Schwolow infected with COVID-19

Alexander Schwolow is self-isolating after testing positive for coronavirus.
Hertha BSC goalkeeper Alexander Schwolow is set to miss Saturday's Bundesliga clash against SC Freiburg.

The German capital club have announced today that the 29-year-old has tested positive for COVID-19.

With Schwolow expected to be out, 20-year-old Marcel Lotka could make his first senior appearance for Hertha, who could be boosted by the return of club captain Dedryck Boyata at the back.

"The way Dedryck Boyata has trained over the last few days is important for me. He's a very experienced player and I have a good feeling that he'll be ready to play. No matter who plays, we need to do all we can to win," said Hertha coach Tayfun Korkut today.
