Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp has suggested that Mats Hummels and Marco Reus might recover in time to face 1860 Munich for their DFB Pokal clash on Tuesday.
Hummels suffered a back injury during his side's 2-1 defeat to Napoli in the Champions League last week, while Reus picked up a knock in the 1-1 draw at Nurnberg on Saturday and was withdrawn at halftime; however, Klopp says that Hummels has been training well, although he is slightly less optimistic on the former Borussia Monchengladbach forward's progress.
"Mats made a good impression in training," Klopp said at a press conference. "Marco, meanwhile, is getting better. However, he's still far from being good."
Meanwhile, Klopp called for his men to focus on what he expects to be a difficult encounter at the Allianz Arena.
"I'm looking forward to the match. It's a difficult, yet appealing tie," Klopp said. "We are warned. I will analyze the opponent, then we will make our conclusions."
