RB Leipzig will have to do without forward Dani Olmo and captain Willi Orban for several weeks after both players picked up knee injuries on international duty, the Bundesliga club confirmed on Tuesday.
Spain forward Olmo will miss “a few games” while Hungary defender Orban “will be out for ten weeks”, the German Cup winners tweeted.
Olmo returned from Spain duty earlier in the week and underwent tests to diagnose the injury to his right knee.
The forward, who extended his deal at the club until 2027 in June, has been in stellar form for Leipzig this season, scoring five goals and assisting once in four competitive games.
Orban also injured his right knee.
Leipzig hosts Augsburg this Saturday, before travelling to face Swiss side Young Boys Bern next Tuesday in the Champions League.
