Marcel Schmelzer has joined the lengthy injury list at Borussia Dortmund after fracturing the metacarpus of his right hand in the 1-0 home defeat to strugglers Hamburger SV on Saturday. The 26-year old is expected to be sidelined for about four weeks and will certainly miss the game at Galatasaray AŞ on 22 October and is doubtful for the home return two weeks later.

He joins Marco Reus (ankle), Henrikh Mkhitaryan (foot), İlkay Gündoğan (lack of fitness), Oliver Kirch (Muskelbündelriss), Nuri Şahin (knee) and Jakub Błaszczykowski (thigh) on the sidelines. Reus, Mkhitaryan and Gündoğan are expected to return after the international break.
