Michy Batshuayi on target again to keep Borussia Dortmund in top three

Borussia Dortmund's Michy Batshuayi scored a spectacular first-half winner to lead his team to a 1-0 home victory over Hanover 96 on Sunday that kept them on course for a top-three Bundesliga finish.

The 24-year-old Belgium striker, who arrived on loan from Chelsea in January, grabbed his sixth Bundesliga goal in seven games with an eye-catching backheeled volley in the 24th minute from a corner.

Batshuayi also hit the woodwork at the start of the game as did team mate Maximilian Philipp late on.

It was by no means a dominant performance from Dortmund, who exited the Europa League in midweek, but it was enough to lift them to 48 points, one behind second-placed Schalke 04, with seven matches left in the season.

Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich, top on 66, take on RB Leipzig later on Sunday.
