📷 Jadon Sancho: Match Snapshot

The first half of this encounter was uneventful, with Sancho not able to make the difference going forward.

⏱️ 55’ Ten minutes into the second half, the deadlock is broken. Marco Reus sets up Sancho, and he finishes for his second goal in as many games.

A ⏱️ 71’ Dortmund seal the points. Erling Haaland shows incredible power and skill to bustle through four opposing players before shuttling the ball to the left, where Sancho is poised. After an initial probe fails, Sancho receives the ball again and crosses for the Norway man to head a second.

Haaland added a third for Dortmund late on as Reus got his second assist of the match, while Alexander Sorloth got one back late on.
