As the hype for Borussia Dortmund keeps increasing, youngster Jadon Sancho is still one of the squad’s brightest stars for this match with two assists.

The Bundesliga has already entered its second half of the season and Borussia Dortmund are back in full swing again, they defeated Hannover with a couple of assists from wonder kid Jadon Sancho.

Despite not being able to score on Saturday, there is no doubt that the England international is arguably the best player of his squad as he just keeps un gifting all his teammates with amazing football.

Despite having won with a 5-1 victory and no goals from him, Sancho was hands down the best player on the pitch as he kept going forward and making his teammates better with every single ball that he touched.

Achraf Hakimi opened the scoreline with an absolute beauty early in the first half after a Guerreiro assist, then he set Marco Reus up for Dortmund’s second goal of the evening after one hour of the game had passed.

Sancho was always dangerous and always kept creating from either wing of the pitch, but he let loose way more during the second half as the fans at Signal Iduna Park kept cheering him on as the game progressed.

The England international was reaching a point of the game in which he was starting to get difficult to cover by the Hannover defenders, it was only a matter of time before he could get through all defenders and find an opening to assists one of his teammates or even score a goal.

This moment came just a couple of minutes after Marco Reus’ goal, as Sancho saw Mario Götze perfectly placed to serve him the ball and let him score Borussia Dortmund’s third of the evening.

Not too long after that, Reus assisted Guerreiro as well and Dortmund was already winning 4-0 as they moved momentarily 9 points past Bayern Munich. But Sancho was still eager for more, the kid is a non-stop football-creating machine who loves to be closer to goal.

Bakalorz was able to pull one back for Hannover just four minutes before the final whistle, but Sancho decided that he wanted another goal for his squad and served his second assist to Axel Witsel near the end of the match that gave the locals a final 5-1 victory.

This result puts a lot of pressure on Bayern Munich, who play against Stuttgart on Sunday and could stay 9 points behind the leaders if they lose.

But the real hype with Jadon Sancho remains for the Champions League, as the Bundesliga leaders move closer and closer to that crucial first Round of 16 leg against Tottenham Hotspur.

All the players from the German squad are currently in great shape and they don’t look like they have any intentions of slowing down, Jadon Sancho is a big part of this underdog story that could present itself as one of the real Dark Horses of the continental competition.

If you ask me, Borussia Dortmund has the quality to compete for all the trophies this season with that dynamic style of play that in great part comes from young Sancho’s boots. Manager Gareth Southgate must be very excited to see that one of his youngest prospects has started 2019 in such great fashion.

This player has the potential to take Borussia Dortmund into a historic season where they can even reach the UEFA Champions League final, as long as they don’t find a major squad like Barcelona, Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, Manchester United, or Manchester City along the way. But this is bound to happen once the quarterfinals kick in.
