Guerreiro doubtful for Benfica clash

guerreiro doubtful for benfica clash

Borussia Dortmund defender Raphael Guerreiro might miss the Benfica clash on Wednesday, the team’s manager Thomas Tuchel informs.

“Guerreiro is doubtful for tomorrow. He has a stiff thigh muscle from the 6-2 win over Bayer Leverkusen (on Saturday),” said Tuchel during his pre-match press conference.

Borussia Dortmund lost the Champions League round of 16 first-leg against Benfica (1-0), and will host the second-leg at Signal Iduna Park. The clash will take place on Wednesday, March 8.

Thomas Tuchel will have a hard time creating the starting lineup, as Dortmund have a long injured list in the face of Gotze, Bender, Sahin, Rode, Reus. Alexander Isak is another doubtful player for Benfica clash.
