FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) Henrikh Mkhitaryan scored one goal and set up two despite being hit by an object thrown from the stands before the match to help Borussia Dortmund win 3-1 at Werder Bremen in the Bundesliga on Saturday.
The Armenia midfielder was not hurt in the incident after warming up ahead of the match. The perpetrator was apprehended and taken out of the stadium. The object appeared to be crumpled cardboard.
Marco Reus scored twice as Dortmund used the opportunity to reduce Bayern Munich's lead to five points following the defending champion's 0-0 draw at Eintracht Frankfurt on Friday. Bayern dropped its first points after opening the season with 10 consecutive wins.
