Good morning, everyone.
Marius Wolf has COVID
As COVID cases surge across Germany, Borussia Dortmund are only one of many teams affected. Other teams have it much worse, like Bayern Munich who are missing multiple key squad players including Manuel Neuer, Dayot Upamecano, and Leroy Sané.
Marius Wolf is the latest BVB player to test positive. He will now have to enter quarantine for five days and test negative before he can rejoin the squad. Dan-Axel Zagadou is still in quarantine in Dubai as well.
With Zagadou in quarantine and Akanji injured, Marco Rose will once again have to field a makeshift back line against Eintracht Frankfurt. He will have to decide whether he wants to put Emre Can, Axel Witsel, or Marin Pongracic on the back line. Thus proves the notion that a “gluttony of choice” isn’t always good.
Gio Reyna to make his return
It isn’t all bad news with the squad. Gio Reyna, who suffered a hamstring injury early in the spring and missed more than three months, has finally returned and should make the squad. According to Ruhr Nachrichten, Reyna will likely start against Eintracht Frankfurt on the bench.
This news only merits one thing:
