Erling Haaland is back in training ahead of Borussia Dortmund's Bundesliga encounter with Hertha BSC on Saturday.


The Norwegian striker might be able to make his return on Saturday after he missed Dortmund's 6-1 win over Paderborn with a knee problem.

"Erling Haaland started training with the team again today. We will see," said Borussia Dortmund coach Lucien Favre at the pre-match press conference, at which he also provided an update on club captain Marco Reus, who is still recovering from a muscle injury:

"Marco Reus hasn't returned to team training yet. He has started worked with the ball, but only individually."

Favre was tight-lipped on how he plans to replace Mats Hummels, who will be serving a one-match ban after he picked up his fifth yellow card of the season against Paderborn.

"The loss of Mats Hummels is a pity. We'll see how we play. That's all I can say," he said.
