Dortmund will not look like a team ‘fighting relegation’ against Juventus [divider]
Borussia Dortmund will not look like a team fighting against relegation when they take on Juventus in the Champions League Round of 32 according to the Bundesliga outfits manager Jurgen Klopp.
“You will not think on Tuesday that we are fighting against relegation,” Klopp was quoted as saying by Goal.
“Juventus have a very experienced team, which brings much quality on the pitch. I think it will be tough for both teams and both have a chance to get through.”
Dortmund have recovered from a poor run of form that saw them drop into the relegation zone.
The German giants have won three consecutive games in the Bundesliga and moved into 12th place.
The Bundesliga outfit beat Juventus 3-1 in the 1996-97 Champions League final in Munich the last time these two sides met.
Juve have not progressed past this stage of the competition since the 2002-03.
Nuri Şahin and İlkay Gündoğan – both of Turkish origin – are expected to start against Juventus.
