Edin Terzic is confident that Mats Hummels will be able to face Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday despite being forced off against RB Leipzig due to a cut on his shin.

Borussia Dortmund suffered an injury scare during their 4-1 defeat to RB Leipzig on Saturday as Mats Hummels was forced to come off in the second-half with an apparent shin issue. This led to fears that the veteran centre-back could be forced to miss BVB's crunch Champions League semifinal first leg against Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday. But Edin Terzic gave a positive update about Hummels' fitness after the game.

During his post-match press conference on Saturday, Terzic said that Hummels had a laceration on his shin. "It has just been treated. He also already looks much better now, so we can assume that he should be fine to play on Wednesday," Terzic said.

Hummels has been one of Borussia Dortmund's top performers this season, and has been especially relied upon by Terzic in the big matches. And having his experience and know-how will be vital for what will be the Black and Yellows' maiden Champions League semifinals appearance since 2013.

In addition to Hummels, Borussia Dortmund will also be sweating on the fitness of Donyell Malen and Ian Maatsen. The Dutch duo have been dealing with muscular problems.

Sebastien Haller and Ramy Bensebaini are unlikely to be in the squad for the first leg of the PSG tie. More updates on the squad's injury situation will likely be given by Terzic during his pre-match press conference on Tuesday.
