Borussia Dortmund suffer injury blow with key player
Posted on May 20, 2020
Borussia Dortmund have received a blow with club-captain Marco Reus likely to miss the rest of the season as a result of the adductor injury picked up earlier this year, German media reports.
The Germany international has been in good form for the Bundesliga outfit this term and he has bagged 12 goals and seven assists from 26 appearances in all competitions, according to iSports livescore API.
Reus’ career has been hampered by injuries which have seen him miss important games for club and country but over the past couple of years, he has managed to keep himself fit with only minor niggles.
However, it appears that he may not feature for the club for the rest of the current campaign due to the adductor injury suffered during the 3-2 defeat to Werder Bremen in the DFB-Pokal round of 16 tie in February, as per football data provider iSports API.
Dortmund are scheduled to face Bayern Munich in the Der Klassiker next week and the game should be relishing to watch with both teams in a good run of form this year.
Bayern as usual are leading the proceedings at the current phase of the season but Dortmund are right behind them with only four points being the difference.
Dortmund returned to Bundesliga action after the coronavirus shutdown with a comfortable 4-0 home win over Schalke in the Revierby. Bayern, meanwhile, had to battle it out for a 2-0 triumph at Union Berlin.
With the January arrival of Erling Braut Haaland, Dortmund have a quality striker, who can carry the goalscoring burden in the absence of Reus but they may still miss the creative presence of their captain from the number 10 role.
Irrespective of this, Lucien Favre’s side can’t afford to drop points in the title pursuit. They have an away game at Wolfsburg this weekend before they host Bayern at Signal Iduna Park on Tuesday night.
