Gio Reyna could replace injured Marco Reus

Borussia Dortmund head coach Lucien Favre has not ruled out 17-year-old Gio Reyna making his first start for the Bundesliga club on Saturday when they face Bayer Leverkusen.

“It is possible,” said Favre. “You see what he can do every day in training. He is very, very clever. He can play almost all positions and systems.”

Reyna scored his first goal for Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday in their 3-2 defeat to Werder Bremen in the DFB Pokal, whilst the youngster could make his starting debut, replacing the injured Marco Reus.
