Michy Batshuayi came off the bench to score a stoppage time winner as Borussia Dortmund snatched a dramatic 3-2 victory over top six rivals Eintracht Frankfurt on Sunday.

Danny Blum looked to have sealed a draw for Frankfurt with an equaliser a minute into time added on, but Batshuayi had the last word with his second goal two minutes later.

The win kept Dortmund in third place, while in Sunday’s other game RB Leipzig were held to a 0-0 draw at Stuttgart that prevented them from breaking into the top four.

Kevin-Prince Boateng nearly scored with a clever backheel just after half-time, but was denied by Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Burki.
