26-Year-Old Defender Borussia Dortmund Bundesliga
Papastathopoulos kept a clean sheet as Dortmund comfortably beat Galatasaray 4-0 Wednesday in the Champions League.
Papastathopoulos played in the rather unfamiliar position of left-back following last weekend's injury to Erik Durm. He was successful in the role, looking solid and making the best attempt to go forward when he could. However he did look a bit sluggish as he has for several games now, Papastathopoulos visibly suffering in his team's recent slump. That said, the experiment of Mats Hummels and Neven Subotic in the middle of defense and Papastathopoulos and Lukasz Piszczek as full-backs looked pretty solid overall and Jurgen Klopp may well choose to go with the same back four Saturday when Dortmund entertain Hannover.
