The German classic is on the program on Saturday. Before the game there is a rumor from Spain about Nati star Manuel Akanji.
Akanji could miss BVB against Bayern.
He could hardly train during the week.
BVB coach Rose said: “It will certainly be a precision landing”.
Manuel Akanji is probably on the shopping list at Real Madrid.
At the weekend there will be a classic in the Bundesliga.
BVB meet Bayern Munich.
Manuel Akanji has already met Bayern nine times with BVB. His record – not exactly crowned with success. BVB could only win twice with Akanji. The next duel is on Saturday at 6.30 p.m. It is currently unclear how often these duels will come to Akanji. His contract with Borussia will run until 2023, but now there should be an interest from the Spanish league.
As «Diario Gol» writes, Real Madrid would like to sign the Nati star. The Swiss is said to have stopped all talks with BVB about an extension of his contract beyond 2023 when he learned of the royal interests, according to the Spanish portal. What is really true about this rumor is difficult to say. Real Madrid does not currently have many seasoned central defenders in their squad.
Akanji will now focus clearly on the “classic”. It is unclear whether he can play at all. He could hardly exercise during the week. “It will definitely be a precision landing,” said BVB coach Marco Rose. Giovanni Reyna, Thorgan Hazard and Youssoufa Moukoko will definitely fail. After all: The 45-year-old Rose can certainly fall back on Erling Haaland again. The super striker, who already scored on his comeback in Wolfsburg, will be in the starting line-up. “We all know that we have to be a little careful,” said Rose on Friday: “It will most likely not be enough for 90 minutes. For how long, we'll see. ”
Bayern with problems in midfield
Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann also does not have all the players available. He has to do without midfield director Joshua Kimmich and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting because of Corona. Now there is also a question mark behind Leon Goretzka's commitment. “It is 60:50 that he can go and play,” said Nagelsmann on Friday. With the numbers game, the 34-year-old coach expressed his hope that Goretzka will be ready for action despite the problems with the patellar tendon.
Another failure threatens Serge Gnabry. According to “Bild”, the winger had to end the final training early. The association initially did not announce any details. Also missing are Josip Stanisic and Marcel Sabitzer. “It's an important game for our club, it's an important game for the league,” said Nagelsmann before the duel, the top Munich team at Dortmund with 31 points and 30 points. The game will be available from 6.15 p.m. in the live ticker.
How many spectators? While a maximum of 750 spectators may be present in the state of Bavaria, a maximum of 15,000 spectators are possible in Dortmund, i.e. North Rhine-Westphalia. BVB initially put 67,000 tickets on sale, but had to cancel them due to the new Corona regulation.
