Borussia Dortmund 2-1 Slavia Prague: Jadon Sancho helps German side into last 16

Jadon Sancho
Jadon Sancho also scored in Borussia Dortmund's last Champions League game - a 3-1 loss at Barcelona

England forward Jadon Sancho scored one goal and made another to help Borussia Dortmund beat Slavia Prague and move into the Champions League last 16.

Sancho finished from close range after Marco Reus' pass on 10 minutes.

But Slavia equalised just before half-time through Tomas Soucek, after good work from team-mate Milan Skoda.

Sancho, 19, then created a goal for Julian Brandt, who scored from a tight angle and Dortmund held on despite Julian Weigl's red card.

Weigl received his second caution with 13 minutes remaining, but Dortmund's qualification was confirmed with Inter Milan, who had started the day above the German side, losing 2-1 at home to Barcelona.

Sancho matches Sutton feat - the stats

  • Borussia Dortmund have successfully progressed from the Champions League group stages in six of their last seven campaigns in the competition, only failing in 2017-18.
  • Slavia Prague remain winless in 11 Champions League matches (drew four, lost seven) since winning their first game in the competition against Steaua Bucharest in September 2007.
  • Dortmund have lost only two of their last 16 home group stage games in the Champions League, winning nine and drawing five.
  • Jadon Sancho has scored in each of his last five games for Borussia Dortmund in all competitions (six goals), the best scoring run of his club career.
  • Sancho also became the second Englishman to score in consecutive Champions League appearances for a non-English club, after Chris Sutton with Celtic in 2004.
  • Dortmund's Julian Brandt has scored (two) or provided assists (three) for five Champions League goals this season; he had only scored or assisted once in his previous four seasons in the competition with former club Bayer Leverkusen before this (one goal, no assists in 21 appearances).
  • Julian Weigl was the first Borussia Dortmund player to be sent off in a home Champions League game since Lars Ricken against Rosenborg in October 1999.
