The report from the German Football Federation (DFB) has concluded that the Borussia Dortmund player, Abdou Diallo, will be suspended for one league game as a result of his unsportsmanlike conduct.

In the game against TSG Hoffenheim on 22 September 2018, Diallo was sent off by Referee Harm Osmers (Hanover) in the 76th minute and will consequently miss the next home game against 1. FC Nuremberg.
