Thorgan Hazard has given himself the all clear after being forced to come off during Borussia Dortmund’s 3-0 win over Greuther Fürth on Wednesday. 

Borussia Dortmund received another injury scare during their 3-0 win over Greuther Fürth in the Bundesliga on Wednesday as Thorgan Hazard was forced to come off in the second half. The Belgian international limped off the pitch while grabbing his thigh. But now he has given himself the all clear, saying that it was just a cramp.

The news will come as a big relief for Borussia Dortmund, who will already be without a number of key players for this weekend’s game against Hertha Berlin.

In addition to the already sidelined Manuel Akanji, Gio Reyna and Youssoufa Moukoko, Borussia Dortmund will also have to make do without Jude Bellingham on Saturday. The England international picked up his fifth yellow card of the season in the Bundesliga on Wednesday, and will have to serve a one-match suspension as a result. Marius Wolf is also a doubt for Saturday’s game after he missed the Greuther Fürth game due to a muscle injury.

But Marco Rose did say on Wednesday that Raphael Guerreiro has started training individually, and there is hope that he could be in the squad for the trip to Berlin. The Portuguese international has missed the last two games due to a muscle injury.

Next. Four players who left Borussia Dortmund too soon. dark

Donyell Malen could return to the starting XI on Saturday after coming off the bench and scoring the Black and Yellows’ third goal against Greuther Fürth.
