Gio Reyna (7/10)
Reyna delivered an encouraging display after being given the opportunity to start for the second game running. He played his part in the winning goal, made some clever plays, and also looked much more at home playing in the number ten role.
Jamie Bynoe-Gittens (7/10)
Bynoe-Gittens was lively and direct, causing havoc in and around the Hoffenheim box time and time again. At times, it appeared as though he was trying too hard. But he helped set up the winning goal, and nearly added to that with a goal and an assist in the second-half.
Ihlas Bebou had a nightmare time defending against Bynoe-Gittens, and must have been relieved when he was finally subbed off in the second-half. The young Englishman’s performance certainly showed that he deserves more playing time.
Youssoufa Moukoko (6/10)
Making his first start of the season, Moukoko was heavily involved in Borussia Dortmund’s attacking play. He had his chances to score as well and will be disappointed that he didn’t end up finding the back of the net. But he showed why BVB would be foolish to let him leave permanently.
