Speaking to reporters ahead of Borussia Dortmund’s Bundesliga fixture against RB Leipzig on Saturday evening, head coach Marco Rose provides an update on Erling Haaland and playing in a sold out Westfalenstadion.
“Erling is very questionable for Saturday,” said Rose. “We have all seen the pictures but we’ll see tomorrow when we know more. His foot took a hard hit and the ankle is very swollen.”
Jude Bellingham will also play in a sold-out Westfalenstadion since his move from Birmingham City. Rose added: “This can give us a real boost. It’ll be football as we love it once again. Jude has not yet played in front of a full stadium in Dortmund. It will give us all a lot. But we also need to use it in our favour.”
Six points behind leaders Bayern Munich, this is a must win game to keep their title hopes alive whilst it’s an equally important game for RB Leipzig, who are fighting for a Champions League spot.
