Davy Klaassen sustained a bruise on his right foot on Sunday evening when Makoto Hasebe fouled him inside the penalty area at the end of the match. The Dutchman had to be substituted and was replaced by Michael Lang.

An examination on Monday morning revealed that his foot was bruised. "Davy is already feeling better but will spend the next few days training individually.We will decide whether or not he will be involved in the friendly against St. Pauli on Friday in the near future. He will be back for the Hertha game anyway," says head coach Florian Kohfeldt. The same can be said for Ömer Toprak, who had to miss the game on the weekend due to a calf injury. "We will be cautious with Ömer as well. He will do some light training and we will wait and see if he's able to play on Friday," continues Kohfeldt.
