Borussia Dortmund wing-back Achraf Hakimi has been nominated for the Champions League Player of the Week award.

The result left Dortmund second in the group on seven points from four games, one behind leaders Barcelona and three ahead of third-placed Inter.

Through hard work we can cause anyone problems. "We defended too deep in the second half and struggled to keep the ball well. We've reached the limit".

'Apart from [Diego] Godin no one has won anything, ' said the Inter boss. Hence, the visitors were able to doubled their advantage before the break as Antonio Candreva's square pass found Matias Vecino, who made no mistake to make the most out of Inter's second clearcut opportunity. "Or (Stefano) Sensi, who came from Sassuolo?" I just have to thank the boys for what they're giving me at the moment.

"We had a lot of possession, put a lot of tempo into our game, prevented them from counter-attacking and that was the key".
