Borussia Dortmund has to play VfB Stuttgart on Saturday afternoon (3:30 p.m.). Captain Marco Reus is probably still out - there is also a question mark behind Marius Wolf.
After the cup win against Hannover 96, BVB urgently need to do better at the weekend in order not to lose touch with the top places in the Bundesliga. If you want to score points against the recently strong Swabians, who won 4-1 against Bochum and 6-0 against Bielefeld, you need a clear improvement in performance compared to the game at Hanover.
To make matters worse, Edin Terzic will probably still have to do without Marco Reus against VfB. The captain celebrated his comeback against Union last Sunday after an ankle injury - but this apparently came too early, which is why he had to sit out the cup again. According to Sky information, the veteran will also pause against VfB because a return too early “should not be risked a second time”.
Edin Terzic at least confirmed on Friday afternoon that there is still a question mark behind his captain. "Marco felt his foot hurt more," said the BVB coach, who wants to wait for further developments until kick-off. The same applies to Marius Wolf, who missed the last two games due to an infection.
Thomas Meunier, who has to pause for a longer period after breaking a cheekbone, joined the already known long-term absences against Hannover 96. "He won't be used again this year for us. We hope he makes it to the World Cup. He had a small surgical procedure," said Terzic (via RN) about the right-back.
