If Borussia Dortmund As they prepare for their first Champions League final since 2013, manager Edin Terzic has the advantage of no major selection issues in the squad. While there are small questions to answer, as will Marco Reus If he gets the proper farewell from Dortmund as he prepares to leave the club this summer, it is something that may have to happen from the bench considering his Champions League performances in Dortmund so far.

During the knockout stages, Reus' last start was the first leg against PSV, where he logged 62 minutes and has since come off the bench with Julian Brandt pulling the strings in midfield. Since that match, Reus has come off the bench in every knockout match for Dortmund, but he has only played 63 minutes in total since acting more as a super, or at least adequate, substitute.

Another player who has played a similar role for Black and Yellow is Donyell Malen. The winger has played fewer minutes since then Jadon Sancho's returns to Dortmund and may also have to settle for a place on the bench, as Terzic has no reason to mess with what was going against him Paris St. Germain. While Dortmund had to absorb the pressure and rely on it Gregor Kobel And Mats Hummels to save them, it's something that has worked so far.

In their biggest game in years, there is no reason to tinker with the XI as Reus won't even be the only legend to play the final game for their club. Toni Kross looks set to retire with another Champions League title Real Madrid there will be a clash of stories on the Wembley pitch. Expect Dortmund to continue what got them here.
