Borussia Dortmund coach Edin Terzic gives squad update ahead of clash with Bayern Munich
Saturday's Klassiker could be pivotal in the Bundesliga title race, with just one point separating the two teams. The contest also marks Thomas Tuchel's first game in the Bayern Munich dugout, and he will be keen to start his tenure with a positive result against his former side, Borussia Dortmund. Bayern have won their last eight Bundesliga home meetings against Dortmund, scoring 33 goals in those victories. Terzic revealed that Nico Schlotterbeck and Jamie Bynoe-Gittens are slight doubts, while six players have returned, including regular starters Gregor Kobel, Emre Can, and Julian Brandt. "Gio Reyna and Thomas Meunier are out. Gio returned from his international trip with a cold and has been resting since yesterday. Thomas has been suffering from back problems for over a week, and he had to stop training yesterday. There are question marks over Nico Schlotterbeck, who returned to training yesterday, and Jamie Bynoe-Gittens, who had no complaints yesterday," Terzic told reporters. "But we have six players back who did not play against Köln: Gregor Kobel, Emre Can after his yellow card suspension, Salih Özcan, 'Jule' Brandt, Karim Adeyemi, and Youssoufa Moukoko. With Adeyemi and Moukoko, we'll have to see if they're fit enough to play tomorrow. They have been out for weeks," added Terzic. It remains to be seen whether Terzic will include the returning players in the starting line-up or on the substitutes' bench. Regardless, fans are eagerly anticipating a thrilling encounter between the two German giants.
