The Morocco international could be rewarded for his imperious performance for BVB against the Black and Blues

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

The 21-year-old scored twice to inspire his German side to a 3-2 comeback victory against Inter Milan at Signal Iduna Park on Tuesday night.

His impressive performance in the encounter has not gone unnoticed, having been shortlisted for the best player of the week under review.

Hakimi will compete with Tottenham Hotspur forward Son Heung-min, Real Madrid youngster Rodrygo and Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Keylor Navas.

On-loan Real Madrid man Hakimi has now scored four goals in four appearances in the European tournament this season.

Victory against Inter saw the Black and Yellows climb to second spot in Group F with seven points from four games.

The Morocco international will hope to continue his form when BVB take on Barcelona in their next fixture in the competition on November 27.
