Winger Jadon Sancho was not risked from the start for Borussia Dortmund's showdown with Bayern Munich at Signal Iduna Park.

Jadon Sancho was named among the substitutes for Borussia Dortmund versus Bayern Munich on Tuesday.

The England winger has been struggling for full fitness and has only appeared as a substitute in Dortmund's two matches since the Bundesliga resumed this month.

Head coach Lucien Favre again kept him out of the starting line-up for the Klassiker at Signal Iduna Park, with Thorgan Hazard and Julian Brandt supporting Erling Haaland in attack.

Mats Hummels was fit to start after being taken off at half-time of the 2-0 win over Wolfsburg, in which Sancho came off the bench to set up Achraf Hakimi for Dortmund's second goal.

Bayern, who are without the injured Thiago, named Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka at the heart of midfield, with Kingsley Coman, Thomas Muller and Serge Gnabry behind striker Robert Lewandowski.

Jerome Boateng, another fitness doubt, was cleared to start at the heart of defence alongside David Alaba.
