The wet, cold Brackel laughed a lot Friday afternoon. The final training of the BVB before the home game against VfL Wolfsburg (Saturday, 3.30pm) took place in modest weather – the mood after winning the cup against Mönchengladbach was still blinding.
In the last burning exercise in two groups, each missed shot – and there were several – commented loudly. Again with the party were Marco Reus (after muscular problems) and Mats Hummels (after gastrointestinal flu). The captain and the defense chief drove off with the hotel in the evening – their return to the Dortmund court on Saturday is therefore highly likely. Also goalkeeper Roman Bürki (after the flu) got on a team bus.
Whether Lucien Favre will return Reus and Hummel directly from the start in connection with three important matches within seven days (Wolfsburg, Inter Milan, Bayern Munich) remains to be seen.
