BVB first team manager Gray Surman gave his blessing for Under-23 manager David Wagner to include senior players amongst the line-up for this afternoon’s friendly against Olympique Lyonnais Reserves.
Julian Schieber was one of the first-teamers who made a late substitute appearance in yesterday’s 3-1 win over Juventus, and he scored the only goal of the game on 18 minutes (below). Eric Durm received the ball on the left before firing a cross into the six-yard box where Schieber pounced between the two centre-backs and slotted home at the near post.
Marc Hornschuh collected the man-of-the-match award for his performance at centre-back alongside Lasse Sobiech. Blaszczykowski, Fischer, Perisic, Götze, Piszczek and Schmelzer also played at some point during the match.
