Sokratis aggravated a muscular injury and did not make the 18-man squad for Saturday's 3-3 draw with Ingolstadt.

Sokratis missed his second Bundesliga match of the season with injury but doesn't look like he is destined for a long spell on the sidelines. Marc Bartra and Matthias Ginter paired up in central defense but one of them could make way once Sokratis is fully fit. Borussia Dortmund face Union Berlin in the DFB Pokal this Wednesday before taking on Schalke 04 this Saturday.

October 17, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Sokratis (strain) has traveled with the team and could be available for Tuesday's Champions League match against Sporting CP.

Sokratis was injured during the international break and will be desperate to be healthy for the match. His inclusion in the side would be a massive boost for a Dortmund side dealing with plenty of injuries. Marc Bartra and Matthias Ginter are the likely centre-back pairing if Sokratis is unable to go.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Sokratis picked up a muscle strain during international duty and will miss Friday's match with Hertha Berlin.

Sokratis has started all six matches for Dortmund to start the season, and his absence causing a selection problem for Dortmund manager, Thomas Tuchel. Matthias Ginter and Marc Bartra are expected to pair at centre-back.

Papastathopoulos was replaced in the seventh minute of Greece's 2-0 World Cup qualifying victory over Estonia after he suffered an adductor injury in his right leg, reports

Papastathopoulos has played well for Dortmund, starting in all six matches so far this season and leading the squad in tackles and clearances per match. Although he has only kept one clean sheet and has not yet found the scoresheet, his absence would adversely impact Dortmund and fantasy owners alike. If Marc Barta is fit, he will likely slot into Papastathopoulos' place in the starting XI against a tough Hertha Berlin side on 14 October. Otherwise, Felix Passlack or Raphael Guerreiro may earn the start.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Sokratis scored a goal on three shots (all on target) during Dortmund's 6-0 win over Legia on Wednesday.

The 28-year-old didn't have problems on defense so he decided to leave a good impression on offense. It's his first goal of the season, and he should be a constant threat on set-piece situations for Dortmund.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Papastathopoulos will be sidelined for three weeks after he sustained torn muscle fibers in the adductor region during Sunday’s 1-0 victory against Bayer Leverkusen.

Papastathopoulos was subbed out in the 77th minute of Sunday’s contest against Bayer Leverkusen and replaced by Neven Subotic, who will likely fill in for the Greek central defender during his absence. So far this season, Papastathopoulos has started 18 matches in the Bundesliga and scored one goal. He will miss the second leg of the team's Europa League Round of 32 match against FC Porto Thursday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Papastathopoulos had a clean sheet Friday in Dortmund's 2-0 win over Mainz.

Papastathopoulos and Mats Hummels looked strong as a centre-back pairing, giving Dortmund its first clean sheet of the month. The Greek international played the full 90 minutes and made a team-high number of both tackles and clearances to see out a vital victory.

September 27, 2015

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Papastathopoulos conceded a disappointing brace as Dortmund tied 2-2 Sunday with Darmstadt.

The Greek international didn't look especially convincing in defense as the Bundesliga newcomers managed to score twice from just four shots on goal. Papastathopoulos did look good in the air and won a number of crucial headers but ultimately failed to look solid at centre-back.
