It was a risk that paid off in the end. It was a risk that finally paid off, as a few minutes later the Moroccan winger was finally rewarded for his efforts. "We can't just try to avoid making mistakes and at the moment, Hakim Ziyech has found the right balance that allows him to measure his risk-taking," said the German coach, who is "happy" with his player.
