Borussia Dortmund has slipped out of the European qualification spots in the Bundesliga, but could rely on Gio Reyna to help spark the club on a move back up Bundesliga table.
Dortmund welcomes Hoffenheim to Signal Iduna Park on Saturday, aiming to rebound from a disappointing loss to Freiburg. Reyna will go head-to-head with international teammate Chris Richards, who has jumped right into the Hoffenheim squad after arriving on loan from Bayern Munich.
Reyna has not registered a goal or assist in league play since December 12th, but has continued to earn minutes for Dortmund of late. The 18-year-old will aim to stay in the starting lineup this weekend and snap his goalless streak in the process.
As for Richards, he made his club debut last weekend, playing 90 minutes in Hoffenheim’s 3-1 loss to Eintracht Frankfurt. The 20-year-old showed promise for Sebastian Hoeness’ squad and will now aim to limit the Dortmund attack led by Erling Haaland, Reyna, and others.
Elsewhere, Weston McKennie and Juventus face a tough test at Napoli while Christian Pulisic and Chelsea aim to continue their good run going against Newcastle United. Jordan Morris and Paul Arriola will both hope to start for Swansea City against Sheffield Wednesday. Josh Sargent and Werder Bremen return to action after last weekend’s postponed match. Mark McKenzie looks to start for Genk in league play after helping the club advance in the Belgian Cup.
