Jadon Sancho vs Ferland Mendy

After an unsuccessful spell at Manchester United, Jadon Sancho has managed to rediscover his old magic at Borussia Dortmund. His performance in the first leg against PSG clearly demonstrated that he is still an elite player capable of shining bright under the Champions League lights.

If Borussia Dortmund are to pull off an upset in the final, the skills and creativity of Sancho will be crucial in this tie. The forward will hope for a memorable return to London, but will be up against it as he takes on Real Madrid left-back Ferland Mendy. The Frenchman has managed to find form at the right time and has cement his place in the Real Madrid XI. This should be a very intriguing battle between two quality players.
