Schmelzer suffered an adductor tear in Friday's 1-1 draw against Hertha Berlin and will be sidelined for the next two weeks. He put one of two shots on target and made three tackles and one interception in the match.

Schmelzer was one of Dortmund's most consistent starters in a season that has been marred with injuries for his side. He now faces a short spell on the sidelines while he recovers from his groin injury. Joo-Ho Park came on for Schmelzer in the 70th minute and could potentially earn the start in Tuesday's Champion's League tie against Sporting CP if some of Dortmund's more experienced defenders have not yet returned to match fitness.

Schmelzer conceded twice Saturday as Dortmund defeated Hannover 4-2.

Schmelzer looked a little shaky against Hannover and was partly to blame for the oppositon easily carving out the chance for the first goal. The left-back did register one shot however and produce three crosses, which should be enough to keep his place in the side next time out.
