Gio Reyna scores in third straight preseason match


Giovanni Reyna’s strong run during Borussia Dortmund preseason continued on Saturday with another goalscoring performance.

Reyna scored the opening goal for Lucien Favre’s side on Saturday in a 5-1 friendly win over Duisburg. It was the third straight appearance for Reyna with a goal to his name, playing 90 minutes against the 3. Liga side.

The 17-year-old needed only 12 minutes to break the deadlock after great service from Thorgan Hazard. Reyna rifled home with a left-footed finish down the middle of the goal.

Reyna also scored in friendly wins over Austrian sides Rheindorf Altach and Austria Wien. His preseason camp will continue in Austria before split-squad friendlies take place on Aug. 28th against Paderborn and Bochum respectively.
