LEIPZIG, Germany: Donyell Malen scored a brace as Borussia Dortmund beat Cologne 4-0 on Saturday in a match delayed for eight minutes after protesting fans threw chocolate coins in gold foil onto the pitch.
Malen curled in a Julian Brandt cross to give Dortmund the lead after 12 minutes, immediately before supporters of both sides began their planned protest action.
Fans objected to the German FA’s decision to allow greater foreign investment in the game, with players from both sides working alongside stadium attendants to remove the coins from the pitch.
