Borussia Dortmund is hoping for striker Erling Haaland to play in the cup final against RB Leipzig on Thursday. After he kissed the horse, the fluid that had formed was “less and less,” said coach Edin Terzic after the 3-2 win at the dress rehearsal against the Saxons.
“We hope that he’ll come back to team training early or mid-next week and be an option for the cup final.”
However, Terzic emphasized that his team had managed to “score eight goals without Erling Haaland” in two games in the last seven days. But you have “nothing against it if it is back on the billboard”.
RB coach Julian Nagelsmann showed respect for the Norwegian storm jewel. It doesn’t “tend to get any easier when he plays,” said Nagelsmann: “We’re preparing for him to play. With him, you have another dynamic component up front.”
