Video: Oliver Burke Sets Up RB Leipzig Winner v Dortmund on Debut

Oliver Burke made a big impact in his first game for RB Leipzig as they beat Borussia Dortmund tonight.

The Scottish winger moved from Nottingham Forest to the Bundesliga outfit in a surprising £13million transfer in the final week of the transfer window.

He’d only made 31 competitive appearances for Forest before getting the switch to the big-spending German side.

But Burke has wasted no time showing why they’ve spent a big chunk of money on him, coming off the bench to set up their winner against Dortmund.

The wideman was a 69th-minute substitute for Ralph Hasenhüttl’s men and impressed immediately with his attacking play.

But his decisive moment came in the final minute of normal time as took his man on before crossing for Naby Keita to hit high into the net:

Burke’s assist against Dortmund will be go a long way to help proving himself to the supporters of his new club.

And Gordon Strachan will certainly be happy to see his impact off the bench. Scotland have a big World Cup qualifying campaign ahead and the national team boss could do with a quality attacker playing in one of Europe’s best leagues.
