Bad luck with injuries struck BVB again at the beginning of the new season. Eight players are currently on sick leave. When it could be enough for Kobel, Hazard and Co. to make a comeback.
Before the Champions League opener against FC Copenhagen, the next BVB failure came with regular keeper Gregor Kobel. Thorgan Hazard was also injured during the game. It was failures number seven and eight for BVB.
All that is known about the Swiss keeper is that he tore a muscle fiber in training before the premier class. BVB did not provide any information about a more precise downtime. Newcomer Alexander Meyer replaced Kobel between the posts and did very well in the win over Copenhagen. Meyer will also be in goal in Leipzig and a week later in the Revierderby against Schalke. According to Sky, Kobel will be out for three to four weeks. As there is an international break after the derby, Kobel should be available again afterwards. Anticipated comeback: On matchday 8 at 1. FC Köln (1.10).
The Belgian had to leave the field after around 20 minutes against Copenhagen. The muscles pinched again. Details of the injury and downtime are not known. But the break shouldn't last too long for Hazard. Expected comeback: It's possible that Hazard will already be available against Schalke on Matchday 7 (09/17). He will definitely be missing at the weekend against Leipzig.
The new signing from Salzburg had to sit out after the first three competitive games of the season due to a foot injury. However, Adeyemi is on the mend. So far he has not been able to train fully with the team, but Edin Terzic was optimistic on the PK before the Leipzig game. "We'll have to wait a bit longer. We'll decide at short notice to what extent it's enough. But it's still a matter of days," said the BVB coach. Black and Yellow will probably have to do without Adeyemi again against RBL - against Schalke the comeback beckons. Expected comeback: It is very likely that Adeyemi can play again on matchday 7 in the Revierderby (09/17).
Mateu Morey is THE BVB unlucky man. The Spaniard suffered another serious knee injury and has already undergone lateral meniscus surgery. The return of the right-back will therefore take some time. Expected comeback: Morey will be out at least until the end of the year. Afterwards he will have to be carefully introduced to the team again. It remains to be seen whether it will be enough for the start of the new year. BVB starts 2023 with a home game against FC Augsburg (22.01).
The central midfielder will also no longer be available to BVB in 2022. Dahoud underwent shoulder surgery and will be out until the end of the year. Expected comeback: Dahoud should be fit again for the start of the new year. In the home game against FC Augsburg (22.01) he would therefore be an option again.
Like Dahoud, the rising star on the wing dislocated his shoulder and subsequently had to undergo surgery. The young Englishman will also be absent until the end of the year. Expected comeback: The same applies to Bynoe-Gittens as to Dahoud, the comeback is planned for the start of 2023 (February 22 against FCA).
The Ajax newcomer is fighting to return to the pitch after the shock diagnosis and subsequent testicular surgery including chemotherapy. On Tuesday he was in the stadium in the Champions League and not only gave captain Marco Reus goosebumps. In an interview with FIFA, Haller reported that the healing process was going well: "I'm doing very well, the treatment is going well and I'm lucky enough to be able to train every day." This is great news that gives hope that Haller will be back in 2023 has fully recovered and can return to the pitch. Expected comeback: Haller should not give an exact date. Above all is his full recovery. Sooner or later, BVB will be happy about the centre-forward. Everyone is looking forward to this day - not only in Dortmund!
