No Thorgan Hazard in the Champions League this week. The Red Devil tested positive for the corona virus. The same goes for Koen Casteels. Kevin De Bruyne also tested positive after the international break with the Red Devils.

On Saturday, the winger played 90 minutes in the game against Stuttgart (2-1). In it he prepared the winning goal of Marco Reus. Hazard now misses Borussia Dortmund’s European trip to Lisbon, where the German top club will play Sporting on Wednesday. A crucial match because both teams are second in their group after four matchdays with 6 points, six less than leader Ajax.

But after Erling Haaland and Giovanni Reyna, there is now a third attacker on the side at Dortmund. “Thorgan Hazard had no contact with his teammates on Monday or Sunday and immediately went into isolation,” the club said. “All members of the A-team, U23 and technical staff are 100 percent vaccinated. As a result, no further quarantine measures are needed.”


Casteels misses the move to Sevilla with Wolfsburg. “He complained on Sunday about symptoms of the virus and on Monday morning the results showed that Koen is infected. The rest of the player group and technical staff tested negative,” the German club said.

Wolfsburg is joint second in its Champions League group with 5 points with two match days to go. That is as many as Lille, two less than RB Salzburg and two more than Sevilla.
