Borussia Dortmund’s squad is being depleted on a daily basis at the moment, and that’s positive for Arsenal.
Jurgen Klopp must be cursing his luck at the recent international break, and no less than three of his first team starters suffering various degrees of fitness setbacks while on duty for their countries.
Attacking midfielder Marco Reus was the first to get hurt during Germany’s Euro 2016 qualifier versus Scotland.
Reus was clattered into by Charlie Mulgrew in stoppage time, and as a result the highly-prised attacking midfielder is set to be out for up to four weeks.
Jurgen Klopp then saw summer signing Ciro Immobile leave Italy’s match in Norway on a stretcher on Tuesday night, however the Azzurri forward has since been reported to be doing fine.
On Thursday BVB suffered another blow, however, as Jakub ‘Kuba’ Blaszczykowski, who didn’t train on Wednesday because of muscular problems in his thigh. Kuba has now confirmed on Facebook that he is out for a month.
It’s all good news for Arsenal, who travel to Dortmund on Tuesday night in the Champions League.
