Mahmoud Dahoud is still in the build-up phase two weeks after suffering an internal ligament stretch in his knee. However, if the central midfielder from Borussia Dortmund returns to team training this week, he could be an option for the game against Mainz 05 (Saturday, 3:30 p.m.).
As with Giovanni Reyna (muscle injury), it remains to be seen whether he will manage this. As the Ruhr Nachrichten writes, it will be a race against time for the duo. It is also possible that head coach Marco Rose will give both of them a few more days to have them ready for the Champions League game against AFC Ajax next Tuesday.
The coming days will show in which direction Dahoud and Reyna are headed. Training starts on Tuesday at BVB.
