Jude Bellingham is a doubt for Borussia Dortmund’s clash against FC Augsburg this weekend after missing training on Wednesday and Thursday.

Borussia Dortmund continue their charge for the Bundesliga title this weekend with an away game against FC Augsburg. But the Black and Yellows may well have to make do without Jude Bellingham on Sunday, with the midfielder currently dealing with a knee issue.

The England international picked up a knock to his knee during Borussia Dortmund’s win over Gladbach last weekend. Edin Terzic downplayed any injury fears after the game, and gave him the all-clear.

Bellingham missed the public training session on Tuesday, with the club giving load management as the reason for his absence. But according to Ruhr Nachrichten, he also missed the training sessions on Wednesday and Thursday.

So now Borussia Dortmund will be sweating on the fitness of one of their most important players ahead of their crunch clash against FC Augsburg this weekend. Edin Terzic will likely give an update on Bellingham’s status during his pre-match press conference later this week.

Jude Bellingham has been ever-present for Borussia Dortmund so far this season, and has made a total of 42 appearances for the club across all competitions. The 19 year old is also BVB’s leading goalscorer this season, with 14 goals to his name to go along with his seven assists.
