Following the Borussia Dortmund (BVB)-Hannover 96 German Bundesliga Week 9 match, Der Westen assessed the performances of the BVB players.
The German daily gave a high evaluation to Armenia national football squad and Dortmund midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s performance in the game.
“Solely Henrikh Mkhitaryan and [Germany international and BVB midfielder] Marco Reus were persistently fighting against Dortmund’s gradually growing crisis.
“After the Champions League match against Galatasaray [S.K. (Turkey)], Mkhitaryan was trying to repeat the Istanbul success, which he partially succeeded in.
“Henrikh was attacking actively, creating the rhythm of the game, but we was unlucky at some moments,” Der Westen wrote.
Borussia Dortmund suffered their fourth straight Bundesliga defeat. The Armenia international was in BVB’s starting eleven and he played the entire game. In the second half, Mkhitaryan had an altercation with Hannover’s Turkish midfielder Ceyhun Gülselam, and, as a result, both players received yellow cards.
