BERLIN — Henrikh Mkhitaryan scored for Borussia Dortmund to labor to a 1-0 win over bottom side Hannover and provisionally cut Bayern Munich's Bundesliga lead to five points on Saturday.

Dortmund was forced to be patient against Hannover's defensive set-up before Mkhitaryan broke the deadlock in the 57th when he saw his chance and let fly inside the far post.
