Borussia Dortmund are just one win away from lifting the Bundesliga title for the first in eleven years. They play Mainz at home this Saturday and could see League title triumph if they secure the vital three points.
Dortmund are currently two points clear of Bayern Munich in second place. Bayern will play Koln this weekend and need a win or draw to level with Dortmund. Dortmund sports director Sebastian Kehl, who previously captained the side in 2011-12 which won the league under former boss Jurgen Klopp, said: “We cannot allow this to be taken from us.
“We just have to win one more time. Basically I have a good feeling, but I know that we have to perform really well one more time and then we will deserve it. When the players ride the bus to the stadium they will be cheered on by the crowds. That will push them.”
This season could be the final time England’s Jude Bellingham plays with the side with rumours swirling around that the 19-year-old will move to Spain’s Real Madrid. The midfielder is currently nursing a knee injury and could well be a doubt for Saturday’s title decider.
