DORTMUND, Germany – Spain’s Paco Alcacer had an auspicious Bundesliga debut on Friday for Borussia Dortmund, contributing a goal in a 3-1 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt.
On loan from Barcelona, Alcacer took the field in the 67th minute as a replacement for Maximilian Phillipp and scored in the dying moments of regulation to seal the win for the hosts.
Abdou Diallo put Dortmund ahead in the 36th minute, exploiting the passivity of the Frankfurt defense, which stood by as the Frenchman converted on his second try after keeper Kevin Trapp made the initial stop.
Frankfurt pulled level in the 68th minute with a goal by Sebastien Haller, assisted by Danny da Costa.
The home side was quick to react and Marius Wolf made it 2-1 for Dortmund with a strike in the 72nd minute, followed in the 88th minute by Alcacer’s insurance goal.
The victory leaves Dortmund with 7 points from three matches, enough for first place in the Bundesliga, though defending champions Bayern Munich and three other clubs each have 6 points and a game in hand.
Frankfurt is 10th, with 3 points.
