Borussia Dortmund`s Neven Subotic suffers suspected torn cruciate
Berlin: Borussia Dortmund centre-back Neven Subotic faces a potential injury lay-off after suffering a suspected torn cruciate knee ligament in Saturday`s 2-1 Bundesliga defeat at Wolfsburg.

The Serbia international came off after 45 minutes at Wolves and coach Jurgen Klopp said the 24-year-old had "probably" torn his cruciate ligament.

"It`s terrible news," Klopp told German Sky Sports. "Our doctor still has to organise a scan and we`ll find everything out then."

Second-placed Dortmund host European champions Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga in a fortnight in a repeat of last season`s Champions League final with the Bavarians four points clear at the top.


Four days later, Dortmund host Napoli in a crucial match in the Champions League where they are third in Group F having lost 1-0 at home to Arsenal last Wednesday.

Dortmund have only just welcomed Subotic`s centre-back partner, Germany`s Mats Hummels, from a back injury, but Borussia can rely on Greece defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos as cover for Subotic.
