Soccer-Dortmund stage late comeback to beat Cologne 3-1

Borussia Dortmund fought back to beat Cologne 3-1 away with late goals from substitute Achraf Hakimi and Paco Alcacer to make it two wins out of two in the Bundesliga this season.

The visitors were a shadow of the team that put five goals past Augsburg in the season opener last week and only came to life midway into the second half, scoring three times in the last 20 minutes.Cologne’s Dominick Drexler opened the scoring by nodding home at the far post just before the half-hour with the hosts looking far more aggressive than Dortmund, who fell behind for the second consecutive league game.

A Marco Reus free kick was Dortmund’s best chance in the first half and they had to wait until the 70th minute for Jadon Sancho’s equaliser, his second goal in two league games.Hakimi then rose above two defenders to head in a pinpoint Lukasz Piszczek cross at the far post to put them 2-1 ahead as Dortmund found a way past the tiring Cologne defence.
