Achraf Plays Full 90 in Dortmund?s 2 - 0 Loss to Atletico



The Moroccan struggled defensively After playing as Dortmund?s right back against Wolfsburg on Saturday, Achraf Hakimi resumed his left-back post (where Lucien Favre seems to prefer him) against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League on Tuesday night.
Dortmund, who blew Atletico away with a 4-0 scoreline (a game in which Achraf had a hat-trick of assists) about a fortnight ago, faced a much improved side today. Simeone lined up his usual 4-4-2, happily ceding possession and not pressing high ? looking to secure the space on the flanks which Achraf so happily feasted on in the previous fixture. Dortmund patiently recycled possession, with Achraf seeing a lot of the ball; and Favre?s men seemed unbothered about keeping the ball without being incisive. But they really didn?t create anything, and that became a huge problem for them when Atletico went ahead, giving them even more confidence to close defensive channels without taking unnecessary gambles ? just the way Simeone likes it. Christian Pulisic just let Saul walk into this goal:
