break, his goal was disallowed because a teammate was in an offside position.
“I am very happy. But the main reason I’m happy is the win,” Batshuayi told Eurosport afterwards, adding that it was a difficult first game.
