Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp hopes to have Hummels, Schmelzer and Reus fit for the German Cup match in Munich.
“It is no easy task because 1860 have a good team and are looking for promotion from the second division. Of course, we are favourites to progress. I am looking forward to the game; it’s a tough challenge but one we relish,” BVB official website quotes Klopp.
While Mats Hummels showed encouraging signs during gentle training, his fitness still remains as uncertain as does that of Marco Reus. Marcel Schmelzer’s thigh injury has shown signs of improvement too.
