Cologne - Borussia Dortmund's UEFA Europa League dreams remain intact thanks in no small part to the man bundesliga.com users voted their Matchday 30 Player of the Week, .
The Gabon international scooped 66 per cent of the poll after outfoxing Eintracht Frankfurt goalkeeper Kevin Trapp with a cheeky 'Panenka' penalty and teeing up Shinji Kagawa for BVB's second of the afternoon in a comfortable 2-0 success at the Signal Iduna Park.
Second on the podium, Hamburger SV striker Pierre-Michel Lasogga gave his side's hopes of beating the top a timely shot in the arm with a well-taken double in Saturday afternoon's 3-2 home win over FC Augsburg.
The 23-year-old took 21 per cent of the vote, beating 1. FSV Mainz 05 defender-turned-goalscorer into third (13 per cent), his quick-fire brace having been enough to see off FC Schalke 04 in Matchday 30's opening fixture.
