Sebastian Kehl: Set for a spell on the sidelines

The 33-year-old midfielder, who was an unused substitute in Saturday's 6-2 victory over Hamburg, suffered a ligament tear in his foot during a training-ground collision and will miss Dortmund's Champions League group game against Napoli on Wednesday.

A statement published on BVB's official website read: "A scan performed by team doctor Markus Braun at Dortmund's Knappschaft hospital on Monday revealed an osseous avulsion injury.

"Kehl is expected to be out of action for about six weeks."

The 2012 Champions League finalists will also run the rule over defender Neven Subotic and forward Henrikh Mkhitaryan before travelling to Naples.
