Sahin: Borussia Dortmund deserved to lose against Napoli
Lorenzo Insigne’s superb free-kick goal in the second half followed Gonzalo Higuain’s header in the first to give the Partenopei victory at the Stadio San Paolo, after Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Weidenfeller was sent off just before half time.
“We started well in this stadium, but everything that could go wrong did go wrong,” Sahin told the German side’s official website.
“In the first half it was like we were in the wrong film. Considering the evening, it was a deserved defeat.”
“Napoli played the ball very well. We tried all we could and we pushed [Robert] Lewandowski forward to gain more depth,” added the Turkish international.
“In the Champions League, it gets very difficult when you lose a man.”
