Giovanni Reyna could make his UEFA Champions League debut this week against one of Europe’s top teams in Paris Saint-Germain.
The 17-year-old American continued to earn first-team minutes for Borussia Dortmund this past weekend, appearing off the bench in a 4-0 beatdown of Eintracht Frankfurt. With Marco Reus still sidelined due to injury, Reyna has remained with Lucien Favre’s squad and very well could appear at Signal Iduna Park this week. Reyna has one senior goal to his credit so far with the Black and Yellow and would love to line up against the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Neymar and others.
