Borussia Dortmund’s superb season so far has made for some great storylines, from Paco Alcacer – the supersub who can’t stop scoring – to Jadon Sancho – the 18-year-old who can do no wrong. But have you heard the one about the invincible Achraf Hakimi? (English, photo: dpa)

Achraf Hakimi is enjoying a fruitful spell on loan at Borussia Dortmund from Real Madrid this season. The 20-year-old right-back is one of the key components in Lucien Favre’s table-topping side looking to beat Bayern Munich to the Bundesliga title.

The team showed that they are more than capable of compensating for the absence of one of their most important players, while also demonstrating that they are able to plug the gap caused by personnel absences in the heart of defensive. What is more, the squad proved that they remain true to their maxim of taking each game as it comes. (English, photo: dpa)
