The grip of Jordan Beyer to the back of the right thigh did not hide anything good. The subsequent check by the medical department then ensured confirmation and the expected signal towards Borussen-Bank: replacement.
In the 86th minute, the away game at Eintracht Frankfurt was running for Beyer – and may have meant the end of the season for him. So far, Borussia has not given any information about the severity of the muscle injury, but it is feared that it was so difficult for the central defender that he was not available against Hoffenheim.
Coach Adi Hütter threatens a bottleneck in central defense before the season finale. Nico Elvedi still has to serve his Red Pan from the Leipzig game against the Kraichgauer, and Tony Jantschke also failed in Frankfurt. The veteran made knee problems difficult. Questionable whether Hütter can plan with Jantschke again for Saturday.
Ginter was last outside
Matthias Ginter could rinse the tense personnel position in the triple chain again in the starting eleven. Since the fixed relegation and foot injury to the derby bankruptcy against 1. FC Köln (1: 3), the national player, who switched to SC Freiburg in summer, has no longer been used. Against Leipzig and Frankfurt, Ginter was sitting on the bench for 90 minutes. On Sunday, Hütter even switched to full -back Joe Scally for Beyer for the final minutes. Will Ginter against Hoffenheim still get his “farewell game” with the foals after five years?
