Jadon Sancho is reportedly set to start on the bench for Borussia Dortmund when they take on local rivals Schalke 04 at Signal Iduna Park in the Bundesliga today.

The English international has been struggling with muscular problems in the past few weeks and will be left out of the line-up as a precautionary measure, according to Ruhr Nachrichten.


BVB coach Lucien Favre is likely to let Giovanni Reyna or Mario Götze play from the start instead.

Dortmund will have to manage without Marco Reus, Dan-Axel Zagadou, Emre Can and Axel Witsel, who have all been ruled out with injuries, while Nico Schulz is unlikely to be in contention as well.

The game will kick off at 15:30 CET.
