The Algeria international put his side ahead with a strike on the 65th minute.

Bentaleb completed a loan move to the Bundesliga giants in the summer until the end of the season.
He has featured regularly for the side, playing all seven of their league fixtures and two Europa League clashes since joining.
However, the seven-time league winners have struggled in the new campaign as they currently sit in the relegation spots with just four points from their opening encounters.
It also looks unlikely that Bentaleb will get improved game time when he does eventually return to Tottenham.
The north London club brought in midfielder Victor Wanyama in the summer, who has started his career at White Hart Lane in impressive form, while also boasting Eric Dier and Mousa Dembele in the defensive midfield roles.
