Axel witsel scored with a bicycle kick as Borussia Dormund came from behind to kick off their Bundesliga season with a 4-1 victory over RB Leipzig.

Witsel - a close-season acquisition from Tianjin Quanjian - had already scored on debut in the DFB-Pokal on Monday and further endeared himself to the club's fans as they got their league campaign under way.

Jean-Kevin Augustin gave Leipzig the lead in the opening minute, sliding a shot beyond Roman Burki after a defensive mix-up by the hosts.

However, Mahmoud Dahoud pulled Dortmund level 20 minutes later when he adjusted his body brilliantly to head home a left-wing cross.

Marcel Sabitzer headed into his own net to hand Dortmund the lead five minutes from half-time, and Witsel's overhead kick from close range made it 3-1 at the break.

The second half looked set to pass without another goal being scored until Marco Reus capped off a counter attack by slotting past Gulacsi in stoppage time to record his 100th Bundesliga goal.
