Jadon Sancho on Target Again as Borussia Dortmund Edge Past PSV Eindhoven 2-0 to Reach the UCL Quarters

Jadon Sancho on Target Again as Borussia Dortmund Edge Past PSV Eindhoven 2-0 to Reach the UCL Quarters

The 2023/2024 UEFA Champions League Season is edging closer to decide the eventual winners of this year’s top-tiered European club football competition as six of the last 8 teams have been decided. In yesterday’s matchups, Jadon Sancho’s Borussia Dortmund were up against Luuk de Jong’s PSV Eindhoven at home, while the other game saw Spanish La Liga’s Atlético Madrid host the current best team in the Italian Serie A Inter Milan at Civitas Metropolitan Stadium, Madrid.

In the cup tie between the German and Dutch clubs, Jadon Sancho and Jadon Sancho’s replacement in the second half Marco Reus were on the score sheet for Borussia Dortmund, lifting the Black and Yellows to the UEFA Champions League Quarterfinals with a 3-1 aggregate score over two legs of competitions as a result.

 

Jadon Sancho and Marco Reus Sent Edin Terzić’s Men to the UEFA Champions League Quarterfinals

Since both teams ended their first leg at Philips Stadion all square at 1-1 after 90 minutes plus added time, they had it all to play for in the returning leg of this UCL Round of 16 encounter at Westfalenstadion. It was Borussia Dortmund who broke the deadlock against their Dutch counterparts in the first 45 minutes, when Jadon Sancho put his team ahead as early as the third minute. A blocked cross by the PSV Eindhoven backline saw the ball ricochet to Julian Brandt, who then set up the 23-year-old Manchester United loanee Jadon Sancho for a shot.

The England international Jadon Sancho’s subsequent strike was a low but solid one, finding the bottom left corner and squeezing past the opposing goalkeeper Walter Daniel Benítez for the game opener. Jadon Sancho was also of course on the score sheet when Borussia Dortmund were welcomed by SV Werder Bremen to the latter’s home, netting the Black and Yellows’ second goal of the evening, meaning he has offered Edin Terzić’s side two goals in as many matches in all competitions of late.

Jadon Sancho was replaced by long-time Dortmund star Marco Reus with 15 minutes to go in the normal playing him following a knock that he picked up earlier in the game, and Terzić’s substitution gave him the much-waited second goal to seal the qualification versus Peter Bosz’s team in the closing stages. After going back and forth against one another, fellow replacement and PSV’s last man Isaac Babadi’s slip allowed Reus to travel into the penalty box, and the German attacker showed immense calmness when faced with the shot stopper, slotting home an easy goal to secure a 2-0 second-leg win and 3-1 aggregate score line for Dortmund to reach the UCL Last 8.

Jadon Sancho in His Second Stint with Dortmund: Two Goals and Two Assists in 10 Matches

With his goal against PSV Eindhoven at Signal Iduna Park, Jadon Sancho has notched his second goal in as many matches, having also found the back of the net against SV Werder Bremen in the 38th minute of the German Bundesliga 1 Matchday 25 fixture at wohninvest WESERSTADION last weekend. These couple of goals were also complemented with two assists that Jadon Sancho offered in 10 matches in all competitions during his second stint with the German top-flight club, and the footballer on loan from 13-time English Premier League winners Manchester United is certainly proving a point with his fair performances both domestically and internationally in club football.

Another UCL Last 16 cup tie that had a tied 1-1 score line in the first leg happened between Spanish La Liga giants Barcelona and Italian Serie A powerhouses SSC Napoli. During the returning round of the matchup between two of last season’s Europe’s Top Five Leagues winners, Blaugrana made full use of their home advantage at Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys, putting three past their oppositions from Italy to reach their first UEFA Champions League Quarterfinals since the 2019/2020 Season.

Terzić on the Black and Yellows Progressing Into the UCL Last 8: “We Earned Our Spot with Hard Work.”

41-year-old Dortmund head coach Terzić was full of praises about his team that have now booked their spot in the next round of the competition. He mentioned: “We really earned our quarter-final spot today with hard work. We played perhaps the best 30 minutes of the season at the beginning. After that, we should have scored more goals during that pressing phase. Unfortunately, in the second half, we stopped playing like that but defended with passion. My voice is gone now; It was very taxing for me today. I am very proud to have been a part of this evening.”

Jadon Sancho, who was given the Man of the Match award for his massive performance in over 75 minutes in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 second leg between Borussia Dortmund and PSV Eindhoven, extended his gratitude towards the collective display by the entire team, saying that “I just knew from the dressing room talk that we were on. From the first whistle to the last, we stuck to our plan and I’m happy we got the win”.

Bosz, on the other hand, responded with these after the PSV side led by him were defeated and eliminated by Borussia Dortmund in the top-tiered European club football competition. “We started the game poorly. After 30 minutes, we then got a grip on the game, but unfortunately we didn’t score any goals from the pressure. We dominated the game, but the final pass didn’t work out. Maybe there was a bit of bad luck involved. It hurts a lot that we lost here today. Getting knocked out of the Champions League is always very painful,” said the 60-year-old Dutchman.
