Borussia Dortmund 1-0 PSG: Jadon Sancho stars as Niclas Fullkrug goal gives Dortmund lead in Champions League semi-final tie

Match report as Borussia Dortmund take a 1-0 lead to Paris in their Champions League semi-final after Niclas Fullkrug’s first-half goal is enough to seal a first-leg victory; Kylian Mbappe, Achraf Hakimi both hit woodwork for PSG while Fullkrug missed big chance to double lead

Jadon Sancho was the star of the show as Borussia Dortmund edged PSG 1-0 in a pulsating Champions League semi-final first leg through Niclas Fullkrug’s fine winner.

The England winger, cast out at parent club Man Utd, gave Nuno Mendes a torrid time throughout at the Westfalenstadion and could easily have had a hat-trick of assists had his team-mates had their shooting boots on.

Instead, it was only Fullkrug’s first-half thunderbolt which found the back of the net, the Germany striker firing in at the near post after a fine ball over the top from Nico Schlotterbeck.

Dortmund dominated the opening period and deserved their win, but their lead remained only by the narrowest of margins as Kylian Mbappe and Achraf Hakimi were denied by either post in the same move, before Fabian Ruiz headed a golden chance wide. Sancho teed up Fullkrug for a simpler finish than his goal soon after but the striker spooned a simple chance over the bar, before the Man Utd loanee played a fine one-two with Julian Brandt whose poor touch denied him another significant opportunity.
