This is Sancho’s seventh week out with a thigh injury and the season-decider in the Champions League comes too soon for the electric winger.
It was reported earlier last week that Sancho would most probably miss the second leg.
The 21-year-old has been one of Dortmund’s revelations in the past couple of seasons and now looks unlikely to appear against his former employers after failing to get into match fitness – although he has returned back to training with the first team.
Marco Reus & Mats Hummels were also said to be doubtful to start at Signal Iduna tomorrow, but nonetheless the German duo trained with the first team ahead of the home clash.
It remains to be seen whether Edin Terzic will start with them.
A lot will rely on main marksman Erling Haaland to get on the scoresheet and overturn the deficit.
