Subbed off early in Eintracht Frankfurt’s 1-1 draw with VfL Bochum on Saturday, Hugo Larsson will remain unavailable to his German club for approximately three weeks due to a tendon injury in his thigh. Eintracht released updates on a number of players who incurred injury in the weekend draw yesterday. The news surrounding keeper Kevin Trapp and goal-scorer Omar Marmoush is much better. The net-minder and lead striker should be ready to face Union Saint-Gilloise in the Conference League playoff leg on Thursday.
The SGE did not release a status update on Manchester United loanee Donny van de Beek, who also had to depart the match early after relieving Larsson. The loss of the 19-year-old Swede does constitute bad news for the German Eagles. Larsson – with two goals and one assist in 19 league appearances – has served as one of the most consistent shining lights in Dino Toppmöller’s squad. The teenage talent first cracked Toppmöller’s starting XI in round three of the current league campaign. He’s started all but one league fixture since then.
