Watch: Jadon Sancho helps set up BVB goal with a delightful backheel


Jadon Sancho once again showed why he’s one of the most sought after players in Europe during Borussia Dortmund’s crazy game against Bayer Leverkusen.

The 19-year-old has been in incredible form this season and has been linked with summer moves to Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea.

Leverkusen had taken the lead through Kevin Volland in the 20th minute but Dortmund equalised moments later when Mats Hummels nodded home Sancho’s corner.

The winger now has 12 goals and 13 assists in 19 Bundesliga games this season.

Former Liverpool midfielder Emre Can then marked his first start for Dortmund by scoring a superb curling effort from 25 yards out.

Volland completed his brace to bring Leverkusen level just before half time but Dortmund had the ball in the back of the net eight minutes after the break.

Sancho thought he had made it 3-2 to Dortmund but VAR spotted a foul by Giovanni Reya in the build-up and the goal was disallowed.

Rafael Guerreiro eventually put the visitors back ahead with a low drive after a deft backheel from Sancho had cut Leverkusen’s defence apart.

However, Leverkusen then scored a quickfire double through Leon Bailey and Lars Bender in the final 10 minutes to turn the game around and steal the three points.
