Without Erling Haaland, BVB lacks the punch on the offensive. The club wants to reinstate the injured striker after the international break. And has a specific plan for the Mainz game.
So that Dortmund can continue to establish themselves in the table above, the team of coach Marco Rose has to win. BVB has the first opportunity to score points after the international break at home against Mainz 05 next Saturday (3:30 p.m. in the t-online live ticker). Then the currently injured Erling Haaland (muscular problems) should be ready for action again. As the “Bild” reports, the striker had a check with team doctor Dr. Markus Braun. After that, with permission, he should again complete parts of the team training.
According to “Bild”, the Norwegian will then receive more and more intensive training over the next few days. The aim of the black and yellow is therefore that Haaland takes part in the final training on Friday. So he could definitely be part of the squad again, at least as a joker.
In addition to Haaland, Borussia are currently missing several injured players (Read more about it here). But: Even with defense chief Mats Hummels, the chances of being deployed after patellar tendon complaints are good.
