Borussia Dortmund starlet Erling Haaland is out until January. Borussia Dortmund manager Lucien Favre confirmed the injury before Dortmund’s game against Lazio in UEFA Champions League yesterday.
Erling Haaland has picked up a hamstring injury. He had torn his hamstring in the training session. Lucien Favre said to Sky Sports: “Erling Haaland will not be able to play again until January. Maybe he played too much. But he can’t play now.”
“He was injured in training. We initially thought it was not that bad. We cannot change it.”, he added.
Erling Haaland is a regular starter for the Bundesliga giant. He has already scored 17 goals this season in just 14 appearances. He also provided 3 assists this season. It is a huge blow for Borussia Dortmund before the busy December schedule. They still have 7 matches left including a UCL tie and DFB Pokal action.
Dortmund drew against Lazio yesterday. Raphael Guerreiro scored in the 44th minute. Ciro Immobile equals the score with a 67th-minute penalty. Dortmund is now leading the group with 10 points from the first 5 games.
In the Bundesliga, they are now standing 4th in the table. They are now 4 points away from the top.
With the absence of Erling Braut Halland, Borussia Dortmund now can rely on 16 years old Youssoufa Moukoko. “I think he’s the biggest talent in the world right now. 16 years and one day, that’s quite amazing. He has a big career ahead of him.”, Halland himself told about the young striker a few days back.
