The pictures, which Borussia Dortmund reached from the international game between Norway and Armenia, did not give any good guilds – and so it came too. With a swollen and blue ankle, striker Erling Haaland returned from the home after he could contribute two hits to 9: 0 success of his team before replacing in the break. “His use is very questionable, I’m open and honest,” said BVB coach Marco Rose on Thursday with a view of the top game against RB Leipzig on Saturday night. “Erling is always very optimistic. But the foot is thick, swollen, blue. We are working on it, but there is a big question mark.” Would Haaland fail, the game against Leipzig would already be the 17th of this season, which would miss the 21-year-old due to injury.
After all, from Haaland, so far, all national players returned to Dortmund, too, Thorgan Hazard, which had to be treated, did not threaten to be threatened for the current state. Whether this also applies to Giovanni Reyna, who was in use at night on Thursday half an hour for the US team, is to be seen. The midfielder is still on the way back to Dortmund.
In addition to captain Marco Reus and central defender Dan-Axel Zagadou also storm talent Yossoufa Moukoko could also return to the squad. “Mouki has no complete training behind himself, but we’ll see how many players are there until Saturday and whether we can take him in the squad,” Rose said.
However, the most important returnees from Roses’s point of view can not be found on the lawn, but on the tribune. For the first time for over 750 days, the signal Iduna Park will be completely sold out again. 81,365 tickets were deducted in advance, including the last missing ultras will be back on the southstand on Saturday – the rose will see for the first time as a BVB coach in its maximum occupation.
Full stadium – “That can give us a lot”
“Then,” said the 45-year-old, “Let’s look forward to everyone in the cabin. Our captain, the Reuser, runs for days with an enchanted smile through the cabin because he is on his full stadium pleased. That can give us a lot. ” In addition to Rose will also be a new experience for some players – about midfield Youngster Jude Bellingham – a full signal iduna park. “This will be a special day for all,” Rose suspected two days before the game – and hopes for an extra thrust against Leipzig and throughout the season end spurt: “The full stadium is an absolute pound for us. We want to use that.”
