Sancho both scored and assisted in the 3-3 draw with Hoffenheim on Saturday, but was left feeling embarrassed after he and team-mate Abdou Diallo held up the plane.

The Bundesliga leaders face Spurs at Wembley in the first leg of the last-16 tie without a number of senior players.

According to Ruhr Nachrichten, BVB quartet Marco Reus, Julian Weigl, Paco Alcacer and Lukasz Piszczek will all be absent.

Speaking of Reus, Dortmund director Sebastian Kehl admitted his thigh injury will be a huge blow for the German giants.

He said: “We would, of course, have liked to have him in London, because his presence is a bit intimidating for the opponent.

“But we’ll compensate for his absence.”

Reus is Dortmund‘s top scorer this season, chipping in with 17 goals and 11 assists in all competitions.

Lucien Favre’s men are reportedly eyeing up Crystal Palace right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka in a £40million sumemr swoop.
