Berlin:

Dortmund star Mario Goetze will miss the restart of the Bundesliga season on Sunday at Hamburg because of an ongoing groin problem, coach Juergen Klopp said.

"He has a four percent chance of playing so it's not worth taking the risk. There are other players in form," said Klopp.

Goetze, 19, did not play in a friendly win against German third division side Oberhausen on Wednesday.

Defending champions Dortmund are second in the German league behind Bayern Munich, as the Bundesliga returns to action after a four-week winter break.
