Achraf Hakimi has been ruled out for the rest of the season after suffering a broken metatarsal in Borussia Dortmund's 2-0 win over Wolfsburg at the weekend. 

The full-back – on loan from Real Madrid – came on as a substitute to replace the injured Abdou Diallo in the 49th minute but then had to be replaced himself with 16 minutes remaining. 

He will now miss the club's remaining Bundesliga fixtures – including Saturday's pivotal clash against title rival Bayern Munich – and faces a race to be fit for Morocco's Africa Cup of Nations campaign.

Hakimi has featured 28 times for Lucien Favre's side in all competitions this term, scoring three goals.

The club also confirmed that Diallo suffered a muscle strain but has not specified how long he will be out of action.

Dortmund goes into the game against Bayern two points ahead of its opponent after Niko Kovac's side drew 1-1 with Freiburg at the weekend.
