Borussia Dortmund coach Lucien Favre wants to rotate his squad for Tuesday's Champions League tie against Club Brugge at Signal Iduna Park.

"We chose to prioritize freshness in Berlin," Favre said at the pre-match press conference when asked about his decision to leave Jadon Sancho on the bench for Saturday's 5-2 victory over Hertha BSC.

"We will continue to rotate. No player can play 10 games in 30 days. We have a lot of attacking options."

16-year-old Youssoufa Moukoko could be in line to make his Champions League debut after becoming the youngest player to ever feature in the Bundesliga when he came on against Hertha.

Favre, however, refused to give any guarantees about the teenage striker's potential involvement.

"We have to wait for the final training session," the BVB coach said.
