25-Year-Old Defender Borussia Dortmund Bundesliga
Hummels kept a clean sheet and was a dominant force in defense as Dortmund routed Galatasaray 4-0 Wednesday in the Champions League.
While Dortmund can't stop leaking goals in the Bundesliga, they are yet to concede in the Champions League. In the last two games Hummels has been a big reason for that, against Galatsaray he played 69 minutes and never looked troubled, effectively stunting the opposition's defense and organizing the back-line well. If he and his defense can show this kind of composure against Hannover Saturday, they are sure to be successful.
