Borussia Dortmund made a crucial stride in their bid to reach the UEFA Champions League by securing a first-leg win over Paris Saint-Germain last night.

The German giants won the home leg at the Signal Iduna Park 1-0, though the club could have easily scored a few more.

One of Dortmund’s main protagonists in their hard-fought win over PSG was none other than Jadon Sancho, the player who was completely ostracised by Manchester United not long ago.

Sancho’s superb display vs PSG

Sancho produced a memorable display on the right flank vs PSG. He was a constant threat for the opposition backline, with Nuno Mendes, in particular, struggling to keep up with him.

The Englishman ended the game with 12 successful dribbles, which is quite impressive, especially in a Champions League semifinal.

In addition to his dribbles, Sancho created a few crucial goalscoring opportunities, which were ultimately spurned by the Dortmund attackers.

Vinicius Junior praises Sancho

Shortly after Dortmund’s win over PSG, Real Madrid superstar Vinicius Junior heaped praise on Jadon Sancho for his display on the night. Vinicius commented on Sancho’s Instagram post, writing, “What a player.”

This is not the first time Vinicius has complimented other players across Europe even if they are involved in the same competition as Real Madrid.

It underscores Vinicius’ confidence and mentality to always admire the sports. Perhaps that is why the forward has been hugely successful at Real Madrid and could play a key role when Los Blancos take on Bayern Munich in the second leg next week.

As Real Madrid get closer and closer to their final game of the season against Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League, they are now sweating over the availability of one of their players.

It has already been confirmed that both David Alaba and Aurelien Tchouameni will miss the finals in London due to injuries.

Other than that, Carlo Ancelotti is likely to have the entirety of his squad available at his disposal, although there could be some concerns surrounding Andriy Lunin.

Lunin not in training for the third day in running

Indeed, Andriy Lunin has not participated in team training today, making it three days in a row heading into the Champions League final, reports Mundo Deportivo.

The Real Madrid goalkeeper is down with a fever that has kept him out of training for three days in a row now.

However, the report does add that despite not being in training for three days now, the Ukrainian international will fly to London and be on the squad list for the finals.

But with reports already suggesting that Thibaut Courtois will be starting in goal against Dortmund, Lunin’s continued absence from training only further strengthens the Belgian’s chances.

Kepa Arrizabalaga, who was absent from training on Tuesday due to personal reasons, is back working with the rest of the squad today. The Spaniard will have no involvement in Saturday’s final though.

Carlo Ancelotti is likely to go with the exact same starting lineup that he named for the Merengues’ final La Liga match against Real Betis.
