Roberto Firmino injury latest: Brazilian travelling to Dortmund but faces late fitness test

Posted by

Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino appears to be touch-and-go for tomorrow’s massive Europa League tie with Borussia Dortmund as he nurses a hamstring strain.

According to The Express, the Brazilian will travel with the squad to Germany for the first leg of our highly-anticipated quarter-final tie with Jurgen Klopp’s former club.

And The Express understands that the 24-year-old will undergo a late fitness test during Liverpool’s training session at the Westfalenstadion on Wednesday evening.

Firmino has not played since coming off early in the 1-1 draw with Manchester United at Old Trafford on March 17, which booked us our date of destiny with Dortmund.

But Klopp will be desperate to have the South American, who has nine goals in 38 games this season, available and will give him every chance to prove his fitness.

We will need to be as close to full strength as possible to get a good result at Dortmund, and having Firmino fit, even if only for an hour, would be a huge boost.
