Borussia Dortmund will make a late decision on whether to risk Raphael Guerreiro for Saturday's trip to Augsburg.

Guerreiro recently returned to training after missing Dortmund's first two games of the season due to a muscle problem.

Thorgan Hazard has started both games at left wing-back in Guerreiro's absence, but the Belgian international was replaced by Felix Passlack in the first half of last week's Bundesliga encounter with Gladbach after suffering a muscle injury that will keep him out for weeks.

And should it be decided that Saturday's game comes too soon for Guerreiro, Passlack will be given another chance.

"A decision on Raphaël Guerreiro will be made tomorrow, otherwise Felix Passlack will be ready to go," Dortmund coach Lucien Favre told reporters at the pre-match press conference.

Nico Schulz is back in training, but will definitely not be available for Saturday's game while Marcel Schmelzer and Dan-Axel Zagadou remain out with long-term injuries.
