Borussia Dortmund 2-0 PSV Eindhoven (Aug 3-1): Jaden Sancho and Marco Reus into quarter-finals

Jadon Sancho has four goals and three assists for Borussia Dortmund in his last seven Champions League home games.

Goals from Jadon Sancho and Marco Reus sent Borussia Dortmund into the Champions League quarter-finals for the first time in three years against PSV Eindhoven.

Sancho's low driving shot from the edge of the area gave Dortmund the lead in the third minute.

Edin Derzic's side had a second goal disallowed when Niklas Fulkrug was ruled offside in the build-up.

Substitute Reus pounced in time to stop a PSV mistake and finished one-on-one against away goalkeeper Walter Benitez to settle the tie.

PSV had several chances to equalise, Hirving Lozano was particularly wasteful, and Peter Boss's side – who are 10 points clear at the top of the Eredivisie – were punished for their waste.

Lozano, brought on as a second-half substitute, cut wide from close range, shot straight at home goalkeeper Gregor Kobel and missed the target from the edge of the area.

PSV's best chance came a minute before Dortmund scored their second goal.

Luc de Jong got on the end of a one-two, but he slipped behind and PSV's time in the Champions League came to a disappointing end.

The home side could have had it earlier in the game when Chelsea loanee Ian Matson's fierce strike was parried by Benitez, before Sancho set the tone and his substitute Reus sealed Dortmund's place in the last eight with a late finish.

Sancho shines on a crucial night for Dortmund

Jaden Sancho poses with the man of the match trophy after Borussia Dortmund beat PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League.
Jaden Sancho was named man of the match as he guided Dortmund to the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

Sancho, who rejoined Dortmund on loan in January, scored his first league goal since his return Werder Bremen won 2-1 Last weekend.

It was his 39th in the league and he is level with Tony Woodcock as the top English goalscorer in Bundesliga history.

The England international followed it up with his first Champions League goal since November 2021 and was named man of the match for his efforts.

He went off injured in the 72nd minute, apparently with a hamstring problem, and was replaced by Reus.

Dortmund will hope it's nothing too serious, with the youngster starting to return to the form he showed during his first spell in Germany.

Speaking to TNT Sports after the match, Sancho said: „Coming into the game, we know it will be tough, but we always have the advantage because we are in front of our own fans.

„From the first whistle to the last, we stuck to our game plan and I'm glad we won.

„I'm very grateful that I got the goal for the team. I've always had a special place for Borussia Dortmund, it's where I made my name, so I have to be grateful to them. The team-mates for believing in me.”
