Borussia Dortmund teen Jadon Sancho excited facing Spurs at Wembley

The Englishman has been a revelation this season, scoring seven and assisting nine in 21 games.

Elsewhere, runner up Borussia Monchengladbach suffered a setback as Hertha Berlin snatched a 3-0 away victory on the goals from Salomon Kalou, Ondrej Duda and Davie Selke.

Sancho was bereaved again after he lost his grandmother only recently, and dedicated his goal iin the massive Bundesliga clash against Schalke to the two.

Since their 5-1 rout of Hannover in January, Dortmund are now winless in three straight matches, including a 1-1 away draw against Eintracht Frankfurt in league play and a 3-3 (4-2) loss on penalties to Werder Bremen in the round of 16 of the German Cup, reports Efe news.

The 18-year-old English forward had an early goal ruled out by the video referee but opened his account with a fine finish from a narrow angle in the 32nd. In addition, he also scored against Bayer Leverkusen last season. You've got to thank Dortmund, because it's unheard of for a team that gets 80,000 fans at every home game to put so much faith in youngsters.

Jadon Sancho, in the absence of Dortmund captain Marco Reus, took control for the hosts in the first half, firing in to give them the lead and slicing through the hapless Hoffenheim defence at will.

A wonderful moment of skill from Sancho led to Raphael Guerreiro scoring Dortmund's third before Hoffenheim's comeback, which featured goals from substitute Ishak Belfodil and Pavel Kaderabek.

Sancho nearly got a second goal in the 75th but his low shot hit the post and bounced clear - before the hosts went up the other end and scored through Ishak Belfodil.

Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho is relishing the prospect of facing Tottenham at Wembley, saying it will be a "nice feeling" to star in front of his friends and family in his home-town. Sancho played his part in Dortmund's winning goal, tracking back to dispossess Franck Ribery and start the move that ended in Paco Alcacer finding the net.

But Hoffenheim never allowed their heads to drop and Roman Burki made a brilliant fingertip save to deny Kaderabek's header, before Abdou Diallo failed to clear his lines and Belfodil bundled home after 75 minutes.

"When you lead 3-0 at home it shouldn't happen".
