Dortmund updates:
Sabitzer and Wolf appear out for Leipzig, Brunner to log first minutes?

By Peter Weis   @PeterVicey

North-Rhine Westphalia's "Ruhrnachrichten" newspaper reports that Marcel Sabitzer was not among the Dortmund players reporting to the team's hotel on Saturday morning. Neither was Sabitzer's teammate Marius Wolf

In other Dortmund-related personnel news, BVB trainer Edin Terzic confirmed that Germany U17 star Paris Brunner would be in his match-day squad at yesterday's presser.

Though the ordinarily reliable Ruhrnachrichten newspaper has gotten it wrong with respect to this specific player already once this season, the Westphalian daily responsible for providing the latest on the stat of BVB personnel affairs claims that Austrian midfielder Marcel Sabitzer was not among the Dortmund players reporting to the team's local hotel on Saturday morning. Both Sabitzer and fullback/winger Marius Wolf were listed as questionable for this evening's encounter against RB Leipzig.

The "RN" paper claims that neither Wolf nor Sabitzer will be available for tonight's game. Dortmund already had to contend with a significant double-whammy of injury related news yesterday when it was confirmed that fullback Julian Ryerson and striker Youssoufa Moukoko were ruled out for the duration of the calendar year. BVB trainer Edin Terzic confirmed that Moukoko's replacement would be none other than recently crowned U17 World Champion Paris Brunner when speaking at a Friday presser.

Brunner scored five goals in the recent tournament triumph of Christian Wück's DFB-youth-squad. The 17-year-old has netted an incredible 20 tallies for the U17s over the past two years. With Moukoko and Sebastien Haller unable to feature, the teenage talent will count as the only option at striker Teric has behind Niclas Füllkrug. Terzic clearly articulated that Brunner would feature on his bench while speaking to the members of the assembled press on Friday. Brunner has drawn comparisons to Moukoko in the German press.
