The playmaker won’t hit the pitch for the first time since Dortmund’s first match back from the coronavirus pause.

Reyna, 17, was announced as a member of the 2020 Golden Boy Award shortlist earlier this week.

He came off the bench in 17 of Dortmund’s last 18 matches including Bundesliga, Champions League, and the German Cup.

We’ll update the story as soon as there is news out of Germany.
