Dortmunds Schmelzer misses Marseille clash
Borussia Dortmund will be without Germany left-back Marcel Schmelzer for Tuesday's Champions League clash at home to Marseille after he tore a muscle in his left thigh in training, the club confirmed Saturday.
The 25-year-old is expected to miss the next three weeks and sat out Borussia's 5-0 drubbing of Freiburg in Dortmund which kept last season's Champions League finalists top of the Bundesliga on Saturday.
Schmelzer faces a race against time to be fit for Dortmund's away trip to Group F leaders Arsenal on October 22.
