Gio Reyna was once again named on the bench for Borussia Dortmund's vital Bundesliga win over RB Leipzig on Friday.
  • Reyna benched yet again
  • Fourth consecutive game on the bench
  • Dortmund win 2-1 to remain in Bundesliga chase

WHAT HAPPENED? Reyna has started just once since the return of the Bundesliga, although he had made himself something of a supersub after scoring in each of his first three appearances off the bench. However, he has not been called upon at all in each of Dortmund's last four games, including their Champions League round of 16 first leg against Chelsea.

Without Reyna, Dortmund went on to win 2-1 with Marco Reus and Emre Can providing the goals. With the win, Dortmund temporarily go top, with Bayern Munich to reclaim the top spot with a win over Stuttgart on Saturday.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Dortmund boss Edin Terzic said pregame that he needs Reyna to be patient as the club wants to avoid seeing the U.S. men's national team star suffer another injury setback. As for the USMNT, Reyna recently met with interim coach Anthony Hudson, who says he is eager to find a solution that keeps all involved happy after a tumultuous winter period.
