Gotze to miss Ruhr derby for Dortmund
Dortmund, Germany (Sports Network) - Borussia Dortmund midfielder Mario Gotze will miss the team's Ruhr derby match with Schalke on Saturday because of a hamstring injury.
Gotze sustained the injury when he came off the bench in Germany's 4-4 draw with Sweden on Tuesday in a World Cup qualifier, forcing him to miss the match against Schalke, which sits two points clear of the defending Bundesliga champions.
Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp is hopeful that the 20-year-old will be fit for the team's Champions League visit of Real Madrid on Wednesday, while defender Marcel Schmelzer and midfielder Ilkay Gundogan are both injury doubts for Saturday's match as well.
