Erling Haaland will be ready for the game against Hertha Berlin


After consultation with the Borussia Dortmund Health Department, it was decided that Erling Haaland will be available for selection against Hertha Berlin.

During the international break, a member of the Norwegian squad, Omar Elabdellaoui, tested positive for COVID-19. Owing to this, there was speculation over the quarantine procedure which his teammates would have to follow.

There were doubts that all Norwegian players would have to self-isolate for 10 days, including Erling Haaland. However, the club’s health department observed that the 10 day quarantine period was not necessary for the striker.

In a statement they said, “After the player Erling Haaland returned to Dortmund, a detailed questioning about possible contact with another Norwegian player who tested positive could take place. Mr Haaland does not belong to category 1 (close contact). The health department did not have to issue a quarantine order.

This means that Haaland will be available to play for BVB against Hertha Berlin on Saturday night at the Olympiastadion Berlin.
