Nurnberg right back Timothy Chandler was injured in practice and will likely miss this weekend's match vs. Borussia Dortmund. Specifically, Chandler cut his instep while training.

I'm assuming this is not a severe injury, but either way Chandler is missing a big game. First off, Nurnberg is only two points out of a Europe spot, as the 5th place finisher in the Bundesliga qualifies for the Europa League (the NIT of Champions League). Second, Nurnberg can spoil Borussia Dortmund's title hopes since Dortmund could clinch the Bundesliga championship with a win.
