Borussia Dortmund without Jadon Sancho for Gladbach clash

Borussia Dortmund will have to do without Jadon Sancho for their crucial Bundesliga clash against Borussia Mönchengladbach. The Englishman is absent with an illness.

That means there’s a rare start for Jamie Bynoe-Gittens, who impressed after coming on against Atletico Madrid in midweek, while Donyell Malen returns to the bench after being sidelined since the international break. Edin Terzic stated that the Dutchman feels comfortable heading into their game against Gladbach, so expect Malen to feature at some point at Borussia-Park.

Ahead of the game, Terzic backed Niclas Füllkrug to find his scoring boots again after failing to find the next in his last nine games across all competitions. However, Sébastien Haller starts for Die Schwarzgelben against Gladbach.

With Tuesday’s game against Atletico Madrid in mind, Julian Ryerson, Mats Hummels and Emre Can are on the bench.
