Jadon Sancho is expected to sit out of Borussia Dortmund's Champions League quarter-final return leg against Manchester City on Wednesday.


Sancho missed the first leg due to a muscle injury that has kept him out for more than a month, and Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc has admitted the 21-year-old is highly unlikely to be fit in time for the second game.

Asked if he expects the England international to make his return in the second leg, Zorc told WAZ:

"I don't really assume that."

Dortmund lost the first leg 2-1 away from home.
