On Saturday June 1 Borussia Dortmund will be confronted Real Madrid in the Champions League final at Wembley Stadium in London, but if the Black and Yellows are able to do the improbable and win the trophy, an important question must be answered: would Gio Reyna get a winner's medal?

Before you go on loan Nottingham forest, Reyna made two appearances during the Champions League group stage for Borussia Dortmund, totaling 20 minutes. According to UEFA, the winning team will receive 40 gold medals and the runners-up 40 silver medals. There are no restrictions on who receives these medals, but additional medals cannot be produced.

Historically, every player who appears receives a medal and this would indicate that Reyna receives one as well. He actually hasn't played the fewest minutes of Dortmund players in the Champions League as it would go Youssoufa Moukoko whose four appearances so far in the tournament have only led to 17 minutes.

If Reyna receives a medal, he would join his United States national teammate Christian Pulisic as the only Americans to win the Champions League in recent years after Pulisic lifted the trophy Chelsea in 2021. Jovan Kirovski, also with Dortmund, became the first American to win the title during the 1996-97 season, but he did not play in the final.

Although a bit different as Pulisic was key to Chelsea's run, Reyna getting a medal would be a highlight of his season, which has seen the highlight being avoiding relegation with Nottingham Forest. As he is currently on loan, he will return to Dortmund in the summer to determine his future.
