RB Leipzig's Dani Olmo will be out for Spain's upcoming international European Championship qualifier this Tuesday (8:45 p.m.) against Cyprus. This was announced by the Spanish Football Federation on Saturday. National coach Luis de la Fuente has already Ferran Torres (FC Barcelona) and Yeremy Pino (Villereal) post-nominated, after Marco Asensio (Paris Saint-Germain) also had to pass stricken.
Leipzigs Olmo as well as Asensio could not finish the game in Georgia (7:1). Both players were substituted in the 43rd minute of the first half. The 25-year-old Olmo, who scored five goals in the first four competitive games of the German Cup winner and against the Georgians on Friday night in the meantime the 3-0 (38th minute), has probably received a blow to the knee. An exact diagnosis is still pending.
Leipzig face FC Augsburg in the Bundesliga next Saturday (3:30 p.m./Sky) and have their Champions League opener in Bern three days later.
