Dortmund defender double blow
Borussia Dortmund have been hit with a double blow as both Achraf Hakimi and Abdou Diallo have suffered injuries after their win on Saturday.
Following Saturday’s last-minute winner over Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga Dortmund have confirmed the loss of both defenders to injury.
According to the club website, Achraf Hakimi on loan to Dortmund from Real Madrid is set to miss the remainder of the season with a broken metatarsal. He wants to be on the guidelines – work for a shorter period – by fellow defender Abdou Diallo.
The Morocco International wants to undergo an operation in Madrid and miss the remainder of the season after his performance impressed the Black and Yellow fans.
The most curious thing about the injuries is that Hakimi came on for Diallo on 49 minutes in the match against Wolfsburg but was also substituted 24 minutes later.
Dortmund showed their title credentials with the Der Klassiker, on Saturday against Bayern with a 2 point lead heading to the crunch tie.
