Dortmund caught their first defeat of the season on Wednesday against Atletico Madrid. But what was more painful than the 0-2 defeat in the Champions League was the thigh of Roman Bürki. Dortmund's tough goalkeeper collided in a duel with Atletico Nikola Kalinic and suffered severe bruises.
Marwin Hitz: Bürkis the possibility of a replacement guard ready
Both Thursday and the last training on Friday missed the Swiss national goalkeeper during the Borussia training. A pure precaution? It will not be until today's match day that Lucien Favre, in coordination with Bürki, will decide whether the BVB 1 number is running today. One thing is clear: with Marwin Hitz, the old goalkeeper at FC Augsburg, BVB has a good alternative to their own box.
However, if Bürki has to miss the top match against Bayern, it will be a significant weakening. The 27-year-old was shining, thwarted this season, 36 percent of all great opportunities. This is the best value for the Bundesliga – and the quality that Lucien Favre's team can do well today. Favre himself said Thursday: "I think Roman is fine."
