Donyell Malen is a big doubt for Borussia Dortmund’s upcoming Bundesliga clash with VfB Stuttgart.

The Dutchman missed BVB’s 2-0 win over Bayern Munich last week with a muscle problem and is still not fully fit.

“We will take the next two days to make a final decision. It’s going to be tight for Saturday,” Borussia Dortmund coach Edin Terzic said at a press conference on Thursday.

He confirmed that Ramy Bensebaini will also miss out, but on the positive side, both Gregor Kobel and Marcel Sabitzer are back in the squad.

“Gregor Kobel has been able to significantly increase his training workload and has been back with the full team since Tuesday. He is therefore available to us again,” said Terzic.
