Gio Reyna hits Claudio Reyna's Champions League numbers

Gio Reyna is one of Europe’s up-and-coming talents and has become a key player for Borussia Dortmund this season. On Tuesday, the 18-year-old made his sixth appearance of this years’ UEFA Champions League season in the team's 2-1 win over Zenit in the last match of the group stage. Reyna hasn’t scored in the competition yet, but has one assist so far.

Dortmund finished top of the table in Group F on 13 points. They will be a top seed team in the round of 16. The draw will be held on Monday December 14 and the group winners will be drawn against runners-up. Teams from the same country cannot face each other in this round.

Equals Claudio Reyna’s record

Gio Reyna played two games in last season’s Champions League, so now he has a total of eight appearances, equaling the number of games his father, Claudio Reyna, has in the tournament. Reyna senior played with Rangers between 1999 to 2001.

The United States international is showing a promising career by consolidating his place in Borussia Dortmund’s starting line-ups and debuting with the USMNT. Reyna arrived in Dortmund in 2019, and he has 25 appearances in all competitions, scoring four goals and providing eight assists.
