Christian Pulisic could miss Borussia Dortmund’s DFB Pokal second-round match against Union Berlin on Wednesday. However, the issue is not injury related as Pulisic is battling an illness and is doubtful for the game as a result.
“Christian Pulisic, Ousmane Dembele and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang all did not train today,” BVB coach Thomas Tuchel said at a press conference on Tuesday. “That’s bitter news for us. It’s totally questionable whether they can be called up to the squad tomorrow. Two of them are ill, and Auba received several knocks against Ingolstadt.
“We’ll need to wait and see tomorrow.”
Pulisic has been in top form as of late, racking up two goals and four assists in nine appearances for Dortmund in all competitions this season.
