Salif Sané is also unavailable for the Royal Blues. The Senegalese defender complained of knee pain after returning from AFCON qualifying with his national side in November. Consultation with two experts has determined that the 30-year-old does not require an operation.

After Benito Raman picked up a knock in the game in Mönchengladbach, after scoring to make it 1-1, he was substituted in the 63rd minute. The Belgian trained individually on Tuesday (1/12), but should return to squad training on Wednesday.

Rabbi Matondo, Bastian Oczipka and Ralf Fährmann continue to be absent from squad training due to injury. The trio are working individually with the fitness coaches. Mark Uth, Steven Skrzybski und Matija Nastasic are training individually to start the week.
