Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland is set to miss the remainder of 2020 because of a hamstring injury.

Dortmund confirmed on Wednesday that the 20-year-old picked up the muscle injury, meaning he he won't feature for Dortmund again until after the winter break.

will be interesting how many minutes they'll give to Moukoko. Dortmund fans have been pretty vocal about giving him chances, but the kid is 16 after all.

Well...giving youth a chance is Dortmund's MO.

yeah. Still, I can't remember a kid ever being this hyped up in Germany. They've had November 2020 circled on the calendar for years, really, because that's when he'd turn 16 and finally be eligible to play. Hope the club actually protects him from that because that kind of pressure can easily get to young players.

Very true.

Has anyone ever met a legitimate in the flesh Neymar fan?

I mean, a principled, tactful, polite one.

no. In all honesty, I don't think I have ever met a football fan in the flesh who didn't at least dislike Neymar.

Two penalties were not enough to defeat the mighty LASK Linz.

It was a goalkeeping clinic by Joe Hart. I feel like if we had someone like Adrian or Loris Karius we win that 3-1, alas Joe Hart is here to ply his trade.

I guess the bottom line is we’re through and if we beat Antwerp, we still win the group. I’m not sure how things will go in the KO as teams like Real and United seem intent on dropping to the EL this year!

He's another level with his peers, isn't it something like 1.6 goals per game he's scoring

yeah his goal scoring record in youth teams is pretty ridiculous. A lot of people think he's actually one or two years older (his background is really shady), but I don't think it matters too much in this case because it's not like he's dominated the opposition physically.

Have to think Gerrard will be getting looks for a bigger club move if Rangers keep all this up. Only 3 goals against in the SPL. Going to the next round in the Europa League. A pretty impressive start to his managerial career.
