Dortmund (dpa) - Borussia Dortmund's storm talent Youssoufa Moukoko could provide another record and become the youngest player in the Champions League history.
As confirmed by the Bundesliga team, the German-Cameroonian was registered for the group game against Club Brugge on Tuesday (9 p.m. / DAZN) on the UEFA B-list.
Lucien Favre left it open whether Moukoko can count on a mission: "We'll see, we're very many up front," said the BVB coach, referring to the large number of offensive players in the squad.
Moukoko was substituted on Saturday at the 5-2 of his team at Hertha BSC at the age of 16 and one day in the 85th minute for the four-time goalscorer Erling Haaland.
He had replaced the former Dortmund Nuri Sahin as the youngest player to play in the Bundesliga.
The previous record holder in the Champions League is Céléstine Babayaro, who made her debut for Anderlecht on November 23, 1994 at the 1-1 draw in Bucharest at the age of 16 years and 87 days.
Compared to the starting eleven on Saturday in Berlin, Favre wants to make changes: “We will keep rotating, that is necessary.
Making ten games in 30 days is difficult. "
This means that Jadon Sancho, who was spared in Berlin, can hope for a return to the team.
Despite the clear success of Borussia three weeks ago in Bruges, Favre warned his professionals against underestimating the opponent: “We won 3-0, but we have to analyze the whole game.
They also had great opportunities.
We have to stay very focused.
It's a very good team. "
