Bundesliga: BVB starts preparation for top game

Dortmund (AP) – Borussia Dortmund started preparing for the top Bundesliga match against FC Bayern Munich on Saturday with Giovanni Reyna and Raphael Guerreiro.

Jude Bellingham, on the other hand, was absent from training. Team training is not yet possible for the 18-year-old who has a knee bruise. For Reyna, on the other hand, surprisingly. The 19-year-old American was missing BVB since mid-September due to a muscle injury. It is still questionable whether he will be able to play against Bayern again on Saturday.

In the meantime, given the precarious pandemic, it is becoming increasingly unlikely that the top game can take place in front of 67,000 spectators as planned. NRW Prime Minister Hendrik Wüst announced after the federal-state consultations that the number of spectators would also be restricted in football stadiums. “What matters is: There can and will not be pictures like those from the weekend in Cologne,” said Wüst with reference to the Bundesliga game between 1. FC Cologne and Borussia Mönchengladbach. The arena was sold out with 50,000 spectators.

Wüst did not commit to a specific number of possible viewers on Tuesday. One will wait for the decisions of the Bund-Länder-Round on Thursday, which will then also be implemented in North Rhine-Westphalia.
